Parents don't vibrate like bouncy seats or swing like swings. They bounce and sway, and that's what the mamaRoo does: it moves like you do. Our team used motion sensors to measure the movements of reals moms and dads as they soothed their babies, and replicated those motions in the mamaRoo. It's the only infant seat with five different motions, all modeled after the natural movements parents make to comfort their babies. It isn't just another infant seat. It's our baby, and we made it for yours.
The mamaRoo plush is the same great mamaRoo with a softer, plush seat fabric that's even more comfortable for your baby. Just like the classic, the plush seat is machine washable and easy to zip in and out of your mamaRoo.

We highly recommend the mamaroo. It's operation is quiet and offers an array of sounds and motions to soothe the baby.
Easy to assemble. Quality product.

We absolutely love the mamaRoo!! Our son is almost 2 months old now and we have used the mamaRoo everyday since we brought him home. It's the first thing that we were able to actually set him down in without him crying. When he was a newborn he would only sleep if he was held or in the mamaRoo - a lifesaver for tired parents. Now that he's a little older, we still use the mamaRoo at least 2-3 times/day when he won't fall asleep in his crib or to entertain him while mom gets ready.
We use the sounds on the mamaRoo and vary the movements. Our little guy (11lbs) just graduated from the infant insert (which was a MUST HAVE for a newborn).
This is a fantastic product and I highly recommend it!

I hesitated when initially buying this because it was so pricey, but I loved everything about it - the different motions, the mp3 hook-up, the fact that it plugs in instead of batteries. (The plug-in was a major selling point for me.) Now that my son has arrived, he spends a large portion of the day quietly sleeping in the mamaroo. He loves it and I love that he loves it!
I worried that the noise of the motor running would be too obnoxious on the higher speed settings, but it's a non-issue. The various motions and speeds allow me to find what is JUST RIGHT for our baby. I do wish it could accommodate a larger child, but seeing as my 2 year old is only 27 lbs I'm sure we'll get plenty of use out of it. My only other complaint is that the infant insert is sold separately at a very high price. We use an infant support from an old car-seat instead.
Overall, fabulous product.

We were excited to purchase the mamaroo for our baby even though it is expensive.
It looked like the best option for us, after a lot of looking around and weighing the pros and cons: doesnt take up a lot of space, can plug in an MP3 player so you're not limited to a few sounds and it's sleek design - cons: very expensive for a swing that baby would be using for a few months.
A few days ago it began to vibrate to the point where baby was shaking while moving around in it! It's only been two months!! I have left several messages with the manufacturer's answering service (a bit disconcerting that you cannot get an actual person at the other end!) and I haven't had a call back!
All we want to do is return the one we have for another (that hopefully wont vibrate!).

the baby hasn't been born yet to use it, but I still felt compelled to write a review because it was so simple to put together! All products should be this user friendly and still feel so well made!

My 2 month old daughter loves the mamaroo! I wish they made this for adults...I love the 4moms products. We have the stroller and I cant go anywhere without being asked about it. My only thought would be to somehow make the movements more fluid. My daughter almost looks like she is vibrating

The mamaRoo is everything it is advertised to be. The portability is fantastic. Grandparents live 400 miles away. In about 5 minutes I can have the mamaRoo disassembled and in the original box to take with us. It is so compact that it does not take up much room in the car. Overall it is a fantastic piece of baby caring equipment! I do have a couple of suggestions, however. 1) I echo the "need a bigger one" suggestion. It saddens me to think about the day our baby outgrows it. 2) Make a control to use the sound without the motion. Thank you for making the mamaRoo. We went through two other swings before we found this beauty.

I bought the mommaroo for my first child a couple years ago. She suffered from Colic, acid reflux and RSV at the same time so this was a life saver. I now have a 6 month old son and he just can't stand it. When he was first brought home it was ok, but by the time he was 2 months old he wasn't having it. He prefers the back and forth motion over the side to side and the only way to recline it to a full sleep position was to disconnect the safety seat belt harness thing and I just didn't like that. We are now getting rid of our mommaroo since he just plain won't use it at all. The only thing he did like about it was the ocean waves sound, but I found an itunes song for my iphone and just play that for him in his regular baby swing. I also wish the new seat covers would fit properly on the older model mommaroo's. The new ones have different snaps on the top and bottom that don't work with my model. I also agree that I wish it would support more than 25 pounds as my 6 month old is already 20lbs. I hope others find this helpful.

I have a 4 month old and she has outgrown the mamaRoo, but having it for the first 3 months was totally worth the cost. She slept in it better than anything else and slept in it exclusively from 6 weeks to 3 months. It saved us when nothing else worked. She also transitioned out of it into her crib very easily because we could keep the noise on but not the motion first then moved her from it but left the noise on. It was fantastic! I only wish it had a remote control because the controls were sometimes challenging to use when holding her.
