Starting in May and running through the end of June, we’re asking all of you mamaRoo lovers out there to post a photo on your Instagram or Twitter accounts.  Snap a shot (preferably with your mamaRoo!), and post it using the hashtag #TEAMmamaRoo.

For every post we see, we’ll donate $1 (up to $12,000) in product to Project Sweet Peas, an amazing organization that helps NICU families. It’s that easy!!

Why Project Sweet Peas?

We are BIG fans of Project Sweet Peas.  They are national non-profit organization coordinated by volunteers, who through personal experience have become passionate about providing support to families of premature or sick infants and to those who have been affected by pregnancy and infant loss.

Project Sweet Peas acknowledges the importance of parental involvement in caregiving and decision-making in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), and seeks to promote family-centered care (FCC) competencies in hospitals nationwide. Care packages, hospital events, peer-to-peer support, financial aid, educational materials, and other Project Sweet Peas services, support the cultural, spiritual, emotional, and financial needs of families as they endure life in the NICU.

With your support, we’ll be able to donate 50 mamaRoos to hospitals and families with babies in the NICU.

mamaRoo & the NICU

Did you know that the mamaRoo is already in more than 300 NICUs across the country?  Doctors and nurses find it transformational in caring for preemies and babies with severe conditions.

Dr. Alan Lantzy, Vice Chair of Pediatrics at West Penn Hospital, has this to say about the mamaRoo: “The mamaRoo is calming because it provides an environment that is similar to still being in utero – babies feel contained, they’re moving, there’s a little bit of sound – and we find that very soothing for our babies.”
