I think that one thing about preparing for a new baby that is fun is trying out items that you will be using for the new baby. I love trying out products that are new to me, products that I did not have when I had my previous two babies. It seems as though every time I go looking for new items for a baby, I find items that I wish I had had before. Well this time around I am getting those items that I wish I had for my older kids when they were babies. I think another fun thing about getting and trying new baby items is sharing them with friends. Recently I was sent a mamaRoo plush from 4moms to review. This is one of those items that is so cool, one that you have to share with other moms. Last week when I got together with my moms group, we decided to put together the mamaRoo and play with it a little. We also had one little one who got very comfortable trying out the mamaRoo. Sure it comes in several pieces, but I found the mamaRoo plush to be one of the easiest baby products I have ever had to put together. It only took about 5 minutes to put it together.
Once the mamaRoo was together, we started to go over the features. Everyone agreed that this is the mama of baby swings. Not only does it go side to side, but it can go around in circles, it does this nifty up and down motion called the KangaRoo, it has a motion that is similar to taking baby on a car ride called the Car Ride. I mean, the swings that I have had in the past were no where near this cool. I liked that a few of the moms that came last week actually had or used the mamaRoo with their babies, so they were able to give a lot of insight on their experiences and thoughts as well. Everything they had to say was positive, which just makes me and the other moms more comfortable using the mamaRoo. I actually found it very interesting that with two of the moms, one had got one for her newborn then the other ordered one right after seeing one in action, and they both say that they would suggest anyone who is pregnant or has a baby to get one.
On top of all of the amazing motions that the mamaRoo does, you also have the place to hook up your MP3 player to. So, you can choose the music for the mamaRoo to play for your baby. The mamaRoo plush’s seat reclines to any position along its axis, and the fabric is easily removed and is machine washable. I love that the whole concept behind the mamaRoo is it moves like you do, so it is easier to comfort your baby. I also love the mobile that is on the mamaRoo. It is not your everyday mobile, it is colorful and the mobiles speed is controlled by mom!!! You can choose to set it to go fast for playtime or slow for quiet time. In all I have been very impressed by the mamaRoo plush both by seeing it in action for myself, and from the reviews I got from friends who love their own mamaRoo’s. I am excited to use it with the new baby, and the wonderful people from 4moms would like to get my readers excited about the mamaRoo plush too, by giving one of my amazing readers their own mamaRoo plush!!!!!!
