i dun hav a dog, but i hav a cat. so far i dun hav any problems wif my cat wanting to lie on my bumper mat. i think she's also scared of the mat...keke. but sometimes she stands by the edge and looks as if she wans to go in...i will then tell her NO. guess also hav to train ur pets bah.
the bumper mat i find is really one of my best buys...though initially i find a bit ex. my boy sits and plays on it - not saying he doesn't sit and play elsewhere - but he knows that the mat is HIS place. i also towel him on the mat, change diapers on the mat, feed on the mat.
I bought this bumper playmat (the Yellow Bear) ~ 1 month ago, but my mum thinks tat it will be painful if baby falls on the mat from crawling or sitting position, so she's currently placing a mattress below the mat for extra cushioning.
has anyone experience baby falling from sitting or crawling position? is it ok that the baby will not injure the head? pls advise.....
i dun think it will b painful bcos i tried to fall on it myself. i dun think u should worry so much abt bb falling while crawling. if u think mattress is safer then u shouldn't hv waste $$ buying the mat. sorry if u think i'm too direct.
regarding bumper mat...we got 1 3 weeks back...yes exp...but the usuage is great for the mat...our baby learning to crawl, flip and we parents fall asleep on the mat...really nice to use...
hi cutie_jace...no advisable to place another mattress below...though might be of more cushions...but dangerous...the reason we get this bumper mat is becos dun want our baby to be a raised ground...please reconsider abt the mattress...if the bumper mat is of high density...the baby fall down shd not feel any pain...
1. Can the bumper playmat be used as a sleep mat too ?
2. How is the cushion like ? will it protect the baby in case he/she falls over while flipping over, crawling or sitting down ?
3. What is a ABC playmat ? Any pics to show ?
I got a Pooh playmat but this looks like a jigsaw puzzle that I have to unstack to form. And its made of styrofoam kinda material. I dun think this is good right for a 6-9 mth baby ?
Of course you can sleep on the mat. Sometimes I take a nap on it. And I will sit on the mat to watch TV and at the same time watching over my BB.
The cushion is well cushion enough not to hurt the BB but they will still cry due to the shock and not the pain, I feel. Prices varies depending on the thickness and size of the mat.
The ABC mat is also like a jigsaw puzzle style with different colour. In each jigsaw they have a letter like A B C to Z and these can be removed. Suitable for older BB actually and they are also foam type material which I also agree it is not good for a baby. As long as they don't lick, eat it, should be fine.
If $$$ is your concern, foam mat should be good enough too.
just my two cents. I didnt want to spend too much on it - so i bought the ABC jigsaw puzzle type. Its rough and smells on I put carpet on top. works just fine.
I find it a chore to clean it though somehow stuff eg. dust, little crumbs gets underneath thru the cracks and when the kids take some parts apart to play. I have to dismantle all to clean it. I decided its not worth the trouble. Worse when baby started to eat - food gets on the carpet.
so kept the carpet, and bought the $80 playmat. the one with cartoon on top which must roll, cannot fold. this was gd except that 1) I have a cat, she likes to scratch ie
2) the texture is rough, when food drops on it. I try to wipe it off, the food gets mashed further into little pieces, stuck in the little grooves
so guess what ? I go buy the expensive bumper mat. so far happy with it.
I have just rec my LG bumper mat and I am really happy with it. My boy is crawling happily on it and I am not afraid that he will fall out of it as its not too thick. On top of it, the cushioning is good as its helpful in protecting my boy whenever he falls on his head. The playmat is so colourful that he is so attracted to it. Moreover, there are words on it and can make use of it to teach my boy simple words. It is easy to clean too. All in all, we love it a lot!!! Its a good buy.
I got my LG playmat for some time. Using it in the bedroom and ABC mat in the living room. Its different from the mat sold at Tiny Toons. Tiny Toons is sort of like foam mat with a picture on the surface.
If your on tight budget, ABC mat is a better buy than the Tiny Toon mat.
ya I like to play and lie around the 15mm playmat with my baby boy, 1 disadvantage....
not so easy to lift up when vacuming...i place it at my 4-room flat living room...so a bit crump if you dun want to step on it ,highly recommend to people who had babies.
