1. IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ FIRST!
The Pico is designed to attach to your baby’s diaper or child’s pajama pants while they sleep and will continously monitor breathing motion, skin temperature, sleep position and sleep state. If connected, the information is streamed to your smartphone via BLE (Bluetooth low energy) technology.
Up to four (4) Pico’s can be linked to a smartphone at one time.
Only one (1) smartphone can monitor your baby at a time.
Use the correct size diaper (nappy) to ensure that the Pico sits securely and squarely on the diaper.
To ensure a firm grip, fold the top of the diaper over before attaching the Pico. If neccesary, use the diaper adjusters to provide a snug fit around your baby’s tummy.
To attach the Pico, lift the top lever to release the clip. Slide the Pico onto the waistband or your child’s pants or baby’s diaper, placing your fingers between the clip and skin to ensure that the skin does not get pinched between the clip and clothing/diaper. A baby’s skin is especially supple and this can happen quite easily. Close the lever to secure the Pico into place. Double check to ensure that no skin is caught in the clip.
Switch the Pico on by briefly pressing the power button. All indicator lights will flash and a start-up tone will be heard. Alternatively, switch the Pico on by pressing the power button in the app. The start-up tone will be silent if controlled via the app. Immediately after the start-up sequence, the battery light will flash to indicate the battery state of charge. If not already connected to your app, press the “Connect” button in the app overview screen to initiate the connection to your phone.
In order for the Pico to record your baby’s position accurately, go to the settings page on the app and set where the Pico has been attached to your baby diaper or child’s pajama pants. Depending on your baby’s sleep position, you can also place the Pico to the left or right-hand side of the naval. Please make sure that the Pico has been squarely attached to the pants or diaper.
Always follow the above procedure to ensure your baby’s breathing movement is being monitored.
Always handle the Pico with care to prevent damage to clip. When travelling, always store it inside the charging cradle. To avoid false alarms, always pause your Pico when breastfeeding, changing your baby’s diaper or holding your baby in your arms.
The Pico is a portable baby breathing motion monitor which safely and conveniently monitors your baby or child’s breathing motions while sleeping.
This equipment is intended to be operated by the baby or child’s caregiver. The caregiver must have a good understanding of the instructions and safety measures within the user manual. Please familiarize yourself with the instructions and share with anyone caring for your baby or child.
The Pico safely and conveniently monitors your baby’s breathing motion while sleeping to provide an early intervention opportunity when irregular breathing motion is detected.
The Pico should be clipped onto your baby’s diaper (nappy) or child’s pajama pants. No cords, wires, sensor pads, or external power are required. The Pico is not suitable for co-sleeping or bed sharing.
The Pico detects even the slightest breathing movement and will alert you if your baby’s breathing movement stops for a period of 20 seconds. The Pico will first vibrate gently after 15 seconds in an attempt to rouse the baby.
If the vibration succeeds in rousing the baby and breathing is detected after such an event the Pico will continue to monitor breathing movement. After three vibration/rouse events, the Rouse Warning will alert you to the fact that your baby’s breathing movements have stopped for 15 seconds on three occasions.
The Rouse Warning is characterized by a short beep and flashing of the red Movement Indicator Light (1) every 2 seconds. Monitoring will continue when the Rouse Warning is active but will require the caregiver to attend to the baby to investigate. The Rouse Warning alarm can be reset by briefly turning the device off and then back on. The repeat rouse warning feature can be disabled using the application.
The Pico will also measure your the position your baby is in and your baby’s skin temperature.
3. PRECAUTIONS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS
- This device is not intended to prevent or monitor a disease or condition such as Obstructive Apnoea.
- Movement from external sources such as being pushed in a pram or travelling in a vehicle or aircraft may be detected by Pico’s sensor. The Pico should not be relied upon where external sources of movement are present.
- The monitored baby must sleep in his/her own separate bed as the monitor may detect the breathing motion of any other person sharing the bed with your baby, and will not alarm as long as it detects movement.
- Radio transmitters such as cell phones, audio and video baby monitors, cordless phones, walkie-talkies, wireless routers, etc. may cause interference with the monitor’s ability to detect movement. The monitor should not be placed within 2 meters of other transmitting devices or electrical cables.
- No modification of this device is allowed.
- A single device should be dedicated for use with one baby only.
- In the unlikely event that small parts become detached from the Pico, this may result in a choking hazard.
- Small parts that have become detached for some unlikely reason may result in a choking hazard.
- In case your baby develops a skin sensitivity where the device makes contact with his/her skin, refer to section 7.11 in the manual. If the skin sensitivity persists, please contact us at [email protected]

Basic Pico Functions
The Movement Indicator Light flashes green on each movement. If no movement is detected for 15 seconds, your Pico will vibrate to rouse your baby. If no movement is detected for a further 5 seconds, your Pico will sound an audible alarm.
Basic App Functions
The Snuza Connect App is designed to bring you information on your baby’s breathing rate, body position, skin temperature, fall detection, battery levels and alert you if the Pico’s clip is open. Customise your warning settings to your preference in the App.
Warnings on the App can be dismissed by swiping them from left to right. This excludes breathing rate and fall detection. These can only be dismissed by pressing the power button on the device. Ensure that your smartphone is connected to the app in order to receive all notifications and warnings.
6. DIAPER FITMENT AND PLACEMENT
Correct diaper fitment is essential for the Pico to work. The thin flap of material at the top of the diaper must be folded over the thicker part before the diaper is closed (this is the section to which the Pico will be attached). The diaper should fit snugly on your baby with the top of the diaper just below his/her belly button. Loose fitting diapers will gape, causing the monitor to lose contact with your baby’s skin and false alarm. A very ‘full’ or wet diaper may also cause it to gape. If your baby sleeps on his or her side, the Pico should be placed to the left or right-hand side of your baby’s navel.
- The World Health Organisation recommends that babies sleep on their backs. Place the Pico near the centre of your baby’s tummy (1)
- If your baby prefers sleeping on his/her left side, attach your Pico to either position 4 or 2.
- If your baby prefers sleeping on his/her right side, attach your Pico on position 5 or 3.
- If your baby prefers sleeping on his/her tummy, attach your Pico close to position 4 or 5.
7.1 Fitting your Pico
When attaching the Pico you should put your fingers in between the baby’s nappy and the baby’s skin. Make sure that the monitor is clipped securely onto the diaper and away from the baby’s skin when clipping on in order not to harm the baby.
Clip the Pico all the way onto the diaper to the full extent of the clip. To attach lift the front lever to release the clip. Place the clip over the folded diaper to the full extent of the clip. Close the clip and click the locking lever closed as shown:
Make sure that the Pico is close to the baby’s tummy around the belly button area, although closer to the sides may suit different sleeping positions. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends that babies be placed to sleep on their back unless advised otherwise by a doctor. http://www.who.int/en/
- Place on tummy for back sleepers
- Place on side of tummy for belly sleepers
The Pico has a built-in alarm to indicate if the clip has been opened while in use. Before the alarm occurs, the Pico will beep slowly for 7 seconds to warn you to switch it off or to activate the pause function. If the clip remains open for a further 3 seconds, the Clip Open Alarm will be activated.
7.2 Switching on / off
The Pico can be turned on by briefly pressing the power button (6) and can be switched off by pressing and holding the power button (6) for 2 seconds. The corresponding startup and shutdown tones will be heard (refer to point 7.5)
Alternatively, the Pico can also be switched on and off directly from the app (if it has been enabled in the app settings). This allows you the convenience of switching it on if you forgot to when you attached it to the diaper, without disturbing your baby.
The Pico was designed to monitor your baby’s breathing motion, skin temperature and body position while sleeping. However, to prevent false alarms while your baby is not sleeping, (such as while breast feeding, changing the baby’s diaper, tummy time, etc.), the “Pause” function will allow you to temporarily pause monitoring for a userconfigurable (on the app) time while, for example, breast feeding or diaper changes.
The pause function can be activated directly from the app by tapping the pause button.
The Pico’s charging cradle (12) is a unique power charger which recharges the built-in battery by simply placing the Pico on the charging cradle.

The Pico can be clipped onto the folded waistband of the diaper or the waistband of elasticated pants. It is not recommended to have clothing between the Pico and the skin.
The Pico can be used under clothing, but not over. Too much clothing may attenuate or muffle the alarm. Make sure the alarm can be heard if baby is covered in clothing and/or blankets.
8. ROUSE WARNING
Note: If the smartphone is connected, all warnings and alarms, as well as all real-time data are visible on the app. During monitoring, if no breathing motion is detected for 15 seconds, the Pico vibrates gently in an attempt to rouse your baby.
If breathing motion resumes within the next 5 seconds, the Movement Indicator Light (2) will flash red on each subsequent breathing motion as an indication that there has been an event of no breathing motion for 15 seconds. With the Rouse Warning enabled, after 3 such vibration and successful rousing incidents, the Movement Indicator Light (2) will flash red every 2 seconds with a simultaneous audible beep.
This alerts you to the fact that your baby has stopped moving for 15 seconds on three occasions and has then resumed breathing motion after the Pico has vibrated. Note:- Monitoring will continue while the Rouse Warning is sounding. The Rouse Warning is automatically enabled each time the Pico is switched ON.
