Can I use a mobile that screws into the the side of the cot? Is this safe?

Hi Kaylee,

Thank you for contacting Red Nose with your question.

Red Nose does not have any specific information about the use of these products for newborns.
However, it is important to remember that, as the baby grows, some of these products can be reached by baby who may be able to pull them
& risk being entangled in the string or break creating potential risk if there are small objects in the mobile.

Red Nose also has this information:

It is often assumed that all nursery products sold in retail stores must be safe, however many products have never been formally tested so it can be difficult to tell what is safe for your child.

Anything that makes it hard to see the baby in a safe sleeping product (e.g. curtains, mobiles, high box sides) should be avoided.
