Baby doesnt sleep but poops
We bought this for our newborn as it had good reviews but baby doesnt stay longer than 30 mins. He never slept in it either but he poops when using it. I think the motions are too strong. Product quality is good. Perhaps they could improve motions. Also, different noises available are not loud enough.
We bought this second hand because it was too expensive to buy brand new and baby can only use this for a few months. If our baby is asleep in the car when we get home we put him in the mamaroo and he continues to sleep. Apart from this baby is quite content to sit in this for about 20mins at a time and he is quite chilled. gives me the chance to eat lunch or clean up the house. We bought the newborn insert brand new and its so soft. but it was quite expensive.
The reason i didn’t give it 5 stars is because of the price.
things to improve:
- enable us to connect to the mamaroo via Bluetooth instead of the ear phone plug in. Newer mobile phones don’t come with a headphone jack anymore.

Amazing! Every parent needs one
I was given a Mamma Roo and i only regret not getting one sooner. My 13 week old spent an hour in it then slept for another hour while in it.
Normally only falls asleep in my arms.
I would recommend this to any parent
A lifesaver for any new Parents
I couldn't speak more highly of our 4moms Mama Roo it was an absolute lifesaver, giving me time to get jobs done around the house or giving me time to shower. It was also wonderful at helping to sooth my baby to sleep, she absolutely loved it. I have recommended this product to all of my friends.

I purchased a momaroo4 and set it up for our babies arrival. It worked fine when we set it up. 2 weeks later we came home with our baby and it would start and immediately stop with a flashing screen.
After trying to get a replacement from their rather rude customer service agent, we managed to get the retailer to accept a return without the box. With a 5 day old baby a trip across town is no easy feat. We were concerned about the build quality but were convinced by friends to try a replacement.
The replacement arrived today and after putti...ng this item together for a second time, the darn thing squeaks like nothing I've seen before. The noise is absolutely infuriating and obviously this one is also defective. Garbage product and terrible customer service.
Best swing ever!! Will not regret buying!!
I used a mamaroo with my 3 children for 6+ months each... it was an absolute lifesaver! It had a small footprint, love the different sounds and modes for the motion- and just an all round excellent swing! Was a little sad when I recently sold it, but my newborn/baby days are over! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great swing and some peace and quiet!! Haha

So Excited for nothing
Please read the 1-3 star review and you will find that the quality of the rocker does not last long.
Also go onto their Facebook page and you will just how many people have the same issue with the rocker. Honestly wish I did that before I bought it !
In my case I bought the rocker in advance for my little one due in June (who is still not here) no baby has even been in it and it is already not working !!! We owned the rocker for 6 weeks!
You don’t get a new one under warranty you have to ride out the warranty process for a new base or part eve...
Not worth the hype
Nice cumfy seat and design, however bubs used it once when he was a newborn and has never lasted more than a minute in it since. I think it suits babies who are less active and don't need much stimulation. The movement choices are so similar to each other so there's not much you can do to settle bubs if he doesn't like it. Your baby will either love it or hate it and it's a lot to pay if it's the latter.
We started using the Mamroo from the first week my son was born. He is now 3 months old and still loves it, he even has his bottle in there now. It has been a lifesaver when I want to quickly get something done around the house. He is usually happy to sit in there while it rocks him, and he loves checking himself out in the mirror attached to the mobile. Love that you can zip out the seat and throw it in the wash. The only thing I dislike is the fabric..things always get caught in it and pulled out a couple threads.

Totally average product for the price
I bought my Mamaroo from The Amazing Baby Company at a baby expo. Firstly, their customer service isn’t great. I was told that you can buy the product covers in ‘lots of different colours and patterns’ but you can’t get extra slips ANYWHERE in Australia at the moment. Stock has supposedly been coming in for months. As a result, I do feel I was lied to in order to make a sale.
For the product itself it is totally average which considering the price is disappointing. I thought I would love this product but I have found it the cons outweigh wha...t I like. The pros are mainly in the design - sleek and modern. The seat cocoons around the baby and the black and white mobile that can easily flip over into the colours is great. The cons .... It is very heavy and bulky - difficult to move around especially when you’re holiding a baby. For me, if didn’t work for a newborn. My daughter just looked squished and awkward because she was so little. It’s better suited to older babies who can support their neck.

Don’t get one!
This swing was great. Until it stopped working after 4 months. Then when I contacted them they told me it’s because my baby has outgrown the swing because he can roll in general, not him doing it in the swing or anything. Without even having seen him and his weight being still under the “limit”. Even though that has absolutely nothing to do with my complaint. Compete waste of money. And their customer service is atrocious!
Couldn't have lived without it
I had my eye on the mamaroo for my first baby but couldn't justify the price. When my second was due to be born just 18 months later this was the first thing i purchased, i knew id need it with a newborn and 18 month old. It lived up to all my high expectations and more. My baby was able to stay somewhere safe and happy while i chased around my toddler, she happily snoozed in full view, loved the heartbeat sounds and when she got older loved the music id attach, shed happily dance away in there while watching us.
Highly recommend, especially for siblings close together!
It's as good as me holding the baby
It has so many movement types, the baby appears to like it more than me. It was expensive compare to other rocker, but this is more than a rocker. Also, a calm baby is just priceless. Love seeing my baby enjoying a toy for more than a few days. We use it to put baby to sleep when she had a exciting day.
I love it.
It’s definitely expensive but I love it. You might take in consideration to buy it second hand if in good conditions as you can only use it for the first semester. The first few days my baby was crying when I was putting her in there but I didn’t give up and after a few tries she started to love it as well. We can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner with her very relaxed in the Mamaroo. Also, we are really happy with the app that allow you to control remotely mood and speed.

Crap, straight out of the box
I was so excited to finally get my mumaroo after a months wait but that excitement turned to utter disappointment when straight up whilst putting it together I noticed the zip was missing a zipper tooth and was jamming, what happens when the big plastic zips loose teeth, they split open, which would allow bub to fall straight through. Not only that the stitching on the plush seat was terrible, messy and the edge material had an edge sticking out that was sewn over before being tucked in? Do they not have quality control? I then thought I'd test...the base and man the static is awful, you can nearly hear it's preset noises over it then even when no sound is playing you still hear static, and a ticking sound. I tried it in another lower point thinking it might he that but nope, same issue. For a $500 unit this is just not acceptable, I feel robbed. Now I have to pay postage to send it back to the company I bought it from to get a refund, far from happy.
Awesome chair to help mums get a few minutes
- you can put them in from birth which is helpful if you need a minute to shower or go to the bathroom
- Bub was really fond of the mobile especially with its different patterns
- very durable because of the hard shell seat
- the rocking did put him to sleep a few times
- reasonably transportable within the house (the Base is a bit heavy) for when you need to put it in the bathroom while mum takes a shower
- it helped having a seat Bub could sit in while we ate dinner next to him and he could see us
- it's expensive for the function.. ...
Okay but not great
This has quiet and lovely flowing movements unlike some of its jerky and noisy competitors. It looks really impressive. For our family it was far more appealing to the adults than our baby. You either have a baby who loves this kind of thing or you don't and mine was the latter kind so it was a costly exercise!
Questions & Answers
Is Mamaroo portable cot meets Australian standard?
I have a $99 portable cot, as i am a family day care educator i have to meet the regulation of Australian standard. Please advise me by email.
My mamaroo has started vibrating when it moves. Previously it used to move very smoothly. Has anyone else experienced this problem and who did you contact about it? The 4moms support email only seems to be US and Canada based? What about Aus? Any advice would be helpful, thanks in advance x
The egg shaped seat on my mamaroo appears loose and moves back and forth very freely when I place my baby in it. I found a small nut that had fallen off of something, appearantly in the large white base that moves. is the base hard to disassemble so I can see where this nut came from. also it made a poping sound previous to this when I picked it up to move it to my bedroom. Any ideas ?
