Sparkling Symphony Mobile – Review

Harry has always fallen asleep feeding, when I was breast-feeding it was easy in the middle of the night I would lift him out of the cot, feed him and then put him back asleep.

Now that I’ve stopped feeing him and he has a bottle I’m keen for him to be able to fall asleep himself.

Recently he was sent a Sparkling Symphony Mobile by Fisher Price to try out and from day one it has been  hit.

Our bedtime routine now consists of story, mobile on and a bottle and then if he is still awake I put him into his cot – now he may not always go straight to sleep however with the aid of this Symphony mobile it is getting easier to get him settled and re-settled in the night when he wakes for his night feed.

When Emmy was younger she had a basic cot mobile – wind it up and the teddies sung and it played one annoying tune – it didn’t get her to sleep and we tried it with Harry and soon removed as it didn’t work for him either.
 
This mobile is different – it has 4 setting to suit your needs:
  • Music only
  • Music and Lights
  • Music and Motion
  • Music, Motion and Lights
It plays 30 minutes of Lullabies, Classical Music and Nature sounds and gradually get softer and quieter as the time come on slowing fading to nothing when you baby should have drifted to sleep.

We quickly discovered that while Harry really liked the lights at bedtime, watching and following them – when he woke in the middle of the night (3.20am every night for a bottle) that he couldn’t tolerate the lights as it woke him too much, and to be honest it woke me too.  Now I could never remember to turn the switch to turn off the lights once he was asleep at 7.20pm so I quickly decided that we would use the mobile without the lights.

This is sad as he like the twinkly lights dancing on his ceiling and walls but he is just as happy with watching the bears and stars above his head spinning slowly to the music – these stop after a few tunes so as not to distract from sleep.

We really like this mobile and would definitely recommend it, I really love the way the movement stops after a while and how the music gradually fades away as it makes night feeding so much easier – I actually don’t even get Harry out of the cot, I bend over and give him his bottle in bed and turn the music on, when his bottle is finished I’m able to leave him and his music alone and he resettles, and I can hear the music over the baby monitor so it resettles me too!

Emmy has even been known to climb into his cot to watch the show because quite frankly she is bonkers!

  1. I love this one, this mobile is different. The fact that it plays 30 minutes of Lullabies, Classical Music and Nature sounds and gradually get softer and quieter as the time come on slowing fading to nothing when your baby should have drifted to sleep is amazing. I want one even if it costs 35£
