Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

mamaRoo giveaway

If you have a baby, you almost certainly also have a bouncer, a swing, or both. But you also know that neither can really compare to the soothing motion a baby feels when you are comforting him or her in your arms. That's why we love the mamaRoo by 4moms! It's designed to move like you do.

You can choose from five different motions that all mimic natural parental movements, as well as five different speeds to best suit your little one. The seat is also adjustable and machine washable. If the soothing motion of the mamaRoo isn't enough, it also has built-in nature sounds, a simple mp3 hookup, and reversible toy balls with both black and white and color images that hang above. Not only does it function well, but it's also beautifully designed. The mamaRoo is a lot more attractive in your living room than your typical swing or bouncer.

4moms provided one for us to try, and we are smitten! My daughter was already two-months-old and loved her bouncer when we first tried it, so I was admittedly a little unsure of how she'd react to the mamaRoo. But within the first minute of using it, I knew it was a keeper! The motion is smooth, quiet, and gentle. Gracie is happy to chill out there both when she's awake and alert, and also when she's ready for a nap. A few minutes on the KangaRoo setting with the white noise option on and she's out like a light.
