You may be thinking that you need to get a baby mobile because you see other people have them. They are a classic baby item to buy, and your crib may feel empty without one. On the other hand, they do seem kind of like a waste of money at times. Is your baby’s life going to be better as a result of buying this thing that hands over them? We will make sure you know both sides of the story so you can make a good choice.
To Buy a Baby Mobile Or Not to Buy?
I will say this right off the bat, my wife and I did not buy one. I was in the “why in the world would any human buy one of these things” camp. It seemed stupid to me. I will tell a story to illustrate why I was wrong.
One day when my daughter Ivy decided she was going to give me a real hard time. My wife was traveling for work, so it was just me on daddy duty. I was cooking, and I saw my daughter had the remote. I made a mental note to get it from her, but I had to stir the food one more time.
Before you know it, I look back at her, and the remote is GONE! I spent the next four hours on and off looking for this stupid remote. With my wife being gone the house was so quiet, I needed the TV this week. The reason I could not find it was because it was too hard for me to think like a 12-month-old child. I was searching like an adult in places that adults would lose things.
Think Like a Baby When It Comes to The Baby Mobile
If you are thinking that getting a baby mobile is a bad idea it is most likely because you are struggling to think like a baby. Having something hanging over your bed to keep your attention span is stupid for an adult because a bed is a place to sleep. For a baby, a crib is more than a place to relax and rest, though as parents we wish it was.
When my wife made her first baby mobile for Cute Yute, I remember she asked me to the hold it for some photos. This was also my daughter’s first interaction, and she was just amazed by this thing. It changed my perspective, and I decided on that day that if we are blessed with more kids, that we would get them a baby mobile.
I have never seen my daughter reach for anything as she tried grabbing for that baby mobile; it had her full attention, and that is saying a lot.
When you begin the baby mobile search know that there are a few different types, you can get. The possibilities are endless. If you have something custom, you want to be made just let Emily know, and she will get it done for you.
The options are endless regarding what you can do. A custom mobile is an excellent opportunity to match your nursery theme or give a special gift that reflects something unique within your relationship with mom and or dad.
For example, I should have Emily make a donut baby mobile for our next child. Donuts are a cornerstone of our relationship.
