Parents’ Top Pick for the Best Automatic Rocking BassinetMom holding toddler by the MamaRoo Sleep Bassinet

An auto rocking bassinet has long been high on the list of must-have items for new parents—and for good reason. These compact sleep spaces are safer for babies than co-sleeping but still provide all the benefits of having your baby close by for easier nighttime feeding and soothing sessions. And there’s no denying the convenience factor of having an automatic rocking baby bed to keep baby nearby for nighttime feedings.

But let’s be honest here: even with the convenience of an automatic bassinet rocker in your room, for most new parents, nights with a new baby can leave you feeling like you just pulled an all-nighter. That’s why you might want to think beyond the traditional bassinet and consider one of the new automatic swinging bassinets  that are revolutionizing the way parents get their newborns to sleep.

Unlike old-school bassinets, the 4moms® Mamaroo Sleep® Bassinet, the best automatic rocking bassinet, is equipped with sound and motion to re-create a womb like environment that helps your baby sleep. If your baby wakes up the moment you try to set him or her down, this auto rock bassinet is like having a second set of hands to soothe and calm your baby so you can get some rest.

To ensure you’re creating a safe sleep environment for your baby, when using the MamaRoo Sleep Bassinet or any automatic bassinet, keep these tips in mind:

  • Choose an auto rocking bassinet that has been certified by the Consumer Safety Products Commission (CPSC)
  • Only use the mattress and fitted sheets that are made by the manufacturer of your bassinet
  • Keep blankets, stuffed animals, and pillows out of the bassinet
  • Always put your baby down on his or her back and do not leave your baby unattended
  • If your automatic bassinet has wheels, make sure they are locked—and if you move the bassinet from room to room, never move it with your baby in it
  • Follow the manufacturer’s age and weight limit recommendations

Why You Need an Auto Rocking Bassinet

With smart tech and well thought out design, an auto rocking bassinet can deliver easier nights for you and your baby from the minute you bring your baby home from the hospital until your baby is able to move around, push up on their hands, or roll over.

Because they recreate the sounds and motions of the womb, these smart bassinets can make your baby’s transition to the world smoother. And for new parents, that can make all the difference between an easy transition to life as a parent and weeks (or even months) of sleepless nights.

4moms’ automatic rocking bassinet can help make the transition easier for both of you. As Paolo, the engineer, trainer and dad behind the product review site UpsideDad noted in his review of the MamaRoo Sleep Bassinet

It is a known fact that babies are soothed by motion. If you’ve ever seen a mom bouncing up and down with a newborn you know what I’m talking about. Babies love it and it calms them down. This bassinet does the work for you. It doesn’t mean that your baby won’t wake up in the night. All it means is that it will extend his sleep and putting him down is much, much easier.

When used correctly, an automatic swinging bassinet will become an essential piece of baby gear that helps you care for your new baby—one that you’ll love as much as your baby does.

How Does the 4moms Automatic Bassinet Work? 

Every parent finds their own way to soothe their baby. Rocking, jiggling, swaying…whatever moves it takes to help their baby sleep. We built the MamaRoo Sleep Bassinet to move like you do—and loaded it with everything you need to create the best rocking bassinet for the needs of new parents.

That means five motions, five speeds and four sounds that can be combined 100 different ways until you find the exact right combination that helps your baby sleep. All these settings are easily controlled from the 4moms app (available on Android and iOS) on your smartphone or the built-in touch screen on the bassinet. The automatic bassinet is height adjustable, so you can position it for comfort and ease of use. There’s even a timer to get your baby started on a sleep schedule.

In addition to our patented movement technology, our bassinet auto rocker keeps baby safe with breathable mesh sides and a firm, flat sleep surface that meets the AAP’s Safe Sleep Guidelines. An optional storage basket clips into place on the base of the bassinet to provide convenient access to diapers, wipes, onesies, pacifiers and everything else you need to help your baby sleep. 

Since 4moms introduced its automatic rocking bassinet in 2020, it continues to earn accolades as the best rocking bassinet on best gear lists, including an Innovation Award at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
