Play Mats


We have tile floors throughout our house which is hard on our little guy. We found play mats to layer and provide a cushion between our little one's head and the floor, especially when he was learning how to sit up and tumbling over. I layered two mats on top of each other, the ECR4Kids mat and the rainbow Wonder Mat from Amazon, which worked great, but I also positioned pillows behind him when he was initially learning to sit up. Once he got the hang of it, I removed the pillows.


The ECR4Kids mat has a polyurethane upholstery surface on top that is easy to wipe down and clean, the inside is foam, and the bottom is a thicker more durable material. This mat on its own is not thick enough to protect against my infant's head bumping on the floor, but with the Wonder Mat underneath, I wasn't worried.


The Wonder Mat is made out of a durable, more firm foam material that feels more like a gym floor. It's not soft like the foam in the ECR4Kids mat, but it is definitely softer than the tile floor and creates a protective buffer between my little guys and the hard floor. These mats also keep my little ones warm and more comfortable since the tile is usually cold.


I wanted a larger surface area that was cushioned for my three year old to play on, so, I ended up getting a second Wonder Mat that was one solid color, grey, through Wonder Mat's site ewonderworld.com. They have nine colors to choose from. I was able to attach the rainbow squares to the grey squares and make a large surface for my boys to play on.


What are your favorite things to make the play area more comfortable for your little ones?
