Cradlewise smart crib reviews in the press


“A crib that’s not only motion-activated but smart enough to learn your baby’s schedule and soothe them back to sleep when needed? The future of smart cribs is here, and it’s Cradlewise. This completely unique sleep solution is a bassinet, a crib and a baby monitor all rolled into one (very) smart package.”

Awarded one of TIME’s Best Inventions of 2020, “Most self-rocking cradles respond when a baby cries, but Cradlewise uses sensors to detect a child’s first stirrings. Based on the baby’s sleep schedule, the crib then determines whether to soothe them back to sleep with bouncing motions or to let them wake up.”

Awarded House Beautiful’s 2023 Live Better Awards, “Cradlewise was kind enough to send me their smart crib to test for our 2023 Live Better Awards, and I was a little worried that I was the wrong audience for it altogether. But having it has been a win for our whole family. When the baby sleeps, the toddler sleeps, we sleep, and somehow four people fit comfortably in this tiny apartment.”

The Everymom

“Cradlewise senses and learns your baby’s sleep patterns to recognize when it is still time to sleep and when it is OK to wake. It starts soothing before your baby gets distressed—meaning, no noise from baby’s cries. Instead, it spots wake-up signs when baby is in the ‘quiet phase’ of waking up—very still but awake and taking in the environment”

Happy Kid Award-winner, 2023, in the Happy Home category, “Its Scandi-chic design is just; the Cradlewise Smart Crib has earned rave reviews for its gentle (and quiet) bouncing motion, which lulls babies to sleep. There’s a built-in baby monitor, and it converts from bassinet to crib, so you get more than a few months’ use out of it—which puts it ahead of another pricey product which shall go unnamed.”

The Cut

“While this crib is definitely a splurge, it has everything a new mom could possibly want. It converts from a bassinet to a crib for 24 months of use, and it has a baby monitor, soothing sound machine, and automatic bouncing motion built in. With the accompanying app, it tracks the baby’s sleep schedule, monitors video, and gives notifications when your little one is stirring and needs to be tended to. Mom will sleep so much better, and the gift of rest is priceless, right?”

Pregnant Chicken

“The standout for me is that it’s a crib vs. a bassinet, so you can use it for a longer period of time (as soon as your baby starts rolling, they have to come out of a bassinet because they can get on their knees and yeet themselves out of there.) It’s not shocking that it’s pricey but I would have sawed off my right arm to get four consecutive hours of sleep when I had a newborn, so I would have been the target market for this.”

“Cradlewise is the only crib on the market that automatically soothes your baby BEFORE they cry. What’s not to love about a built-in night nurse?”

Cradlewise reviews from Cradlewise parents

“The fact that we watched a live demo, and we could ask any questions that we needed to. At one time, TJ and I were just demo attendees. We trusted Radhika (co-founder and CEO of Cradlewise) and the product. I don’t have any family close by; all of my family live in Oklahoma and Kansas. And so I leaned on Cradlewise as that extra pair of hands since day one, and now It’s helping me with baby two. I’m getting even more sleep with the second baby than I was with the first, which is remarkable.”

Cradlewise reviews from Cradlewise parents Shanti Lowry

“To me, Cradlewise was a full system—it was everything in one. It addressed all of the issues that I was worried about in one beautiful package. It’s got a monitor, and it’s got a really smart app that I love. I can be anywhere, and I can check in, change the intensity, change the music, listen to her live, or watch her live from anywhere. And I love that it has customizable music. This just seems like the smartest thing to get because you have the motion, you have the sound, and you have the monitor.”

Cradlewise reviews from Cradlewise parents

We loved that it’s everything in one. We didn’t need to buy a crib, a bassinet, a monitor and a noise machine, it’s all together. Not only will it help to keep the baby asleep, soothed and calm, but it’s also that peace of mind of being able to have that monitor to look in on him and know that he’s safe.”  (Melanie)

Lauren and Justin, parents of four kids (used Cradlewise with their youngest child, Sofia)

Cradlewise reviews from Cradlewise parents

“We’ve definitely taken advantage of the auto bounce feature. That has been extremely helpful because, as you know, babies don’t always want to connect their sleep cycle. And [auto-bounce] has just made all the difference: Watching her stir and maybe start to wake up on the app, you see that bounce feature come on and you see her relax. It’s really gained us extra time during naptime where I can focus on the other kids. We can keep playing or doing what we’re doing, and I don’t have to jump up to go make sure that she’s going to nap for a little bit longer.”

Cradlewise reviews from Cradlewise parents

“I think one way Cradlewise has helped us achieve our sleep goals throughout this first five-month period is the sense of security it gives us at night going to sleep and putting our child down. I think we know that he’s taken care of in the best possible way,” says JP.

Cradlewise reviews from Cradlewise parents

“I’m very close with my family, and in that initial month, I felt like I had to let so many people know how Armour was doing. The Cradlewise app took the stress away. Here was an app they could log in to and literally watch Armour sleep. The app meant that I could get the extra rest that I needed too.”

Cradlewise reviews from Cradlewise parents

“We were in the hospital for probably seven, eight days, between labor and delivery and then like recovery, so we had a few days without the crib. So once [the baby] came home and the crib was available to use as a tool, it was a palpable change. We could clearly tell that we had something that was really helping with managing sleep for both of us and the baby as well.”

Cradlewise reviews from Cradlewise parents

 “Just being a parent, and then having to go to work as a mom, not being able to get an adequate night’s sleep can be kind of detrimental. Not getting enough hours can ultimately hurt us. Everyone’s safety benefits from mom getting enough rest. The Cradlewise helps immensely by keeping him asleep and prolonging his sleep time… if I can get a little more sleep, I can be a better mom for him.”

First-time parents Pragnya and Sriram, parents of baby Maya

Cradlewise smart crib reviews by Cradlewise parents

“The major value that we got was like those night wakings. What would happen as a new mom is every time Maya got up, I would get up as well and pat her down. And that is like every few minutes during the limited sleep time that I was getting and that time was interrupted by me just trying to be there for my baby. But once the crib came in, it allowed us to have more of a continuous night of sleep. So that was a relief in those early months and obviously a continuing source since we realized that the crib could do that.”
