When Only Mom Will Do: mamaRoo by 4Moms

When Only Mom Will Do - Mamaroo
There are two types of parents who are curious about the mamaRoo by 4moms.

  1. New Parents. You’re expecting your first child and have seen the mamaRoo lined up next to various types of baby swings while completing your registry. It seems expensive and you’re trying to convince yourself that you really need it.
  2. Experienced Parents. Maybe you’re expecting your 2nd or 3rd child. You by-passed the mamaRoo the first time around (or it didn’t exist yet) because it didn’t fit into your budget. But, after struggling with a baby that didn’t know their night from day, or a colicky baby, or a baby that wouldn’t stop crying unless she was in mom or dad’s arms, you’re thinking that maybe a mamaRoo is necessary this time.

While many adventures need nothing more than a good imagination, we’d be lying if we told you that our backyards are free of a few simple items.

Gear Guide: Doona by Simple Parenting – The Next Generation Car Seat

Your baby is naturally most comfortable in your arms. In fact, they may be so comfortable, that you find that the only way you can get anything done is by “wearing” your baby. However, doctors typically recommend that babies sleep lying flat on their back, to allow baby’s body to freely move; and encourage bone and muscle development. Furthermore, if you’re driving (or even just riding in the car), it just isn’t safe or legal to baby-wear. 

So, you buy an infant car seat to safely secure and restrain your baby while in transit. Then, you buy a stroller because who really wants to lug that car seat around whenever you get to your destination. But what if you could buy one piece of baby gear that offers a safe, practical and comfortable solution for carrying your baby inside and outside of the car? Doona was designed to do just that! 

Is it a car seat? Is it a stroller? It’s both! Doona is the world’s first infant car seat with a complete and fully integrated mobility solution designed for infants 4-34 lbs.
