Please note that there is a newer 2011 model - *make sure you are getting the 2011 model* (see how to determine below)
> requires less space than traditional swings
> doesn't require batteries
> contemporary 'hi tech' design aesthetic
> available in pleasing non-bright/playroom colors
> aluminum framing is nicely designed and easy to assemble
> works to calm easily soothed babies - might save your sanity (if your baby like it)
> motor and gearbox is *loud* (addressed in 2011 model)
> harness clips are hidden behind fabric (to make it look nice) - but very frustrating to undo clips in this configuration. (addressed in 2011 model)
> can't recline to a completely horizontal position
> would be significantly more effective if it moved faster
> moves in only 2 axis - it doesn't rock back/forth
> small seating area (slightly larger in 2011 model)
> mobile is simple design and does not move/rotate. it's a shame that this was NOT fixed in the 2011 model.
THE 2011 UPDATES:
> new gear box - claim is half as loud as 2010 model
> easier to access buckles
> wrap around seat fabric - looks nicer, larger seating area
> reshaped base - nicer rounder design
HOW TO DETERMINE IF YOU ARE GETTING A 2011 (version 2) MAMAROO:
> sadly, there is no easy way to determine if you are ordering an older model.
> at this point in time (Feb 2011) both products are shipped in the EXACT SAME BOX and have the EXACT SAME SKU (barcode).
> your best bet is if the product is listed as a 2011 model.Read more ›
Before I had the mamaroo, I was up at 3am, holding my little sweetheart upright for 15 minutes after a nursing, squinting at my iphone screen reading all about the Tucker Wedge, homeopathic remedies....anything that might allow me to nurse my baby and put her right back down, rather than have to add 15 minutes on to every feeding. She was about 4 weeks at the time, and fed every 2-3 hours, sometimes more often. Add 15 minutes on to every session, and there is not much time left over for mama sleepy.
I had researched lots of different bassinet options before she was born and had seriously considered the hammock-style ones that are suspended either from a ceiling hook or from a base on the floor, but then the Amby got recalled, and I thought that all of them had the risk that the Amby had for the baby who is on an incline and in a thing that flexes and moves when they move in the night: the baby scooches down to the bottom. They would need to be strapped into place somehow. So I was considering the Tucker Sling.
Now, as it turns out, I already had this good looking mamaroo my mom had gotten me as a present, and I was using it in lieu of a swing/bouncy seat in the living room. We really liked the mamaroo already. It has a sleek design and we had taken to calling it Inga's spaceship. It made our living room look so much less like a daycare to have just this one contraption and not a barrage of other seats all with their irritating Twinkle Twinkle Little Star melodies and dangling plastic toys.Read more ›
The other day, out of the blue my wife bought another sleeper: Fisher-Price My Little Sweetie Deluxe Rock n' Play Lightweight Plush Sleeper. At first I was pissed at her for buying another sleeper but the Fisher-Price one freaking works. My daughter loves sleeping in it and I don't feel bad putting her in it because it just looks so damn cozy. My wife is a super green hippy that hates Fisher-Price but she loves that thing. She puts down an "organic" blanket so everything is OK. Anyways, save your money, buy the Fisher-Price one, its Big Al approved.

We liked the product but if it breaks they are not good to work with to fix! All we need is one part and they will only offer selling the entire base! Just an FYI to think about!Published 11 months ago by Ashlie
