This playmat is super soft and padded
When my son started rolling over and crawling I was always afraid that he would fall and get injured. Being a first time mom, I wanted to ensure that he would not be getting any bumps and bruises that were able to be avoided. I purchased this in the hopes that it would not only cushion any falls but also be fun for him to play with. This mat has worked better than I could have expected. It is around a half an inch thick and has little grooves all over the surface of the mat. When I first received it in the mail it had a very strong chemical smell but there was a label that warned me about this. I set it outside on the porch to air out and left it overnight. In the morning there was not even a faint chemical scent.
Baby loves this playmat
My son was four months old when I purchased the Baby Care playmat and the moment I set him on the mat he started getting excited about all the bright colors. I use it for tummy time a lot because he tends to last longer and get a better exercise if he has brightly colored animals to look at. Now that he is crawling I find it really helpful that this mat is so large and he usually stays on it whether he’s crawling around or pointing to the animals on it. My favorite part of this entire may is how easy it is to clean. With the puzzle piece mats, if something gets spilled you have to pick up every single piece and wipe it and around it. I have spilled things on this mat and all that I have to do is take a disinfecting wipe and wipe it down. Even though it has grooves, a simple wipe-down gets this mat completely clean.
Some ways Baby Care could improve
If this playmat is used heavily for an extended period of time you will experience some indenting. This does not bother me in the least because it will regain it’s shape in a little while but a friend of mine who has the same mat hates that this happens. I would just advise to keep that in mind if you are considering purchasing this mat. In my opinion you will probably run into this problem with any playmat that is as thick as this one is. One other problem I have run into with this mat is that if the house is cold the mat gets cold to the touch. This is because of the material it is made of but when it is cold I am hesitant to put my son on it because I worry that he will get a chill. I just make sure to keep his nursery at a warm temperature to avoid this issue and if I do find that it is cold we wait until it warm us to use this mat.
This mat is a great investment
I definitely think that this mat is a great investment because you can use it from the time that the baby is doing tummy time until he is a toddler. It has served me well and I am sure that it will continue to do so until my child outgrows it. I am excited to see how it grows with him and he learns to explore it even more and I will definitely be using this playmat with my next child. This is very high on my list of recommended baby products to purchase or put on your registry.
