We never had a mobile with Avery. It just wasn't something she ever needed. She was sleeping 12+ hours through the night at just 12 weeks old and never woke in the middle of the night again after that. She was always a fantastic sleeper, so when Emerson came along, I thought it would be the same.
BOY was I wrong. He's just now at 7 months beginning to sleep through the night. It's happened about 8 times in the past 2 weeks now. So things are just starting to get better. He also will not put himself to sleep which I know is really important.
So when I saw that Tiny Love came out with a few new Mobiles I knew I had to try one!
We received the Soothe 'n Groove
Looks like a lot of little pieces, but I promise you it's EASY!!!
There's the long arm, that's first. It snaps right into the main player, then the big round piece goes to the top part of the arm. To the bottom of that round piece goes the green and yellow piece. Each animal locks into this and then there's a button that screws to the bottom of this piece.
Then to install to the crib you just put one of those white pieces onto the back of it (after assembling the batteries) and then put the music player inside the crib and screw on the other piece to the outside and it's all assembled.
The colors don't match perfectly, but Emerson's bed set is giraffes, monkeys, elephants and raccoon's so it matches perfectly animal wise!!! (YES I know we have a bumper in there. #1 Emerson is 100% mobile, so he can turn if need be and #2 he was getting his arm stuck between the mattress and the crib on numerous occasions, so we needed it in there)
It's really cute!
I think the best part is this!
Once baby is done with the mobile part of it, it can then be a music box/boom box for baby. The arm just detaches and you take off the mount and you're done and it has a handle that baby can carry it around with! Love this feature.
Here's a video I took.
Sometimes as the animals spin around they pop, but they're really just turning to face baby so it's acceptable.
It has quite a few different volume levels. Also 6 different music styles as well. You can turn on the ambient light, or leave it off.
I'm just in love with this. Thanks to this mobile Emerson sometimes puts himself to sleep now!! I used to have to walk him through the house to get him down, but now it's about a 40% chance he'll put himself to sleep! Also if he wakes up too early in the morning and I know he needs to go back to sleep I'll turn it on and usually within 15 minutes he'll fall back asleep, even if I just tried for 30+ minutes!
It does have a 40 minute timer. So after that amount of time it will automatically shut off. This is a give or take for me. I'd like if it possibly had a plug in option as well, then we wouldn't need a timer. But any button can be pushed to turn it back on. So if baby kicks the animal button below it will turn back on.
Overall though I do love this mobile. I also love that it grows with baby into toddlerhood and beyond.
Price: $50-$55 from what I've seen! It's totally worth it!
