What is Mamaroo?

Mamaroo is a baby swing and lounger that can be used in multiple positions. It can bounce and sway like a traditional baby swing, but it also reclines to become more like a bouncer or an infant seat.

The Mamaroo was invented by Mary Koes and Fred Hopke and two other Carnegie Melon alumni who won the Invention of the Year Award from Parent Magazine in 2011. They are behind 4mom, the company that makes Mamaroo.

Why Clean Mamaroo?

You want to take care of your baby’s health, so it is important that you clean the area where they are laid. This will ensure that no dirt or bacteria can build up in the fabric and escape when your baby gets too hot.

What You Will Need To Clean Mamaroo

  • – Mamacow Baby Bottle Soap (recommended for this project)
  • – An old toothbrush (not your own obviously!)
  • – Towels and wipes

Before you start cleaning, make sure to remove the fabric from Mamaroos frame. Then, you can begin washing it. Apply a liberal amount of soap to the fabric and let them soak for about 20 minutes, then wring them out and hang them to dry.

When they are almost dry, you can use an old toothbrush to scrub the surface of the fabric in circular motions until all dirt is gone. Then wipe down with a clean towel or wipes .

You can also follow these steps for your Mamaroo’s frame. Make sure not to use too much force when scrubbing, or you may damage the frame. When all soap has been washed off, wipe down with a towel to dry.

You are now ready to put your baby back in their clean Mamaroo! Read Mamaroo vs baby swing here.
