What are moms saying?: “We bought the Mamaroo with our first baby because she wanted to be carried at all times or she would not sleep. With the Mamaroo we were finally able to sleep again! It’s been amazing!! Now we’re using it with our second child and still works like new!! It’s probably running 12-16 hours a day and works amazing!!! Definitely recommend it!!!”
Bottomline: Innovative, soothing with its unique motions

What are moms saying?: “My 8 week old baby loves this bouncer. Prior to getting this, I wasn't able to put her down anywhere. She hated lying on her back and would only go down into her bassinet for short periods and not consistently. I tried to baby wear her and again, she would fuss and fight it more often than not. I was desperate to get things done and a bouncer seemed like it might help me out because she really liked sitting at an incline. I felt the coco bouncer was a really thoughtfully designed bouncer made with beautiful materials. I looked at other higher rated and more popular brands in the same price range but they didn't seem to have as much bang for the buck. This bouncer can bounce, rock and can vibrate (with the batteries). Other bouncers in the same price range just bounced.” -- Haley J
Bottomline: Lies fully flat, semi-recline, or upright. Pleasing to the eye with various birch wood finishes.
