3. To Help With Reflux

If your baby suffers from reflux, reclining Mamaroo can provide some relief by helping to keep their head and chest slightly elevated while they are in the seat. This can help reduce uncomfortable symptoms associated with reflux.

How to Recline Mamaroo in 5 Easy Steps

Step 1: Gently Push the Recline Button

The very first step is to locate the recline button located in front of the Mamaroo. Once you find it, gently press down on the recline button until you hear a click. Also make sure not to push too hard as it could damage the recliner.

Step 2: Grasp the Handle and Pull Upwards

After pressing down on the recline button, you will see a handle just above the seat cushion. Grab hold of this handle and slowly pull upwards until it locks into place. This will give you an extra 20 degrees of recline.

Step 4: Adjust Footrest

If your Mamaroo is equipped with a footrest, then you can adjust this by pushing down on the release button located just under the seat cushion. This will cause the footrest to flip down into position.

Step 5: Secure Recline Position

Once all of these steps have been completed, it’s time to secure the recline position. To do this, simply push down on the recline button located near the handle and it will lock into place for a secure, comfortable recline for baby.

Some Tips to Recline Mamaroo

1. Do Not Let the Seat Recline Too Far

This is very important. The Mamaroo should not recline too far as it can be dangerous if the seat is too reclined and the baby falls asleep in that position. To ensure that the seat is reclined just enough, use the handle on the back of the Mamaroo to adjust it until you see a 45-degree angle between the back and the floor.

2. Use the Safety Belt to Secure Your Baby

Once reclined, ensure your baby is properly secured in the Mamaroo using the safety belt around their waist or chest. This will ensure that your baby is safely tucked in so there’s no risk of them sliding out of the seat as it reclines.

3. Check the Reclined Position

It’s always a good idea to double-check that the Mamaroo has been reclined correctly before leaving your baby in it. To do this, stand beside the Mamaroo and gently push it with one hand while using your other hand to ensure the seat is not reclined too far. If the seat does not move, then it is properly secured.

4. Adjust the Recline Angle as Needed

As time goes on, your baby may need more or less support in their Mamaroo seat. To adjust the angle of recline, use the handle on the back of the Mamaroo to adjust it until you see the desired angle between the back of the seat and the floor.

5. Be Aware of How Long Your Baby Is in Reclined Position

It’s important to be aware of how long your baby is in a reclined position, as this can cause them to become uncomfortable and irritable. To ensure that your baby does not stay in the Mamaroo for too long, make sure to take them out for regular breaks and move them around in different positions throughout the day.

Following these tips will help ensure your little one is safe and comfortable using their Mamaroo. As always, make sure to follow all manufacturer’s instructions when adjusting the recline angle on their Mamaroo. Happy reclining!

I’ve learned a lot about the way children learn and behave, especially in a school setting with regards to curriculum. I enjoy sharing that insight through my writing and hope that it can help others.
