Now you can sleep easy with this mobile monitor that gives you peace of mind.

Snuza Hero is a mobile and easy-to-use movement monitor which clips onto baby's diaper to ensure that normal movement is maintained. Hero detects even the slightest movement and will alert you if your baby's movements are very weak or fall to less than 8 movements per minute. If no movement at all is detected for a period of 15 seconds, Hero will vibrate gently. Often this vibration is enough to rouse the baby, and Hero will revert to monitoring mode. After three vibration/rouse incidents, the Rouse Warning will alert you to the fact that your baby's movements have stopped for 15 seconds on three occasions. If no further movement is detected for another 5 seconds, an alarm will sound to alert you.
  • small - fits onto baby's diaper
  • portable
  • easy-to-use
  • vibration stimulation after 15 seconds
  • Rouse Warning
  • audible alarm after 20 seconds
  • Movement-rate Indicator to warn about weak or infrequent movement
  • Nett weight - 31 grams
  • Replacement batteries available to purchase seperately
Please Note - movement from a pram or a car might cause a false/positive indication to the sensor, therefore we do not advocate the use of Snuza in either of these situations.

However, as long as the babies “base” is stationary, then the Snuza can be used anywhere – this includes a pram etc … It can also be used with co-sleeping babies.

The huge plus of Snuza is its’ mobility and simplicity of use. No cables, cords or power to connect to. Easy to operate and clean. We recommend a gentle wipe with a damp cloth when needed

Hypoallergenic sensor tip (medical safe silicone) and lightweight, Snuza is also very suitable for prem babies.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How is Hero different from an 'under the mattress' monitor?
Although 'under the mattress' monitors also monitor movement in a similar manner to Snuza Hero, these monitors are generally not mobile. Hero can be left attached to the baby for constant monitoring or kept in the carrying case, attached and activated whenever required, no matter where the baby is.

What exactly is the vibration on the Hero model for?
This is a proactive stimulator which attempts to rouse your baby after 15 seconds of no movement. Very often, if a baby is still for this long, a little tactile stimulation gets the movement going again. And of course, if it fails to rouse the baby, the alarm will sound after a total of 20 seconds of no movement.

Why use a Snuza Hero?
Although there are already baby movement monitors on the market which alert parents or caregivers to any cessation in movement they do not offer mobility as they rely either on the availability of electricity, or on the baby being at home in its cot where the under-mattress monitors need to be placed. Snuza Hero monitors are fully mobile and can be used wherever baby is, eg in a carseat, stroller, pram, carrycot, etc.

How does a Snuza Hero work?
Once Hero is clipped onto the diaper and activated, it will immediately start monitoring movement. If your baby were to stop all movement for 15 seconds, Hero will emit a safe, vibrating stimulus to gently rouse the baby. If after 5 more seconds, movement has not resumed, Hero will sound an alarm to alert you to act.

Can I use Hero with reusable/fabric nappies?
Yes. If the fabric nappies are too thick for attachment, Hero should be securely attached to the nappy cover or waterproof pants - ensure a snug fit so that Hero maintains body contact. You may need to position Hero slightly to the side to ensure maximum contact.

Is Hero safe?
Absolutely! Baby's safety is paramount. Hero utilises an ultra-low voltage (3.6V) battery, emits no radiation and has no side effects.

Until what age is Hero recommended?
Biosentronics recommends that Hero be used until the age of 1 year.


"...It was an amazing product to use and I keep on recommending it to new mothers-to-be. I actually used it a couple of weeks ago as Ben was quite ill with the flu and was having trouble breathing and because he now sleeps in his own room, I am not always next to him. So we put it on during the night just in case something happened and I had a much better night's sleep knowing that if anything went wrong we would be alerted.

"I need to once again say that the SNUZA is an unbelievable device that provides real piece of mind; we honestly would not be able to sleep without it."

"As a new (neurotic) mom, I was terrified of SIDS. I found this product and purchased it to help soothe my fears. This has finally allowed me consistent night's peace. The first 3 weeks we had my daughter home I could not sleep. Every time I did not hear her breathe over the monitor I was sure something happened. Now I can sleep as long as my Bella has her baby beeper on!

"I bought a Snuza Hero for my daughter and have used it since birth. It is brilliant and is probably the best piece of baby equipment I bought.

Everyone with a baby needs one of these!

Gwen's Nana gave us a Snuza Hero, and I am so grateful she did! I am terrified of SIDS, especially with a premie, who is more susceptible to it. 

The alarm went off this morning around 5 am to let me know that my daughter had not taken a breath in 20+ seconds, I was able to wake her and she started breathing again. This could have ended tragically without the Snuza. 

Thank you God, Snuza, and Nana! This simple little device saved my baby's life this morning!
