mamaRoo Giveaway and Why I Love our mamaRoo!

When I was pregnant, my friends told me that to be able to do the household chores and to enjoy some relaxing time I need a good baby bouncer. With this information, I started my search for the perfect baby bouncer for a design-savvy mom. There are a few baby products that will always be at sight in your home. A baby bouncer is one of those. For that reason, I was on a mission to find a great looking baby bouncer that my baby would enjoy.

I created a short list of baby bouncers and loungers. The contenders were: the mamaRoo by 4moms, the BABYBJÖRN Babysitter Balance, and the Coco Bloom. I did not really care for the look of the BABYBJÖRN Babysitter Balance. The Coco Bloom was too heavy. The decisive factor was that I felt that a motion-assisted bouncer would work better with a baby. After further analysis, I found that the mamaRoo delivers the features I was looking for: 5 motions, variable speeds, the ability to play nature sounds or music from my iPod/iPhone (I did not wish to get tired of hearing the same songs over and over) and a small mobile to further entertain my baby.

But the real test is how does my baby feel about it. In 3 words: he loves it! My husband and I often raved about it. For one thing, having the mamaRoo enables us to take a good dinner every night since we have our son. This is a huge plus since dinners are our only decent and relaxing meals these days.

I wish to point out that I received my mamaRoo for FREE from 4moms. If we are friend on Facebook, you might have noticed a couple pictures of my son sitting in the mamaRoo.
