SNOO often calms fussing within 40-60 seconds. So, if fussing stops as SNOO increases the motion/sound, your baby just needed a little more soothing and is not very hungry.
However, if the crying is continuing for more than a minute, it usually means your baby needs some help…a feeding, a diaper change, or just a loving touch!
You definitely do not need to wait for the bed to “time out” and stop itself. We suggest waiting until SNOO increases to level 2 (green) or 3 (yellow) before intervening. Trust your instincts!
