It is confession time. When I was pregnant, I had in my mind I'd be able to take care of a newborn while working full time and getting enough sleep and being a step mom to a very active 9 year old all while maintaining a marriage and household with dinner on the table every night. Ambitious? Maybe. Doable.... uh, no. After about a month of adjusting to our new life, I finally realized work wasn't going to be easy, getting time with Drake for homework would be a challenge, dinner every night might consist of frozen pizza or take-out and the battle between sleep and cuddles with my husband would mean sleep... every time. Hello to the new mom naivety.

Soon after that, I gave into the mamaRoo. Let me just preface I had read and heard pretty amazing things about this bad boy and I thought people must be exaggerating and I quickly learned, they weren't. I can now snuggle Drake for 10 minutes and cook a meal or even shower- my husband is thankful for that last one! But seriously. I admittedly have a baby who loves movement and is a spoiled little mommy's girl so it's been a challenge to put her down and let her cry for a bit when I know she's totally fine but I can set her up in her Roo and she's the happiest babe just watching the mobile and enjoying the movement. Best part? While I'm doing dinner or snuggling my other babe, I can change the settings for Emery if she dozes off to sleep or wants a little music all from my phone with their app. Coming from a gal who has that permanently attached to hip, it's very useful to be in tune with the babe even while I'm accomplishing other tasks.

End result- the mamaRoo is worth it. New mom? Invest in it! Or better yet, enter to win one now- you didn't think I'd tease you too much without offering a fabulous giveaway on the new mamaRoo, right?
