What To Consider When Buying A Cot Mobile

Cot mobiles aren’t just a decorative piece for the nursery. They can actually be beneficial for your baby as in the first few months of life, babies are attracted to bold and contrasting colours, which make cot mobiles good for their visual development. Some also have multi-functions.

Before you decide on a cot mobile for your new baby there are a few things to consider.

Will you be using the cot mobile as a musical and/or light aid too? There are plenty of options to buy cot mobiles with light shows which project onto the ceiling while playing lullabies or white noise to your baby. The integrated night lights can be really useful for night feeds too.

What colour scheme or theme is your nursery or babies room? You may want a cot mobile which matches the room or fits in nicely with the theme.

Thing about the size of the cot mobile. If you travel or stay away from home regularly you may want something small and easy to pack and take with you.

Lastly you may just want a traditional mobile which hangs from the ceiling and adds some colour and is a focal point for your baby to look at.

Cot Mobile Safety

  • Make sure you follow the manufacturer’s safety instructions carefully when fixing you baby’s cot mobile.
  • It is very important that there are no loose parts which could fall into your baby’s cot.
  • Make sure the mobile remains out of your baby’s reach.
  • As soon as your baby is able to pull themselves up or push up onto their hands and knees the cot mobile needs to be removed.

I hope this list of the best cot mobiles was helpful.
