There’s nothing more calming and comforting for a baby than being rocked. Rocking a baby gently not only calms them down when they’re fussy, but it can easily lull them into a blissful slumber. We would rock them from dusk till dawn if they had it their way. That’s why a rocker should be on every mom-to-be’s registry, because every mom deserves a break every now and then, even though there’s nothing more bonding and sweeter than rocking a baby yourself.
The Mamas & Papas MAGIC Globe Rocker ($299.99) has been touted as the Ferrari of baby rockers, and one can easily see why! It has three recline positions from seated to lying down for snooze time. It offers two options – gently rocking the baby back and forth or rotate the seat for side to side motion. Suitable from birth to 6 months (maximum weight 20 lbs), this rocker has a multitude of features, which makes it a fun and relaxing experience for the baby! Adding to its uniqueness, inserting a MAGIC card (sold separately for $29.99; available in Play Sleep Relax, Musical Fun, Jingly Jungle, Mini Explorers, and Play Time Farm) will activate lights shows and sound. It’s even compatible with MP3s, enabling parents to play their own music, rhymes, and stories.
Setting this rocker up was such a breeze! I haven’t been able to get a full on experience with it since my baby hasn’t arrived yet (due in July), but I’ll keep you updated to let you know how she likes it. I’ll also provide more pictures (and maybe a video) for you to see how it works in action.

About Mamas & Papas: Like all parents, David and Luisa Scacchetti were filled with excitement when they found out they were expecting their first child. With their Italian roots, they looked to a culture bursting with passion, style and elegance to find beautiful nursery products for their baby daughters. This inspiration led Luisa to set up a boutique baby shop in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, UK which has grown into one of the best loved baby brands in Great Britain and around the world. Over 30 years on, Mamas & Papas is still based in Huddersfield, now with David and Luisa’s daughters in the business. Amanda and Olivia continue, with their parents, to drive the passion for providing parents with beautiful baby things that offer the highest levels of quality, attention to detail and individuality. As they are also mothers themselves, they are committed to ensuring our generation of moms and dads have the best products they need as they embark on the parenting journey.
