>he loves his monkeys!


It amazes me how quickly Holden will calm down when placed in his crib and having his mobile cranked up. It’s fun to sit there and watch him work to follow the monkeys round and round. I also can get a few minutes of “me” time. Granted, it’s constantly interrupted with me having to go in and wind it back up every minute or so. Why can’t they just make mobiles that run on batteries and have an automatic shut off like the swings? I’m sure I’m not the first mom to think that so I wonder what’s stopping them? They don’t want to make things too convenient for us!

Thank you, GiGi for getting Holden his monkey mobile!

    >They do!!! Elyse has a battery operated mobile that even has a remote so we don't actually have to go into the room to restart it. You should get one. They run for 18-25 minutes at a time and then you can push the remote button or go into the room and start/stop it in there. We opted for one with the remote when we were attempting the "cry it out" method. The more she saw us the more upset she would get so the remote gave us the ability to calm her without being seen. She loves laying there watching it and listening to the classical music. And I get 20 minutes of me time. Totally worth the money!!! Here are a couple but check Babies R Us. They have a bunch.http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2455072http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3243098

    >Ha! I had NO idea! I guess I should have read the details a little more closely on the hundreds of mobiles I looked at when I was registering! Now I'm like – he really loves this mobile and I would feel bad taking it away from him! But I am tempted…Thanks for the info, Kate!
