    Great for Great Grand

    |
    Posted .

    I’m a new great grandmother! What an interesting time with all the technology available. When I saw this item, I was fascinated. My strength isn’t what it once was and I feared that holding my great grandson for long periods might be a bit difficult now. The mamaroo arrived two days after the new baby. It was very simple to set up. We got it plugged in and downloaded the app. It synced right up to my iPhone. I love the sounds it plays, especially the “heartbeat.” The ability to use it to play lullaby’s via the built in speakers and a MP3 player is nice. The movements are clearly well thought out and very smooth. There are several different movements that mimic rocking, swaying and even car rides. All of these are easily set or changed via the app. The new great grand baby loved it. We put him in and set the heartbeat sound and swaying movement, he was asleep in seconds. Of course I DID hold him close to my heart for a little while before trying out the new mamaroo. It also synced to my sons iPhone easily as well. It seems a bit pricy for young parents to buy, but that’s why we greatgrands and grandparents ar good to keep around. This is being used for his nighttime naps as well. Guess folks don’t use bassinets anymore. I think this is a great addition for new parents.

    My 3month old baby absolutely loves this swing. As soon as I put her in there she started smiling. I have a very colic baby thats hard to keep her content but this swing makes her so happy, it makes her feel like she is in the car. The speaker is terrible along with the sounds. You can only plug it to your phone if you have a headphone input. The toys are not moble, and the material is not soft, its a rough material like a rain jacket. I wish they would of put cusion where her feet is at so she's not banging her feet on the base. Other than, it was worth buying it for my little, I just wish it wasnt expensive. It just swinging my baby to sleep. As long she is happy and able to fall asleep while I can get things done, I'm glad I bought it for her. It may not work for all babies, but it worked for her so much since she likes being swung, or car rides.

    4moms mamaRoo 4 infant seat – grey classic

    |
    Posted .

    The mamaroo 4 is surprisingly lightweight compared to similar products from competitor but the unique humanlike movements is what makes it special and it stands out. The mamaroo comes in a compact box and is very easy to assemble. It takes around 15 minutes to go through the instructions and set it up. The seat is very plush and also reclines completely to adjust to any position. There are 3 toy balls that can be attached above to position over the babys head to entertain the baby. The balls are multicolored and each one is different, crinkle, rattle and mirror. The mamaroo 4 is bluetooth enabled and you can control motion and sound form a tablet or a phone. It also has soothing sounds built-in and also an option to plug in mp3 if needed. However the humanlike movements is no doubt the best feature and it simulates free swing, kangaroo hop, car ride, wave and rock-a-bye. This definitely keeps the baby comfortable and amused. After a week of use we found that the baby would fall asleep in about 10 minutes which would take mom around 30 on the lap otherwise. This is an excellent product and a must have for busy moms and dads.

    The 4moms MamaRoo is incredible for soothing my 1 month old. The black and white or vibrant colored balls keep her entertained long enough for me to cook dinner! The app for the phone is incredibly easy to use. I love having the ability to connect to the MamaRoo though my phone to change the settings! The only improvement they can make for this is making the seat adjustable in the direction it faces. This would make the MamaRoo perfect! I have found the best motion for my infant is the “Car-Ride” feature set to level 2. This particular feature allows her to sleep! Another aspect of the MamaRoo I really love is how light weight it is. I can easily move it room to room without it taking too much time or energy. This is a very well designed product overall! You won’t regret purchasing it.

    Finally, some rest time

    |
    Posted .

    So let me start off saying, my baby would never let me put him down, because he never liked just sitting/laying still. He ALWAYS wanted to be held and moving. Does anyone have a solution??? YUP! The 4moms mamaRoo sure does. He loves it. He really, really loves it. I can finally set him down in it, and get him to fall asleep in it, whereas before I had to pace around the room, bouncing and rocking him to sleep. Then I had to figure out a way to lay him down, without him waking up. YEAH, not an easy task. This is literally a marriage saver. I can finally get more sleep, and neither of us (mama/daddy) are as crabby anymore. I love that the unit has an app that I can change the setup and different rocking/bouncing patterns. My son has tried the swing, but the constant same feeling got old after a while, so he was ok for a little bit, but after a few minutes, he realized I was walking around, and he was doing the same thing over and over. This 4moms mamaRoo totally changed my daily routine. I can actually get laundry done, and sit to have a coffee. Yeah, that is right....SIT and have a coffee. The app allows me to change speed, the motion, sounds, and volume of the music/sounds. That way, I can change things up, if he starts to get fussy. The mobile attachment is 3 little soft egg-like things. Yellow, magenta and cyan. The baby seat movements are like either a car ride, kangaroo, tree swing, rock-a-bye or a circle wave. My son likes the Kangaroo and car ride the best. They replicate my movements the most, and are the least monotonous of the selections. Being able to slowly change the speed is great. I can tell if he is falling asleep, I can slow it down to a stop, then let him sleep soundly. I love this device. Thank you 4moms mamaRoo. Well worth the price.

    Wish I had this as a baby

    This is the Iron Man 'suit' for a baby, but as a chair/seat. Or the equivalent of Batman's Batmobile for babies. It's really a sweet ride that I wish I had as a baby, but I guess I wouldn't really know either way since I don't remember being a baby... But nonetheless, to not get technical, it's like a comfortable roller coaster for a baby, with the mamaRoo being able to move in a variety of directions. The material is soft and comfortable. All that it's missing is the ability to move around like a Roomba.

    Great, but not for all

    Every single child is the same, right? Unfortunately not. Although my child specifically did not like the seat that is attached to the swing, that does not mean it will be the same for every child. The swing we had for our first child had nearly an identical rocking motion as this, and our son loved it. This time around not the same. Aside from my kid being picky, there are many neat features that are built within this swing. The top two items that i enjoyed are the rocking motion, and the compact size of the swing. Back and forth, up and down, S pattern, you name it, this swing can do it. My first born liked a slight up and down motion, this swing can do it. Out youngest enjoys a back and forth motion, this swing can do that too. Again, ever child is different, and this swing takes that into consideration. I think the motion alone is enough of an improvement to give most kids enough comfort to catch some much needed z's. Secondly, the shape and build of this swing is not typical. It is built from the ground up, opposed to a traditional swing that you;d see on a playground. This allows less clearance to be needed when moving it from room to room. This also is one less thing in the way for when my 2 year old is running full speed while staring at his feed to smash his head into. Its a well thought out design that is easy to maneuver with no sharp corners to bump any little one's heads. All in all, worth the price tag and able to provide a wide range of motions to assure comfort for the family's new arrival.

    Ecstatic to give arms a rest

    Posted .

    Tried this out and my teams arms are resting well. Got this for the daycare and we wanted to make sure our infants got enough time being held or for those who get fussy. The sounds are great and it turns out the rock a baby feature on at a slow pace is soothing for them and myself. It is entrancing. The recline feature is so good! It makes it easy to not bother a little one if they are napping. I really like the color combo here and the fact that they aren’t lime green and super bright colors. It makes it a art piece as well in the room. The matte metal for the frame is beautiful and the cloth for the seat is easy to clean. Definitely need another one for the infant’s room but this one is doing wonders for everyone!

    My baby has colic and this swing did not help him. The only thing that helps is having him rest on His belly which is on my chest. I’ve tried everything possible including baby ranitidine and him sleeping on his belly is the only relief I get from the screaming and crying. He is now 7 weeks old and still going strong won’t take a pacifier either. This swing does as it should and the Bluetooth is a nice feature. Definitely need the infant insert for new babies it’s ridiculous the swing doesn’t come with it.

    Teched Out Baby Rocker

    |
    Posted .

    Talk about a fancy baby swing. This thing looks like it belongs on the international space station or in an Apple store, one of the two! And my baby loves it, no doubt about it. The build quality on this guy is great, the cradle is solid metal, along with the arm. I feel very safe putting our child in it. The motor seems strong and doesn't make too loud of a noise when it's on. One of the cooler features to me about the build, is how easy the seat cover comes off. Two zippers and it's off. You don't have to tug or stretch anything, very good idea here. The mamaroo features 6 modes, all of which are noticeably different. I couldn't tell you if my baby noticed the difference but, I did and maybe your baby will like one over the other. There's also a variable speed setting 1-5 that will get this thing rocking pretty good but, still safely. You can also control everything through a Bluetooth app on your smart phone. Not sure how useful this really is since you're never going to be very far from the rocker when your baby is in it but, it's there if you need it and it works just like the big buttons do on the base of the mamaroo. The mamaroo also has built in speakers that play several built-in white noise type sounds and has an auxiliary input to play your music on the mamaroo. This is my only complaint about the mamaroo, the speaker sounds pretty bad. I get it that this is a baby swing and not a nice Bluetooth speaker but, this is an expensive baby swing. I don't really think I'd ever play music over this swing instead of using a real Bluetooth speaker. But, I don't think that's a deal breaker because, even without a speaker this is still a cool rocker. The mobile is pretty cool, my baby really likes the black and white side (it's reversible to a color side). The little plush balls do pop out pretty easy, which is good for when your baby wants to play with them but, could be easy to lose when moving it around. The mobile doesn't spin, which is also kind of lame but, baby still finds it interesting so, oh well. Overall, it's a cool fancy rocker, is it worth the premium price tag, I guess that kind of depends, are you looking for something a little better looking or with some different movement options, then maybe. But, it's always hard to tell what your baby will like.

    Love it, but pricey

    I have two young children and I'm a techy. But I even find myself amazed at all of the tech available and tailored for young children these days. While this "swing" isn't as techy as other devices (such as Bluetooth monitors or socks that measure vitals), it still packs some unnecessary frills that drive up the cost. First, the "swing" itself. I used to have a traditional Graco swing. It literally did one thing, swing back and forth. But it had a large footprint to make room for the swinging motion. One big advantage of this mamaroo is that it has a small footprint and takes up considerably less space than other, more traditional swings. Instead, it sort of "pushes" the chair up and down and slides back and forth. There are about 5 different settings ranging from car ride, to waves. I found that while the motion appeared to be smooth, it seems just slightly jerky in the movements at higher speeds. Additional features. What I like are the ambient sounds. You can connect your phone to play music or to change the motion settings, but I don't want another app on my phone that's completely unnecessary. And while you might want to play Baby Mozart for your baby through your phone, through the mamaroo speakers, that's too much effort for me. I prefer to stick with the ease of the ambient sound by pushing a button on the base. As for setup and ease of operation. It really can't get much easier. You slide the support frame bar through the base, lock it in with a tab (giving you the ability to slightly adjust the tilt/angle of the chair), and attach two other bars and then zip up the fabric for the chair and voila. NOTE: I like that the fabric zips on and off, it's easy to take off and clean. The buttons on it are pretty self explanatory. You push a button to cycle through the motion settings, the up and down arrows control the speed, and there's an up down button for volume. Really simple. Overall, this is a great motion swing. My kid loves it. I really appreciate the ease in which you put it together and how small its footprint is compared to other, more traditional swings. My only bit of caution and the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because I felt that it jerks too much at higher speeds. I only set it at speed 1 or 2 (out of 5).
