Magnus loved his mamaRoo from the very beginning, and I use it mostly at meal times when I have to cook and clean and feed Johannes or hurry him out the front door. But this past week, with me headed back to work I found myself relying on the mamaRoo even more so than before. I wish I had 4 hands, 2 to hold my baby, and 2 to make breakfast and help Johannes get dressed. But I don’t. And Magnus is just as happy being swayed from side to side or sometimes just sitting there observing all of the commotion of the morning.
The biggest difference in the new mamaRoo is the bluetooth and the iTunes app! I usually put the mamaRoo at the front door of the kitchen in the morning or by the window when I’m working from home, and I can control the movement and sound entirely from my phone, which is kind of amazing.
I honestly didn’t know how or if I would need any device when I had Magnus, when Johannes was little I just held him myself. But its a different ball game with two kids, it really truly is and I’m on my own at the busiest times of the day. So for us the mamaRoo is the best ever, and 4 months later Magnus still enjoys it. He doesn’t fall asleep in it like he used to, but he loves it to sit and just relax now or play with the odd toy. I call it the robot-babysitter. I am already nervous about what I’ll be doing to occupy him when he outgrows it! This is the only way aside from the carrier that I’ve been able to keep both kids happy and entertained.
