4Moms MamaRoo Review
There are hundreds of different baby swings, bouncers and jumpers on the market but there is one that stands out from the rest.
When we got our hands on the MamaRoo 4.0 we were shocked at how great it was and also how easy to use for such a high-tech piece of equipment. We just knew we have to do a 4Moms MamaRoo review!
When we found out that 4Moms as a company was only founded in 2005, we thought surely they cant know enough to create a perfect product that is better than companies that have been doing this for years and also have huge R&D departments? But we were wrong.
Being a very innovative company and even winning awards for being a great company to work for, 4Moms first product launch was in 2006 with a device that went over bath taps to display the temperature of the water coming out.
Sticking to the futuristic designs of there first releases, their latest release the bouncer, follows in its footsteps.
Very futuristic to look at, you get a high tech feel when using it. They have designed this product to mimic the feel of a parent and it bounces up and down and side to side just like you would do as a parent.
Whats in the box?
Inside the box contains the whole unit which comes already assembled.
You are able to buy a newborn insert for the MamaRoo but we found that this wasn’t really necessary as we used it from birth and had no issues.
how to set up the mamaroo
Setting up the MumaRoo took less than 5 minutes and was super quick and easy.
It does need mains connectivity to work to its full potential so make sure you are close to a wall socket, but it does mean you don’t need any batteries.
It’s easy enough to recline the positions to the one you require and even setting up the MP3 function is straightforward.
If you don’t want to use the MP3 function then you can use the build-in sounds that are activated at the touch of a button.
how long can you expect to use the MamaRoo?
You can use this MamRoo from birth, with or without the newborn insert and they propose an upper weight limit of around 11kg which equals 25lb.
The likelihood is that your baby will be sitting up by themselves before they reach 11kg so its becomes redundant before then. Despite this you still get a decent amount of time using it, which is good for the investment you make when purchasing.
How did this make your life easier?
In regards to making my life easier, the MamaRoo helped in ways where if I was exhausted or had been up all night, it took over as mum for a while so I could sit down and relax or get something done.
Because it mimics the natural movement of parents using its 5 modes which are, car ride, kangaroo, tree swing, Rockabye and Wave, you can rest assured that there will be a mode that can soothe your baby and if they are still fussing then you can take over but at least you haven’t got two dead arms and ready to drop before you get to that point!
Also, because you can strap them in and there is built-in entertainment, it keeps them busy whilst they are awake as well and helps you get things down without having to carry your baby around with you, we all know how annoying loading a washing machine is with a baby strapped to you!

reasons we love
There are so many reasons why we love this product and why you should buy it. Obviously, we can’t list them all but here are some of the main reasons:
Its unique and scientifically researched movements mimic how a parent would comfort their child and helps calm your baby. You can change the settings and make it faster or slower to suit your needs and how your baby is feeling.
Your baby will be super comfortable, obviously, we can’t ask them how comfy it was but out of all the times, my baby used it they were smiling or visibly calmer. Much like when you sit in your favorite armchair.
There are 4 built-in soothing sounds that will help your baby relax and fall asleep and if they are no good you can plug in your phone or MP3 player and play through them any sounds you wish.
Reasons we dont like
There is a reason why this MamaRoo Bouncer might not be for you.
Firstly, it’s not easy to move around the house. It needs a relatively large footprint and adds to that the need for mains power supply (albeit great for avoiding a flat battery) it really limits you to the number of areas it’s suitable for.
The MamaRoo comes with a large price tag and it can put a lot of people off buying it. If you want to save some money and don’t mind not having any automatic rocking then go for the BabyBjorn Bouncer Bliss is a cheaper but just as a high-quality bouncer.
Also, the Mamaroo only has a three point harness over the more secure 5 point which is available on most newer baby products.
