Babies spend a ton of time on the floor. That’s where they progress with their gross motor skills, play with their toys, and gradually learn about independence. Frequent, regular floor play, particularly on their tummies, is awesome for our little ones, and is one of the best things we can do to support their development (that, and, paradoxically, holding and cuddling them the rest of the time ;).
So with the amount of time our babies spend on the floor, it’s so important that they have a safe, non-toxic space to play. Unfortunately, the common foam play mats from the days of yore do not provide them with that safe space.
