How it works
Remember those days when you used to move freely around the house and took a nap whenever you wanted? You know, back then before you had a smelly little rascal that starts crying if you leave it alone for 5 seconds to go to the toilet?
Before being a parent everybody warns you about the sleepless nights and the constant exhaustion due to sleep deprivation that slowly turns you into a walking zombie but it isn’t until you actually become one that you begin to face the harsh reality. Literally nothing can prepare you for it. It is impossible not to fall in love with an innocent little creature and in the same time it is almost impossible to stay sane while trying to manage work, keep the house in order and pay attention to your infant 24/7.
It might be because babies are truly adorable and mesmerizing that at the end of the day, every sacrifice is truly worth it, however there must be a way to find at least an hour for yourself and be able to stay functional in the midst of all emotional and physical chaos.
Many engineers, designers and pediatricians are parents themselves and have been trying to figure out a way to help other adults with children by creating many products for calming and entertaining the little ones. There are multiple beds, cradles and chairs that vibrate and swing your baby therefore it can be hard to make the right choice especially when you are not sure how your baby will respond to the motions. However, it seems like 4moms had figured it out. What you really needed all along is a product that imitate your movements while you’re away so your infant doesn’t feel lack of attention and nurture at any given moment. Meet the incredibly charming mamaRoo 4!
The swing is completed once you’ve connected the silver bars, the white base, soft seat and plush toys all together. The white stand has a big power button on it so moms can press it with their feet instead which is really more convenient especially if you experience some C-section pain from your delivery and bending seems rather uncomfortable.
The mamaRoo 4 has many versatile features and comes with 5 different swing motions and 5 speeds for the movements. It is also equipped with 4 calming sounds however if your baby finds them rather boring after a while, there is an MP3 plug in so you can play baby songs from your own personal collection and keep the baby entertained for hours and hours.
You can experience the relaxing sound of raindrops if you choose the Rain mode, or the enchanting waves sounds by picking the Ocean feature. There is also a Fan mode since we all know how comforting can white noises be as well as a Heart feature that has emotional heartbeat patterns so the baby can feel if it is sleeping on mommy’s chests. These type of nature melodies are actually recommended by pediatricians and early child development psychologists since they provide a safe environment for a pacifying nap instead of complex and noisy songs that might disturb your little one.
Even the swaddling motions have been incorporated through detailed research and thorough testing in order to find the most calming movements that will not scare or make the baby feel dizzy. There is a Car Ride option because toddlers enjoy when they are being driven and fall asleep almost immediately. A Kangaroo motion is included since baby kangaroos and inseparable with their mommies and love the joyful bouncing while they are inside their mother’s pouch. A good old Tree Swing mode never gets out of fashion and swings will always be enchanting for children. There is also a Rock a Bye movement since rocking always comforts babies while they’re crying as well as a Wave mode because we all know how lovely it is to be floating on the ocean waves.
It is compatible with the most recent Apple products that are not iPhone 4s which work with iOS 9 or the newer versions. If you are an Android owner, you can use it with almost any Android device that has works with Bluetooth Low energy and operates with Android 4.3 or its newer versions. This is very important because even though the product has many different features, babies might still want to be comforted with their favorite sounds, for example the famous baby shark song that seems to be everywhere and now you can play it on this whimsical moving object.
It is also very fun to observe children playing with the colorful little plush toys that hang above their little heads. Each of the 3 oval shaped toys has a different interactive purpose which the baby can discover while gently swaddling in the mamaRoo 4. While being customized with fashionable patterns in different colors, the reversible balls come equipped as a rattle, a mirror and a crinkle which are known to mesmerize children in the first months of their lives.
The material of the seat is machine washable so you can easily clean it in case your baby accidentally throws up or experience a diaper leak. It is quite reassuring that you can easily clean and maintain this product since you can take out the fabric and put it in the washing machine, while clean the base and the surrounding stand with a towel. The electronic components are long lasting and durable so you even after you baby outgrows the mamaRoo 4, you can store it somewhere safe and it will be good to go for the next addition to your family.
The only downside however is that in case there is some potential damage and some of the smaller parts need to replaced, the company doesn’t sell them separately, as instead you will have to buy the whole base stand which is pretty expensive unlike a small component replacement. However, if you use it properly and keep it in good condition, you will have a product you can use for many babies to come without any need for repair or replacement.
It is quite frustrating that many of the baby products can be used for a brief period of time since babies seem to grow up in an instance, however when the design is well thought of, you can borrow this wonderful swing to your friends and relatives and bring joy and comfort to another gentle being.
Moreover, the beauty of products of these kind is that parents can get rest without guilt tripping themselves because the baby will most likely be enjoy the wonderful swaying motion that it won’t even notice your absence. If you can purchase that kind of state of mind with an electronic swing, then it’s probably the best investment you will ever make. It doesn’t require any further expenses and it is quite convenient that it charges through an AC power adapter since you won’t have to buy a regular supply of batteries in order to bring the swing to life.
When you’ve just welcomed a baby to this world you need to buy a baby crib, a baby chair and table for feeding, a stroller, baby car seat etc. Yes, parenthood quickly becomes financially draining however feeling mentally drained due to not having some time for yourself is even worse.
That is why products like mamaRoo 4 are undeniably lifesaving when It comes to finding time to read a book or check your emails while having a cup of tea. The baby needs its rest and you deserve a peace of mind, so investing in a swing that comforts and entertains your child is truly priceless.
