Cot Mobiles

Developed to help baby settle and sleep well at night

What are cot mobiles?

Cot mobiles are designed to calm your baby when in their cot or crib. They serve a dual purpose of entertaining your baby while he is lying in his cot by having something to watch and move. It is also there to calm him and help him relax and fall asleep.

What different types of cot mobiles are there?

There are two types of cot mobiles to choose from. One is a ceiling mounted cot mobile that needs to be screwed into the ceiling. As popular as these were years ago, many parents think twice now as drilling a hole in the ceiling is a fair bit of hassle and obviously leaves a hole needing a patch up job when you no longer want the mobile.

The more common type of cot mobile these days is the crib/cot mounted mobile that is easily fixed to your baby’s crib or cot.

Top tips for buying a cot mobile

Newborns spend the majority of their time lying on their backs looking up, so investing in a mobile above their cot or crib is a good way to give your baby something to focus on and watch, which can often calm your baby and therefore help them to sleep.

How much do cot mobiles cost?

As with many baby products, there are different mobiles available on the market to suit all budgets and styles.

Some mobiles come with simple hanging toys whereas others come with toys, music and sounds to calm your baby.
