As a new parent, there are many things you will need to take care of your child. There are the essentials to keep your baby healthy, but there are also things to make the parent’s life much more manageable.

One of these products is a baby swing, a convenient device that babies can sit in, swing, and rock back and forth, or calm a baby and get them to sleep.

Even if your baby doesn’t want to sleep at the moment, a baby swing is still an excellent way to keep your baby occupied while you take care of chores around the house.

That said, finding a good baby swing for a reasonable price is not easy, especially if you want a modern and high-tech model with advanced features. However, there are some excellent choices, and this article looks at a baby swing with great features, functionality, and more.

This is a baby swing that incorporates the essential elements that you are used to, along with more high-tech features, such as remote control via smartphone and more.

With the MamaRoo app, you can use your smartphone to control the swing from afar. This is nothing more than good old-school craftsmanship combined with new-age innovation.

What’s Included?

When you purchase the 4moms MamaRoo Baby Swing, you get a baby swing that measures  19.5 x 33 x 25.5” and weighs about 19 pounds. It features a wide base, excellent cushioning, and has some cool toys too.

You also get an MP3 plug and speakers, a user-friendly control panel, and a small mobile. While the 4moms MamaRoo Baby Swing may look like something out of a sci-fi movie, it’s one of the best baby swings we have seen.

Overview of Features

One thing that stands out about the 4moms MamaRoo Baby Swing is how comfortable it appears for babies. This unit’s unique rounded design provides excellent head and neck support, which is very important for newborns and young babies. It has soft and supportive padding that really snuggles your baby.

Moreover, this padding is removable and washable, which is vital. When your child inevitably has an accident or makes a mess, you can just pop the cover in the washer.

On a side note, to help keep your baby safe as it enjoys the rocking and bouncing, the 4moms MamaRoo Baby Swing features a simple yet effective harness. It’s easy for parents to secure and undo, yet it works wonders keeping your baby safe and in place.

The seat of the 4moms MamaRoo Baby Swing has a reclining feature, so you can have it in the seated position for those times when your baby wants to play and have fun. You can also put it in the reclined position when it’s time for rest, or just if your baby likes it more that way.

Next, the 4moms MamaRoo Baby Swing allows you to connect your smartphone or tablet to it via the MamaRoo app. This app can be used to control the swing from a distance. The swing connects to your phone via Bluetooth.

Keep in mind that the 4moms MamaRoo Baby Swing has an easy-to-use and read onboard control panel, so you don’t have to use your phone as a remote if you don’t want to.

Using your smartphone, you can then control the motion of the 4moms MamaRoo Baby Swing. It comes with five possible motions, including car ride, kangaroo, tree swing, rock a bye, and wave.

Even better is that it has five speeds to choose from. If you want your baby to have fun, set it on kangaroo at high speed, and if you want some peace and quiet, the rock-a-bye mode at a low speed is ideal.

The 4moms MamaRoo Baby Swing can also make a variety of soothing sounds to calm your baby, and you can control them with your phone. Even better is that this unit comes with a music MP3 plug, so you can play music from devices; the speakers are actually good enough for this.

This is an electric baby swing that requires the included AC adaptor to function. If you lose it, you will need to replace it, and unfortunately, this baby swing doesn’t operate on battery power.

The other thing worth mentioning about the 4moms MamaRoo Baby Swing is that it comes with a hanging mobile that is interactive and contains three pieces, a rattle, mirror, and crinkle ball. Babies can have hours of fun with these toys.

Tutorial

You will need to assemble the 4moms MamaRoo Baby Swing, which can be a bit of a challenge. This is a tutorial video on how to assemble and disassemble the unit.

We also have a video that demonstrates how to use this swing. Besides that, we are sure that we don’t need to tell you to ensure that your baby is securely strapped in before you start up the swing.

Alternatives

There’s no denying that the 4moms MamaRoo Baby Swing is expensive, maybe too expensive for some. If this is the case, you may want to look into the 4moms RockaRoo Compact Baby Swing.

This option is substantially less expensive than the product reviewed today and more compact, too, but that said, it does have fewer features.

If you would prefer a basic rocker, something to help get your baby to sleep, but also won’t cost a small fortune, the Maxi-Cosi Kori Rocker could be right for you.

It has motions that are fun and stimulating, as well as those that are soothing and relaxing. It’s easy to control, it’s technologically advanced, and it looks nice. However, it is quite an investment, so keep the cost in mind.
