One word: Amazing!
When our oldest was born, we used one of the cheap bouncers and bounced her in it ALL-THE-TIME. She would only nap in there and no where else, so bouncing it was. I said over and over I need to invent something that makes it bounce itself… Well let’s just say I wish I had…
Once she had out grown her bouncer I came accross the amazing Mamaroo. Way to expensive for my liking, but so worth it! So when I found one on sale after we had our second, I bought it. He enjoyed it so much, and we did too! So when I found another one on sale I bought it for my sister as she was expecting my niece at the time.
You can use it until they are about 6 months, and let’s be honest that’s usually when they only wanna roll and/or sit up anyways. It is able to be put in different reclining positions, laying down and eventually sitting up. Then there are 5 different motions to it and 5 speeds. You can even hook your phone up to it. Now in the newest version, it connects by bluetooth so you can manage it from your phone!!!! As you can tell I have the older version… Still amazing though.
Our middle one loved it and slept in it occasionally, but mainly laid in it when I would cook and/or just needed to put him somewhere to attend to the oldest one. He outgrew it way too quickly. Our youngest loves it, she is not much of a napper (like her sister) and so she falls asleep in that more often than in her crib during the day.
So the pros and cons:
- perfect for every age
- reclining seat
- bluetooth option (in new models)
- enough motion options to fit baby’s mood
- great solution for when they are tired/fussy and need to sooth them.
- Washable material
- does not make too much sound
- has entertaining plush toy balls
- has an option for a newborn insert ( I never needed one)
- I honestly can not think of one….
