Is it safe to have my baby in SNOO if they occasionally throw up?

For the past 20 years, doctors have recommended that babies only sleep on the back. During that period, millions of babies have vomited, but it is almost unheard of for a baby to choke. That’s why there is no need to worry about your infant’s safety should she throw up in SNOO.

SNOO allows your baby to turn her head to the side when throwing up. And, SNOO’s motion does not increase spitting up. In fact, fussy babies often vomit—because they are tightening their stomach muscles when they cry. So, by reducing crying, SNOO can actually reduce spitting up.
