It’s official, a tiny human has taken over our living space and it suddenly looks like the apparatus set-up at the gymnastics dome in Rio – a swing, a bassinet, a play mat, a bouncer, toys, bibs, socks, and last but not least – the 4moms mamaRoo infant seat. After working all day, I’d LOVE to hold and play with Calvin for the rest of the night (let’s be honest – some nights I do), but it’s just not always physically possible. Unfortunately, there is so much still we still have to accomplish in the 4-5 hours we have in the evening.
Outside of 6 months being an extremely CUTE phase, it just me or is 6 months kind of an awkward stage developmentally? He is super active but can’t sit or stand up on his own so he’s just 18-19 lbs of crazy and all over the place – the only options are holding him or having a seat hold & entertain him. I do not like picking up Calvin from daycare where he is in a bouncer, just to put him down again at home: insert mom guilt here. Fortunately, having a great seat that will hold, soothe, and entertain Calvin has been key at this phase and he absolutely loves the MamaRoo. I don’t feel bad letting him chill in this seat when I know he’s having a great time. He is obsessed with the balls on the mobile and the calming motion of the seat. This child needs all the ‘calm’ he can get!

I will say that the 4moms products are a bit more expensive than the fisher-price or other infant seats, but I honestly think these are the types of products that are worth investing in, especially if your baby is happy. I like to spend less on clothes that they will outgrow in just a few weeks, and more on products that you can use and re-use for months, or with baby #2, #3, etc. Moms to be – you can also register for these items and someone can gift them to you 🙂
