These adorable nursery-room staples entertain babies and help them drift off to sleep.Best Nursery Mobiles

Mobiles have long been a nursery-room staple. That’s because they entertain babies and often help them drift off to sleep.

Usually made with objects that dangle by a string, mobiles are typically hung over a cribor a diaper-changing table out of reach of your child. Some of the newer versions have more bells and whistles like moving in circles and playing music.

When it comes to selecting mobiles, note that newborns can’t distinguish subtle color differences until about three months old. But they can see light and dark color contrasts.

Also, just-born babies can only focus within six to 10 inches of their faces so being able to adjust the height of your mobile is helpful too. If you’re attaching the mobile to a crib, you should remove it when your baby is about five months or able to reach it.

For big smiles and coos, check out these fun mobiles.

Best Multi-Purpose Nursery Mobile

Love multitasking products? Then the Soothe ‘n Groove might be perfect for you. It’s a musical mobile, portable music box and a white noise machine. Moving characters and soothing sounds help wee ones nod off, while easy-to-push buttons let older kids take control of the music to play everything from classical to jazz to world music. Toddlers can even tote this around like a mini boom box, and you can use it in the stroller for naps or when overnighting away from home.
