The Nurture Smart™ Baby Mirror was designed for hospitals and can be an excellent tool to capture a baby's attention, distract them when necessary and keep them calm while advancing their visual & cognitive development, improving motor skills and enhancing emotional and social development.

Sensory Development Features

The extra-large mirror is perfect for developing vision in babies and helping stimulate both engagement and brain development as the baby grows.

A mirror on one side and black-and-white raised images on the other helps maintain curiosity and interest, supporting the cognitive process of "object permanence".

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do pediatric hospitals love our baby mirror?

Our baby mirror is the only baby mirror designed to meet the rigorous safety and child development standards required by hospitals. These same baby mirror features are equally important when the baby goes home. Hospitals do not allow cloth parts that could create a choking hazard or strings that could entangle a baby or fabric that can harbor bacteria and viruses. The Nurture Smartᵀᴹ baby mirror is easily cleaned and disinfected, helping to prevent flu, RSV and other germs from transferring to the baby, and the exceptional developmental features are doctor-designed.

Why choose the Nurture Smartᵀᴹ baby mirror?

The Nurture Smartᵀᴹ portable baby mirror was doctor-designed in collaboration with hospital Child Life Specialists. Our baby mirror can be a crib mirror, bassinet mirror, play-yard mirror or floor mirror. The large size and black-and-white raised graphics provide an exceptional developmental and sensory toy experience for a baby and the attachment loops at the top allow you to secure it in an upright position for easy viewing.

Why is a baby mirror important?

Nothing is more enticing to babies than the human face. Babies love to look at faces and can be mesmerized by their own. Mirror images help babies learn how to focus their eyes, follow images, learn new words and explore the wonderful things a face can do. Enjoying one’s own blinking, smiling image in a mirror is an important social and emotional milestone that babies tend to achieve during the first year. By gazing at themselves and their loved ones in a mirror, a baby can learn to identify familiar faces, track movements and even develop their tiny muscles as they reach and roll toward their reflection. And, if you talk to the baby while showing parts of your face in front of the mirror, you’ll help boost their language skills.

Can a baby mirror help with tummy time?

The fascination babies have with their mirror reflection can be a strong motivator for tummy time duration and other muscle-building exercises. Nurture Smart’s large baby mirror propped against a wall or pillow can motivate tummy time, sit time duration and physical activity that will help build the muscles and coordination necessary for crawling and walking.

What other features does the Nurture Smartᵀᴹ baby mirror offer?

This baby mirror includes bold black and white graphics both around the mirror and on the back. Young babies have difficulty distinguishing color and are much more attracted to black-and-white images. Our graphic designs around the mirror add to the visual attraction of the mirror and our artist-designed graphics on the reverse side of the mirror provide an interesting visual alternative for a baby to focus on. These designs are all raised to provide both added visual stimulation and tactile stimulation rewarding the baby when they touch the mirror.

What is the appropriate age range for using the Nurture Smartᵀᴹ baby mirror?

Our baby mirror is designed for babies 0 – 10 months old. However, after this time the decorative baby mirror can be hung on a wall in the baby's room.
