    The two machines do completely different things. While they might seem similar to parents who are shopping for something to soothe their baby while giving the parents some hands-free time, the movement each provides is totally different. Some babies love bouncing, while others love rocking. If you find that your baby loves motion in your arms like bouncing and being swung from side to side, they’ll probably love the mamaRoo. If they love to be rocked or swung back and forth, they’ll likely be into the rockaRoo.
