Infant Swing: 4moms mamaRoo 4
Monthly Rate: Gently Used $35, New $50
Why we recommend it: When it comes to infant swings, the 4moms mamaRoo 4 is the clear winner. Celebrated for its parent-like, natural rocking movements, the mamaRoo will help soothe your little one to sleep or just relax, giving you some precious baby-holding free moments
What the experts say: Inspired by Harvey Karp’s Five S’s, the Mamaroo has a natural swinging motion that soothes the majority of babies.
Why rent it: Infant swings are miracle workers for many parents. But babies have very discerning opinions about what they like and hate -- which is why there are so many options! Renting gives parents the ability to try out the mamaRoo without gambling $200+ on something that might not be a good fit for their little one.
When you'll need it: The typical use for the mamaRoo is from your little one's very first days until around 4 or 5 months old. It can hold your baby until it reaches 20 lbs, which is usually 9-12 months. However, you'll be ready to move on to the Baby Play Saucer once your little one shows stronger interest in sitting upright, taking in his surroundings more.
