Babies spend an awful lot of time lying in their cot, staring at the ceiling! Give them something to stimulate their senses and hang a mobile for them! You can readily buy wind-up or battery operated mobiles that turn and play tunes, but if you don't want to buy a mobile, why not make one for your baby instead? Make brightly decorated disks from cardboard and suspend them above the cot using thread. Make sure that it is securely tied and well out of reach from your baby so as not to present a hazard. High contrast colors will stimulate your baby's senses and relieve the boredom of staring up to a plain ceiling!
