So which baby crib mobile is the best one and does it really matter which one you choose?
Most new parents are probably extremely excited to start decorating the nursery and planning the theme for the new baby’s room and there might not be a lot of consideration into the type of mobile you purchase.
It is common to simply choose something that will match the theme of the room but it doesn’t have to stop there.
Many baby mobiles come fully equipped with music as well as movement though there are quite a few that do not.
Both kinds can be of benefit, and non-motorised mobiles can often be spun or bounced while your baby is watching to engage her attention, which can be particularly beneficial when you are changing her diaper and want her to stay calm. Mobiles can be hung over baby cribs or change tables, or in a place that is visible from both.
If you want something that will soothe your little one then consider getting one that comes with music in addition to movement. The movement and the music both capture baby’s attention and engage her.
They both serve a purpose and the music just makes it easier to relax your baby when she starts to fuss. Many mobiles come with a wide selection of songs and sounds programmed into the mobile which is great for keeping your baby interested.
She might get tired of hearing the same song and it’s nice to offer her some variety in addition to new and different sounds. Many also come with sweet lullabies that can help put your baby to sleep and calm her especially when she doesn’t want to go to bed.
In addition, you can opt for a baby mobile that has different colors as well as characters attached. If you want even more options then look for those with soft, detachable animals that can later be used by your little one to play with and practice her dexterity.
This is especially helpful when she can no longer use the mobile. After they reach a certain age, it might be dangerous to keep a mobile hanging over the crib since many come with strings that may pose a hazard. If you have a mobile that hangs from the ceiling and is far out of your baby’s reach, then that is fine to leave in place.
For the first few months of your infant’s life do consider a mobile as they can help entertain her as well as sooth her.
