Tired parents will tell you that if there’s anything they could do to keep your baby happily in their cot for even a minute longer, they’d do it. Whether your little one is awake or asleep, time spent laying safely in their cot is golden, for them, and their parents! This is where a baby mobile comes in.
A cot mobile will be one of your child’s very first baby toys, and as is the case with so many toys for little ones, it does much more than simply entertain them. A mobile helps your little one begin to develop some of their very first skills and concepts. Gazing up from the comfort of their baby cot, bubs can practise focusing on an object, tracking it as it moves, exploring depth perception while training their two eyes to converge on a single point, and begin to practise reaching as they try their darnedest to wrangle their unruly little arms or legs to stretch upwards towards that fascinating thing in the sky.
And aside from entertaining your little one, a beautiful baby mobile can add a little personality and aesthetic appeal to what otherwise could be an overly ‘functional’ space. Many nursery furniture brands walk the line between form and function so well - we love Snuz for their pleasing designs that work so well while still looking fantastic. Whether you’re working towards a sleek and minimalistic nursery or something a little more decorative, a carefully chosen cot mobile can help you express your style.
