When a child is young and just starting to explore the world, visual stimulation is an important part of the learning process. Since newborns and infants are too young for books, and often need time to adjust to interactive toys, mobiles are a great addition above any crib. Hanging mobiles often play double duty in a nursery: Besides entertaining your baby before and after nap time, it also acts as additional decor, especially since they come in so many beautiful patterns and colors. As you make your purchase, be sure to consider these two functions, as well as these tips. More
