My personal experience with swings amounts to this: you get a swing, you spend half a day assembling it, and then your baby refuses to sit in it. Most of the time I tell expectant parents not to register for one – some babies like them and some don’t. If you’ve got a baby who needs a swing, you’ll know it pretty quickly from your aching arms and shoulders.
Actually, most babies like being held, right? So what new parents really need isn’t a swing – it’s a family member, permanently installed in the kitchen, always willing to hold the baby. And essentially, that’s the mamaRoo. There are five different motion settings, each developed based on the soothing movements mothers make when holding their babies. Each motion can be speed-adjusted, too. The mamaRoo plays white noise or five different pre-set nature sounds, or you can plug in any mp3 player to add music to the ride.
So say sayonara to your swing and bye-bye to your bouncy seat. Meet mamaRoo and you’ll never go back.
Parenthetically, while I haven’t heard of any downsides from parents actually using the mamaRoo, my toddler son is both fascinated with and a little bit terrified of the rollicking floor model in our store. So if you have a toddler-age older sibling in the house, introduce it slowly.
