I've had my eye on the MamaRoo since I found out I was pregnant. It was on our registry, but unfortunately we didn't receive it as a gift. While it looked amazing, we just couldn't justify spending over $200 on it.
At around 5 weeks old, our baby girl wasn't sleeping well at night, and we were willing to try anything! I found someone selling their MamaRoo for $100! It was a steal!
It was completely easy to set-up, and the controls are self-explanatory. The different movements and sounds give us a good variety too. My only complaints would be the fact that we can't dim the control screen. In the middle of the night, it's pretty bright and we usually have to put something on it to drown out the light. I would also love if the mobile would spin on its own. My baby loves when we make it spin!
Our baby girl only likes it some of the time, but she has definitely slept 3hrs in it before, and that in itself is worth every dollar! We are hoping that she starts to enjoy it more as she gets older.
Did you baby like the MamaRoo? Let me know!
