Rockin' and Rollin': The Nuna Leaf vs. 4Moms Rockaroo

Rockin' and Rollin': The Nuna Leaf vs. 4Moms Rockaroo

Baby bouncers and swings are not at all like they used to be. The traditional styles are still available, but the options have vastly expanded since our days spent lounging in them two or three decades ago. They are cuter, comfier, more hi-tech, and all around fancier with more gadgets, accessories, and directions of movement than ever before! If you’re intrigued by some of the newer, more modern models, you will definitely want to do your research to make sure you’re dropping all those pretty pennies on the professional-baby-rocker of your wildest motherhood dreams.

Two of the main front runners in the up and coming bouncers and swings are The Nuna Leaf and 4Moms Rockaroo and, lucky for you, we’ve put all the research in one place.

The Nuna Leaf is inspired by just that, the carefree way a leaf floats on the breeze. It functions with an ultra smooth and quiet side-to-side motion with a rock-safe base and motion lock to ensure safety. You have the option of adding a plush toy bar for hours of entertainment, features a mesh backing to provide little breezes –following suit with the general theme of the device- and is able to evolve with your child from infant to big-kid. Weighing only 11.5 lbs. itself, it has a weight limit of a whopping 130 lbs. That’s right, mama, you can take it for a ride, too! For $219.95, the Nuna Leaf baby seat comes in 4 colors and will swing for three minutes when pushed. The Nuna Leaf Wind can be purchased separately to make the Leaf swing automatically.

The Rockaroo is made by 4Moms, a company originally started by a group of four mothers who are committed to making products that make caring for a baby easier in a techy, forward-thinking way. The Rockaroo rocker moves in a upside-down swinging motion and increases the distance from the pivot point, which creates more motion at your baby’s head (where it counts) and really maximizes the sensation for your little one. The Rockaroo is available in the Classic version for $159.99 in Grey and the Plush version for $179.99 (ON SALE now for $137.73) in Multi and Silver. It is incredibly stylish, lightweight and easy to move, and has options for Mp3 plug-ins. With removable seat covers and a size about 1/3 the size of traditional swings, it is incredibly convenient. It weighs 11.5 lbs, like the Nuna Leaf, has a newborn insert for recently arrived tiny babies, but only accommodates up to 25 lbs. It is, however, more hands-free than the Nuna Leaf and has 5 different automatic speed settings.
