Our Mission

Happiest Baby is a mission-driven company helping parents raise healthy, happy children and saving lives. We created SNOO, the world's first smart sleeper and the safest baby bed ever made and are also making/developing many more landmark products, content, and services.

SNOO is proven to add 1-2 hours of sleep per night and to help protect babies from SIDS (which kills 3500 sleeping babies/year). SNOO has won more top awards than any other baby product, helped hundreds of thousands of parents, is used in over 100 hospitals, is a top benefit at scores of companies, and has been exhibited in six of the world's top museums (including being invited into the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution!).

Happiest Baby was founded by America’s most trusted pediatrician, Dr. Harvey Karp, and his entrepreneur wife, Nina Montée-Karp. Dr. Karp’s celebrated books/videos have helped millions of parents and are translated into over thirty languages.  Released in 2016, SNOO is the result of a collaboration between Dr. Karp, award-winning industrial designer Yves Behar (founder of SF-based, Fuseproject) and Dr. Deb Roy (Director, Laboratory for Social Machines, MIT Media Lab).
