Babies are recommended to have tummy time on a regular basis to enhance skills such as head lifting, rolling over, etc.
Most of the time we just throw a blanket on the floor and let me have their tummy time. Have you ever thought, is it soft enough where you put them for tummy time?
Baby J thought of it and came up with a GREAT solution to our problems. They invented the wonderful Baby J padded baby play mat. This play mat is a 29 inch x 35 inch cushioned play mat with super soft minky fabric on one side and cute fabric on the other side.
It comes with a velcro patch to keep it rolled up. It almost remind me of a sleeping bag once it is rolled up.
It took me a while how to figure out how to fold the play mat back up. I would suggest to the company to add a paper in the package they send you. It would make it easier. Luckily I was able to figure out so to fold it back up the way I got it.
Here are my steps of how I put it back together:
1. Lay the play mat minky side up, fabric side down.
2. Fold in half hot dog style
3. Start rolling like a sleeping bag from the right side. (Opposite side from the velcro strap.)
4. Take the strap and the velcro should be rolled up to a point where you can take the velcro strap and strap it.
I have included in the above picture of how I did it. That way once you get your mat you won’t have to wonder on how to fold it back up. 🙂
This is what it should look like all folded up. It makes it easy to carry and can easily fit in a bag if you wanted to take it with you anywhere. Or it would fit in the stroller if you took it to the park or any other place.
Baby J has more than just the normal play mat. They sell an extra large play mat that is 58×58 inches.
They also sell burp clothes and bibs. You can purchase these in a set of 3 different vibrant fabric choices. Or you can buy a gift set which comes with a play mat, bib, and burp cloth.
They sent me a matching bib and burp cloth with my play mat.
The Baby J padded play mat will be perfect for my son when he arrives. This play mat was Mom invented and I must say, it’s a great piece of work. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has a baby who LOVES tummy time. This is the perfect match, and your baby will thank you.
