A whole new world. Baby's brand new, and they're still getting used to their surroundings. You may think that they're just lying down, but they're also learning about depth perception and spatial awareness. Mobiles can help with this, and they're also wonderful for distracting and calming down fussy babies.
Go color happy. Although babies aren't very good at distinguishing color from birth, it's important to give them ample opportunity to practice their visual abilities. Choose a mobile with several colors, especially high-contrast ones. Consider purchasing a mobile with objects that face downward. After all, you're buying the mobile for Baby and not for guests to look at.
Make it spin. From flashing lights to little figurines that dance, today's mobiles have a host of different features. So what's best for your little one? Mobiles that play music can provide audio stimulation, while some have letters and numbers to familiarize young ones with the fundamentals of learning. We suggest just picking one that will make your new arrival smile all day long.
