Is black the perfect colour for the nursery or what?
By Becca Smith, moKee Ambassador and Mother of one with Baby Number 2 on the way
Black Friday is here and if you are expecting a baby then moKee are here to help you prepare with some new products that are designed in baby’s favourite colour – black!
There are so many surprises about a baby’s development and when I had my son I was shocked to learn that baby’s love the colour black! Why had I bothered buying everything in bright colours then?!
According to research, a baby's colour perception is limited at birth with them only being able to focus on objects 8 to 10 inches away. Between 1 and 3 months old their eyesight continually develops in quality and range, although it’s still quite limited. Babies should begin to follow moving objects with their eyes and reach for things at around three months of age.
As young eyes are developing and learning to focus on the world around them, black and white books with simple lines and bold patterns are easier for babies to see. These bold images stand out against a typically blurry world.
It is not until around the fifth month that the eyes are capable of working together to form a three-dimensional view of the world and begin to see in depth.
So what’s better than the launch of new moKee products made in black and white? moKee are bringing out an exclusive Deep Black Mini Cot, a black and white changing mat.
Monochrome is gender neutral- so perfect if you don’t know the gender of the baby. You can always add hints of pink or blue once the baby arrives. Parents are definitely embracing monochrome so why not take a look at moKee for limited edition products and exclusive discounts. There’s also a range of free gifts that come with orders, so get ready and enjoy Black Friday!
