The single most important thing that your newborn needs in the first few weeks of life, aside from being fed and changed, is to be soothed.
Soothed, soothed, soothed.
The MamaRoo from 4Moms goes above and beyond what your average swing or bouncer can do, by truly simulating the comforting motion of a mother’s gentle sway. If you aren’t familiar with this product, let me tell you, it can work wonders for fussy babies!
We’ve never seen a parent vibrate their child like a bouncy seat and hardly seen one swing a baby around like a swing. BUT, we’ve seen thousands of parents scoop their little ones up in their arms and bounce and sway. And that’s what the mamaRoo does. It moves like you do. (from mamaRoo.com)
See the MamaRoo in action:
The MamaRoo provides 5 unique motions, a variety of accompanying sounds, and even offers a dock that will work with any MP3 player if you would like to provide your own music or white noise.
What I love most about the MamaRoo, aside from it’s obvious aesthetic appeal (hello, no cartoon characters!), is the gentle way in which it not only puts my baby at ease and helps her rest, but also cradles her body, and provides movement that to me, seems safer and more secure than some of the swings I have seen.
We have been battling colic for weeks now, and Kara’s time spent in the MamaRoo often gives a desperately needed break from the screaming.
