I have been a huge fan of the mamaRoo from the time Aden was born. Although lots of friends and family prejudged it as a 'roller coaster-like' contraption for babies when seeing it on the registry, I insisted on it because I knew that anything that had a 'car ride' setting with white noise (and saved me the trouble of actually taking the awful pre-nap car ride) was a gift sent from above. I had been around enough babies to know of the struggle and I was going to do what I could to lessen it. Aden was a fan of his mamaRoo immediately. As a first time mom, I relied heavily on the mamaRoo to get a shower mid-afternoon or to fold a load of laundry in peace.... with both hands.
Now that I'm a mom of two, I can't even begin to tell you what it has done for me. Maybe even saved my sanity at times. In the first few weeks home from the hospital with Hudson, I often worried that Aden would feel left out. With the 4moms mamaRoo I'm able to take care of both my boys. it's like having a second set of hands and I'm able to give my oldest some quality one on one time that I didn't think I'd have.
As much as I loved the original mamaRoo, I was thrilled to get my hands on the newly updated mamaRoo (2015) with... wait for it.... bluetooth and app! The 4moms team must have just known that I would need an app with 2 kids! With the app, you can control the settings of the mamaRoo via bluetooth from anywhere in the house. Yep! Can you say genius? THANK YOU, 4moms! They have made it incredibly simple to manage the speed, sounds, and ride settings right from your iPhone. As if I didn't love them already!
There have been plenty of times I have ended up in a struggle at nap time between Aden + Hudson. Aden naps in his room and in the afternoon, Hudson naps in his mamaRoo. Hudson is very particular on his settings, so it's been a dream to control it as he dozes off all the while getting my 16 month old down simultaneously. I'm all about multi-tasking and with the app, I pretty much kill it.
Besides my love affair with the app, the mamaRoo is also one of Hudson's favorite things. As an infant Hudson needed constant motion. If I wasn't holding and rocking him in my arms, the mamaRoo was the second best thing. He loved the Car Ride setting on full blast and the "fan" white noise as loud as it could go. Now that he's a bit older, he's so content just staring up at the little mobile and having afternoon chats with it as it spins above him. I happen to love it's colorful modern prints. That's the thing about the mamaRoo... Its state of the art, sleek design works perfectly in with the rest of my decor. It's not an eye sore like other baby products that just scream, "there's a baby that lives here!" to all of your guests. I don't mind leaving it out!
