Everyone wants to keep their baby calm and happy. Many parents spend countless nights walking around and rocking their baby in order to soothe them. Well, the brilliant minds at 4moms created the Mamaroo to help give parents a much deserved break.

The Mamaroo mimics common motions that a parent would use to soothe a baby, including: a car ride, tree swing, wave, rock a bye baby, and kangaroo. The seat is machine washable and easy to clean. The Mamaroo is also bluetooth capable so that any parent can control the motions and sounds that the Mamaroo makes. Although it is a little expensive, it is worth it.
