MamaRoo Review and Giveaway!

As the birth of Deborah grew closer I realized that I needed to purchase a new bouncy seat. After having four children our previous bouncy seat had finally seen it's last days.

I saw the mamaRoo being reviewed on different blogs and it interested me. I was thrilled when I was sent one to review, and even more excited when the company agreed to give one away to one of you!

The mamaRoo was designed two mimic a parent naturally swaying and bouncing their baby. This unique seat sways from side to side and up and down in five different motion settings.

The seat comes with different sounds you can turn on for your baby, but what is really neat is the option to plug in your mp3 player and play your own music for the baby!

When the mamaRoo came we found it packaged extremely well.

Here are all the parts taken out of the box. 

My husband assembled it in little time and found it very easy to do. 

I choose the plush silver fireworks pattern as the plush version unzips and can be washed. With as much as babies spit up I thought that would be wonderful to be able to throw the main part of the seat in the wash! 

Here is a video explaining more about the mamaRoo

This is Deborah in the mamaRoo seat! 

We have this in the dining room to use while I'm cooking dinner. We've been given a baby who wants to be held more than anything else, so the seat and our swing we have has not been used that much. She did fall asleep once in this, and that was nice. Now that she is just over a month old she is starting to look at the mobile more. 

 A few minor negatives you might want to be aware of are the plush mobile has (what we would call) scary creatures on it, and the soothing nature sounds are while perhaps soothing to the baby are not quite so soothing to the parents (they are low quality). 

Overall I think the mamaRoo is a neat design, we just haven't been able to use it as much as I had hoped due to our baby wanting held a lot. On the plus side of this seat, it is very well designed and is made out of high quality materials. You can tell they put a lot of thought into every detail of this product.

I love the blue clouds pattern for the seat. But my personal favorite color is red... in case that was what you were asking for. ;)

I just found out today that our pastor's daughter is pregnant with her 5th child, this would be wonderful for her to free up her hands while she homeschools 3 and chases after her toddler :)
