Storing Your Snoo Smart Sleeper: A Step-by-Step Guide

As parents, we understand the importance of creating a safe and comfortable sleep environment for our little ones. The Snoo Smart Sleeper Bassinet has been a trusted companion for many families, offering a helping hand during those sleep-deprived early months. But, as all things do, the time comes when your baby outgrows their Snoo, and it’s time to store it away for future use or to pass it on. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to properly store your Snoo, so it remains in top condition for the next little dreamer.

Cleaning the Snoo Before Storage

Before you begin the storage process, it’s essential to clean the Snoo thoroughly. This ensures that it stays in good condition and is ready for use whenever you need it again. Here’s how to clean the Snoo:

  • Use a soft cloth, warm water, and mild baby-safe cleanser to spot clean the mesh siding.
  • For any stubborn stains, apply a baby-safe stain remover, but avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals.
  • The mesh is not designed to be removed, but you can unzip the panel at the head of the Snoo for dusting or vacuuming between the mesh and the frame.
  • Machine wash the water-resistant mattress cover in warm water with light-colored items and tumble dry on low heat.
  • Regularly check under the mattress for moisture and clean with mild soap and warm water as needed, but do not machine wash the mattress itself.
  • The Snoo Sack and sheets should be washed with similar colors in warm or cold water, avoiding chlorine bleach, and either air-dried or tumble dried on low heat.
  • Wipe down the base, platform, and legs with non-abrasive, hospital-safe cleaners.

Disassembling the Snoo

Once your Snoo is clean and dry, it’s time to disassemble it for storage. Follow these steps:

  1. Turn off and unplug the Snoo from the power source.
  2. Remove the mattress and all attached accessories, including the Snoo Sack and sheets.
  3. Flip the Snoo onto the dust bag or a soft surface to prevent scratching.
  4. Detach the legs by pressing the release buttons and pulling them away from the frame.
  5. Place all the parts, including the legs and power cord, back into the original packaging if available, or safely store them in a dry, cool space.

Packing the Snoo for Storage

Proper packing is crucial for preserving the condition of your Snoo. If you’ve kept the original box and dust bag, they’re perfect for this purpose. If not, find a sturdy box and soft packing materials to protect the bassinet. Securely pack the Snoo, ensuring nothing is loose inside the box, which could cause damage during movement.

Choosing the Right Storage Environment

The environment where you store your Snoo can significantly impact its longevity. Here are some tips on selecting the proper storage space:

  • Avoid damp areas to prevent mold and mildew growth.
  • Choose a cool, climate-controlled area since extreme temperatures can damage the materials.
  • Keep the Snoo away from direct sunlight, as UV rays can fade and weaken the fabric.
  • Ensure the storage area is clean and free from pests that could damage the Snoo.

Additional Snoo Storage Tips

Here are a few more suggestions to keep in mind:

  • Consider labeling the box with the contents and date of storage for easy identification.
  • If you plan to store the Snoo for an extended period, you might periodically check the condition of the bassinet.
  • Keep any instruction manuals or assembly guides with the Snoo, so you have them handy for reassembly.

By following these steps, you’ll ensure your Snoo Smart Sleeper is well-preserved and ready for its next round of sweet dreams.
