Why Parents Choose a Black and White Crib Mobile


New moms and dads who have done their research may choose a less colorful mobile rather. The reason that they decide against the traditional styles that come with most crib sets is that research indicates that newborns see contrasts before they see colors.

It has been reported that newborns start to notice certain colors like green, yellow, red and orange at approximately two months of age and quickly afterwards begin to see shades of blue. But many find that babies are attracted to high contrasts of dark and light over even the most brightly colored baby mobiles. In addition they seem to notice patterns with curved lines which makes an excellent case for buying zebra baby bedding with hot pink accents for a baby girl nursery or a zebra crib set for a baby boy nursery decorated in one of the popular jungle designs.
