Crib Mobile

Baby Zelda is six weeks old! She still sleeps in a co-sleeper next to her mommy's bed but soon she'll move into a real crib. I'm thinking of ideas for a mobile to hang above her crib--mobiles have come a long way since my children were babies twenty-something years ago  when most choices were plastic animals and such.

So many beautiful choices--they are almost works of art for the nursery! Here are a few ideas I am considering.

Maybe something with sky, bird or tree themes?
Clockwise from top left: silk leaves from MoonLilyMobiles on etsy; Felt birds from LoveFeltXoXo on etsy; Birds on a branch from Spool Sewing Company; cute kites in the clouds from goshandgolly on etsy.

Or, maybe cute fluffy sheep or colorful fish?

Or, maybe just graphic shapes in beautiful colors.

So many choices! Hard to know which direction to go let alone what a baby would prefer...which one do you like best?


  1. All very beautiful.
    My Graco pack-N-Play came with a mobile with little stuffed bears. As I wanted to stick to something more Jewish and kosher, I removed the bears and replaced them with little stuffed torahs.

  2. Beautiful. I like mobiles that are interesting from the baby's perspective--with a lot of them the baby is just looking at a bunch of animals' feet or whatever. The leaves is probably the best of these, from a face-up perspective.

    1. Hi Chaya, You are right about that. I also like the leaves for their simplicity--maybe that's the winner?
