Babies aren’t easy to entertain. They can look at an object for only so long before they lose interest. But one product has kept them spellbound for decades now. Baby mobiles are used to soothe and entertain babies during their first few months of life. This is the stage where neonates spend most of their time in their cribs.
How do they work?
Newborn babies do not have very good vision. They can only discern blurry shapes and figures because they are nearsighted. It is only after the third month of life that most babies begin to recognize familiar faces. Before that time, they are nearly purblind. However, they can make out motion. They can tell if an object, no matter how fuzzy it may be, is moving. This is the genius of the baby mobile.
Lying on her back after a nap or just before one, a baby looks up and sees a slowing moving object. See might not be able to identify the shapes, patterns, or designs on this contraption, but she can tell that it is moving and that, for her, is intriguing. It is no wonder baby mobiles are one of the most popular baby nursery accessories.
