Question about crib mobile

Posted by keilamarie (My Page) on

I'm expecting and just completed the crib set up including bedding and mobile. It looks as if the mobile is too low!!!! I've searched for recommended height to matress but can not find any. Anyone know how many inches from the matress is safe?

Thanks so much,

This doesn't list a height, but gives other recommendations that should help answer your question.

Newborn babies have a very short focus.....and a very short reach as well. Hang the mobile as close as is convenient ( don't want to bump his head picking him up) and as soon as he learns to reach for it....move it higher.
