Recall Notice – MamaRoo Baby Swing & RockaRoo Baby Rockers:
4moms has announced a recall of their MamaRoo Baby Swing, versions 1.0 through 4.0 and RockaRoo Baby Rockers. When the swing or rocker is not in use, their restraint straps can hang below the seat and non-occupant crawling infants can become entangled in the straps, posing entanglement and strangulation hazards. Consumers with infants who can crawl should immediately stop using the recalled swings and rockers and place them in an area where crawling infants cannot access. Consumers should contact 4moms immediately to register for a free strap fastener that will prevent the straps from extending under the swing when not in use. Contact 4moms toll-free at 877-870-7390 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, by email at or online at or and click on SAFETY & RECALL at the top of the page for more information.

"Times can get hard overnight. When my husband lost his job, we couldn’t afford some of the basics for our baby. Our neighbor told me that we could turn to the family center around the corner for some help. It’s made all the difference."

"I could feel my son and me growing apart. I knew we had to reconnect before he got into middle school. Thank goodness for the parents in the parenting group at my local family center. Just sharing our stories gave me new ideas that seem to be working."

"Being a single parent can get lonely. My neighborhood’s family center gives us parents and our kids a chance to meet and have some fun together. Who knew how quickly strangers could bond? And it’s all free. Even the food!"

Your neighborhood Family Center is ready and waiting for you and your child to walk through the door and get started.
