We've put together a cutting-edge think tank of scientists, engineers, physicians, academic experts, and thought leaders to develop best-in-class research among three primary pillars: Sleep Health, Postpartum Anxiety & Depression, and Pediatric Health and Wellness

We're transforming the health and wellness of families through research, funded studies, and sleep data analysis

"Our proprietary algorithms - the ones that give families the most accurate sleep information about their babies - were developed in Nanit Lab in collaboration with the world's top pediatric sleep researchers."

- Sarah Dorsett, CEO of Nanit


With nearly 2 billion hours of sleep tracked to date, Nanit currently owns the world's largest set of continuous baby sleep health data

"Nanit Lab is focused on advancing and improving the most exciting ideas of today to lead the future of parenting, including integration of research findings across products, enhanced personalization of the Nanit experience and expanded content access on a variety of platforms."

- Natalie Barnett, VP of Clinical Research
