Can I use SNOO if my baby has acid reflux?

Yes, you can!

All babies have some reflux. Most just have a little (just some "spitting up”), but some have a lot. Of course, if a baby is not burped before being put down, a big wet burp with lots of milk can happen after being placed in any bed.

If your baby vomits more than 5 times a day and more than an ounce each time, you should consult your doctor about gastroesophageal reflux (GER).

Some parents ask if SNOO’s rocking might cause more spitting up. Of course, any baby can spit up when put down on the back (which is not a choking concern, babies naturally turn their head when it happens). When babies cry, they tend to tighten their stomachs and spit up even more. Since SNOO reduces crying, it usually reduces spitting up.
