Crib mobiles might seem simple in design. They’re made up of little objects that just spin above your baby’s head, but they benefit your baby in so many ways. In addition to convincing your fussy baby to get some shut-eye, mobiles also provide some important sensory interaction. Those little characters will stimulate your baby’s brain and calm them. They serve as an early learning tool, even though you might not think of it that way.
Nowadays, the best crib mobiles play music, nature sounds and white noise to encourage your baby to either engage your child or convince them it’s bed-time. We found some amazing crib mobiles for you. Two of our picks act as awe-inspiring nightlights by projecting stars onto the ceiling or your room or your baby’s room. You can also easily transport two of our picks and put them on strollers and other items, so your baby can see familiar stuffed animal faces wherever you go, which will help keep them calm. One of our choices even has a remote control, allowing you to turn the mobile on and off without disturbing the baby.
