What makes a the best baby mobile the best? There are many opinions on the answer to this question but according to bestchildtoys.com, “Baby mobiles are staples for infant nurseries. Almost all infant nurseries have infant mobiles. Unfortunately, not all of baby crib mobiles are created equal. Some are superior and are good educational toys to have, whereas some infant mobiles function mostly as a nursery decor without much educational value at all. Therefore, it is very important for parents or caregivers to be able to discern which baby mobiles are good for baby’s brain development and which ones are less good for that.”
I could not have said it better myself. The best baby mobiles are the ones that are benefiting your baby, not the person standing in the doorway of the room admiring how artistic the crib mobile looks from their angle. Studies show that babies can see color from birth, they just have difficulty differentiating similar tones such as red and orange. Until two months, babies can see and benefit more from looking at something that is black, white and red and had more bold shapes. From two months on, babies start to see more and more color, is developing objecting tracking skills and depth perception. So again, ask yourself, what is the best baby mobile? Start simple and introduce more colors and shapes as your baby gets older and find something that is more educational for them and less decorative for you and their nursery, even if you want everything to match, it is important for your baby.
