Baby mobiles are great for both entertaining and calming your baby. In the early stages of life your baby is going to spend much of his time laying on his back. Rather than staring at a boring, flat ceiling, many parents choose to install a baby mobile to give their little baby an interesting and stimulating feature to look at.

There are two main types of baby mobiles available.

Ceiling mounted baby mobile

Years ago this was the only type of baby mobile available. This mobile is attached to the roof of your house by a hook or screw.

The downside of ceiling mounted baby mobiles is that they require a hook or screw to be drilled into your ceiling. When the time comes to remove the baby mobile you will need to patch the hole left behind.

Crib mounted baby mobile

The most popular variety of baby mobile. This mobile attaches directly to your infant’s crib and can be installed in seconds.

Since they are able able to support more weight, baby crib mobiles will have more elaborate hangings than their roof mounted cousins.

Below we have selected some nursery mobiles to help the moms to choose the one, that matches their style. Check them out and get inspired 🙂
