MamaRoo Review and Giveaway!

If the Jetsons ever showed Elroy as a baby, he would have been cradled in the mamaRoo. This amazing baby seat is futuristic in both its movement and construction. When I unpacked it from the box, I thought, oh no, this will be another over-sized piece of unusable baby gear. But it wasn't. In fact, its the opposite.

As I mentioned before, the mamaRoo is really well made. It is sturdy and the movement is very fluid. I was pleasantly surprised! When we put the baby in it, he lay back with a look on his face that said, "impress me, mere mortals". We tried out each of the five settings: Car Ride, KangaRoo, Tree Swing, Rock-a-Bye and Ocean Wave. Our baby's favorite setting was the Car Ride. Not surprising when considering he spends many of his waking, er, sleeping hours in the car! If you have a fickle baby, you can adjust the speed within each setting as well. Our baby liked the slower speed when he was dozing off. And he liked the faster speed when he was in more of a "let me get fresh and grab these little globe things from the mobile" mood. That's another cool feature - the bright, happy mobile balls are detachable for all those grabby babies out there, like ours.

Another big plus is that we were able to connect our iPod with the mp3 player dock to play the baby's favorite German lullibies. Or mom's favorite books on tape. What? Who says I shouldn't be finding the path to enlightenment or learning Italian while the baby is relaxing in the mamaRoo? If your baby enjoys white noise, the mamaRoo comes equipped with five different nature sounds to soothe your crankypants.



Finally, if your baby is a little chubbo like ours, he can hang out in the mamaRoo until he's 25 lbs.  This is particularly refreshing for a mom whose swing and jumper maxed out at 18 lbs!


Buy It!
You can find the mamaRoo in six different colors online and at national and local stores for about $200.   

Win It!
Excited yet? You can win a mamaRoo of your very own and give Mama's arms a rest for a chance!

  66. I love the orange/charcoal! We're expecting our first in April, and it's the first thing we added to our registry! (We wanted to start with something fun, then add all the other stuff like diapers and onsies.) We don't know if we're having a boy or a girl yet, but the orange is perfect either way! Thanks for posting about the MamaRoo - it's great to see a real person's review and I'm glad to hear it's as great in real life as it looks like it would be on the internet!
