The Coolest Baby Product of 2010…The mamaRoo!!!

IMG_0682I just received our mamaRoo, made by 4moms. I have been anxiously awaiting it’s arrival for weeks, and it was worth it. Last night when my 3 week old was up from 4am to 6am, I kept thinking, when is my mamaRoo going to arrive. HOORAY!!IMG_0681

This is the COOLEST most AMAZING product I have ever seen for babies. It’s not a swing or a bouncer, it is a futuristic “baby spacecraft” that moves like mom. It has 5 unique motions: car ride, kangaroo, tree swing, rock-a bye, and ocean wave. Our daughter loves the car ride, and I love not actually having to be out in the middle of the night driving around a colicky baby. Each motion can be adjusted to the right speed for your baby. The mamaRoo also comes with 5 sounds of nature, but what I love most is that you can connect your MP3 player to it .

If exposing baby to wonderful music isn’t enough, the mamaRoo also comes with Plush toy balls decorated in the style of Van Gogh, Monet, and Seurat. Black and white on one side for infants. Color on the other side for older babies. They easily pop in and out of the mobile so babies can chew and or study them.

This is a must have for every new parent. It’s worth the splurge at $200. It is a reasonable price considering you can take that swing and bouncer off your registry.

The Infant Tub of All Infant Tubs

With baby # 2 expected this April, I have been on a quest to find the latest and greatest of baby gear, that wasn’t around a few years ago when our son was born. My nesting instinct has kicked in, and last weekend, while cleaning out our basement, I came across our old mediocre infant tub, that was all dirty and worn. I added infant tub to my list of must haves for our new bundle of joy.

Boy was I surprised how the infant tub has changed! There are Spa Tubs, Euro Tubs, Foam Tubs, etc etc. The tub that caught my eye as the Tub of all Tubs is The Cleanwater Infant Tub by 4Moms. Their slogan is “if you spent a day in diapers, you’d want one too.” Brilliant!

The Cleanwater Infant Tub comes equip with a built in thermometer, rinse cup and clean water reservoir. There is hole in the side of the tub, so that cold, dirty water can drain out, while clean and perfectly warm water can flow in.

The tub is suitable for up to 25 lbs or babies up to 6 months old. Once a baby can sit up, this tub has run its course. It fits in single and double basin sinks.

We had Susan from Baby Bodyguards, try it out with her 3 month old, and she said it was “so cool and easy to use” , she really liked the built in thermometer feature.

The Cleanwater Infant Tub is available at stores like  Babies R Us, Target, as well as smaller specialty stores. You can enter your zip code on the site and it will tell you the store nearest you. The tub retails for about $40.
