Snuggle with the Snoedel

Snoedel Group

Snoedel with Brenden

A Snoedel? Yes, the Dutch word “Snoedel” means to “Snuggle!” The cuddly-soft, 100% cotton flannel Snoedel is a special bonding and sleeping aid for all babies, even premature infants! Infused with “aromatherapy of the very best kind – the scent of Mom,” the Snoedel has been uniquely designed to absorb and retain a mother, father or other caregiver’s scent. Simply place next to the parent for a couple days prior to giving the Snoedel to the baby, and the comforting scent of Mom or Dad is slowly released to calm and soothe the little one. This is especially useful for those infants that have to spend some time in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to aid in bonding and ease distress. The Snoedel can be gently machine washed and dried. Once washed, Mom or Dad will want to re-infuse the Snoedel with their scent. Available online in a variety of patterns at
