What to Look For in a Portable Mobile for Travel

Safe To Use

It’s impossible to keep an eye on your baby at all times, which is why ensuring that your baby’s toys are safe is so important. When buying a mobile for your baby, you want to make sure that all the product parts are safe.

If any part looks sharp or uneven, return it right away. Also, check to make sure that your mobile does not come with tiny parts that could prove to be choking hazards.

Most importantly, we only recommend using these on car seats either as part of your travel system or when out of the car. If you give your baby toys in the car on road trips, always make sure you can monitor your baby when using the toys.

Fun Colors 

Contrasting colors affect the development of the baby’s optic nerve by encouraging them to exercise and coordinate their eye muscles. That’s why it’s recommended to look for baby products and toys that feature black and white surfaces.

You can also look for different textures and patterns to further add to your baby’s multi-sensory experience of their mobile and improve their focus and concentration.

One thing that can make traveling with a baby stressful is packing way too much! Lugging around a bunch of baby toys is just not an option. It’s a good idea to look for a portable crib mobile that is easy to latch onto your stroller or travel crib

Getting products that can be used in multiple situations will cut down on what you need to include on your baby travel checklist!

Ease of Use

Look for a portable mobile that is easy to fix onto your baby’s travel crib or travel stroller. You want it to be able to latch onto whichever surface you choose easily and quickly, and pack back up just as easily too.
