Playtime with mamaRoo Baby Swing

By August 9, 2016The Brothers May

Have I mentioned how awesome this blogger gig can be sometimes? This 4Moms mamaRoo baby swing showed up on my doorstep last week and while my kids have not needed a swing for several months now, I couldn’t help but pull it out and show Teller and Nixon what the mamaRoo baby swing is all about. I went back and forth on whether or not to share it on the blog (you know, the blog with mainly a focus on home stuff?) but ya know what, it feels a little silly to ignore the very biggest and best part of my life on what is essentially my online life journal. So here we go. (Don’t worry, I won’t go all mommy on you all the time.)

We actually had a hand-me-down mamaRoo baby swing when they were younger, and while I know they don’t remember it, they sure were like moths to flame when I pulled the new one out of the box. I think it had something to do with those fun-colored “eggs” on the mobile. 😉

I showed the boys how it worked by using a stuffed animal and they were so, SO intrigued. This little playtime reminded me how much I loved this swing when we were using it constantly—it’s just soothing. The sound effects, the whirrrr of the machine and the softness of the fabric. It reminded me of those quiet mornings when they were babies. It also reminds me of lugging it and a second swing all over the house (don’t worry, the mamaRoo is super light) so that I could take a shower or fold laundry. It really made those first few months “doable” in a lot of ways.

It was just a matter of minutes before Nixon wanted to climb in and try it out—and so we did! He’s still well within the weight requirements (it maxes out at 25 lbs) so it swung him with ease. I put it on “car” mode (#4!), which mimics the movement of traveling car and I had to laugh because he instantly relaxed. Both of my kids have what I like to call “car-colepsy” which essentially ensures full, deep sleep within the first 3 minutes of the car moving.

Also the paci—oh boy. My kids the first entire 14 months of life were not at all interested in pacifiers, but teething has turned them into full-blown paci fanatics. I need to muster up the courage to start to wean them off and am not looking forward to it!

I love this sweet, sensitive soul so much. My goodness this child (and his brother!) have my heart. Look how chill Nixon is in the mamaRoo baby swing… loving it!

The newest model of the MamaRoo is much fancier than what I was used to, with its digital interface and smartphone app. We all had fun pressing the buttons, playing music and watching the seat swing side to side.

The secret of the mamaRoo baby swing is that its range of movements are designed to mimic familiar ones—in my arms, in my car, etc. Here’s a fun little video we did to show you just that.

Who else is in love with this swing? It’s expensive, so I’d recommend borrowing a friend’s to see if your baby is up for this type of swinging. If he/she loves it, then go for it, but definitely take it for a test drive first!

Thanks 4Moms and mamaRoo for fun playtime and a great mail day!
