4moms, the makers of innovative baby gear, received a 2020 CES Innovation Award for its new mamaRoo sleep bassinet–a new smart sleep solution that integrates the same proven motions of the 4moms mamaRoo infant seat, which has helped calm and soothe over a million babies, into a safe, flat sleep surface. The natural motions of the mamaRoo sleep bassinet helps baby fall asleep and stay asleep longer. The 4moms mamaRoo sleep bassinet was recognized as a 2020 honoree in the health and wellness category.
“Parents lose more than six weeks of sleep in their first year with a newborn,” said Gary Waters, CEO of 4moms. “Sleep is a major pain point for new parents, and we knew that we could develop a 4moms product that could help alleviate the stress of bedtime, and help both babies and parents sleep better.”
The mamaRoo sleep bassinet features five unique motions (car ride, wave, kangaroo, tree swing, and rock-a-bye), vibration, and five speed options. It also includes four, built-in white noises (rain, ocean, fanand a shush). Parents can easily control all of these functions via the 4moms app on a compatible smart device. The app also includes a timer feature, which can be used to help establish a bedtime routine.
“The mamaRoo sleep bassinet is an ingenious tool for new parents,” explained Carolynne J. Harvey, baby sleep expert, author and founder of Dream Baby Sleep. “It mimics the soothing sensations that your baby is used to from being in the womb, as well as how parents naturally move while holding their little ones.”
The mamaRoo sleep bassinet also adheres to the American Association of Pediatrics (AAP)’s safe sleep guidelines by providing a firm, flat sleeping surface and tight fitted sheet. It can be placed in the parents bedroom for at least the first six months, as well. Other features include mesh sides for visibility and airflow, the ability to adjust the height, and a waterproof mattress. The bassinet comes with a cotton sheet, and an additional sheet can be purchased for $14.99. Parents can also purchase a separate storage basket that clips onto the bottom of the unit for easy access to baby essentials for $29.99. The mamaRoo sleep bassinet will be available in early 2020.
