After I had my daughter and we packed away all of her gear from when she was a baby our basement flooded and more than half of her things were ruined. So, when I found out I was pregnant with Cooper, I slowly started to pick up little things here and there that I new would be useful. Enter the Tiny Love Under the Sea Tummy Time Mat
This mat is so cute. I love the colors and its quality, washable material makes it perfect for more than one baby. I also love how all the pieces can be used independently of each other: the mat, the pillow, the toy attached to the pillow and the mirror. Now, most people start using mats for tummy time for a few minutes per day to increase baby’s neck strength. Not Cooper. Kid hates tummy time and would only do it while I was laying down and he was on top of me and even then he was done after 30 seconds. So, we waited and waited and waited and at 5 months old he started to tolerate being on any mat for longer than 2 minutes. I call that a success.
As you can see, he loves it! He is really captivated by the colors and loves the noises the eyes and claws make. One of the claws has a rattle inside that baby can shake until his or her hearts content and the other one as a toy attached that babies will love to chew on.
Did you know the Tiny Love Tummy Time Mat also grows with your baby? Cooper is quiet sitting on his own yet so we still rely on the Bumbo, but the cute crab pillow is the perfect size to fit around his waist so he can play while sitting up (because he still hates being on his tummy).
The price point ($29.99) is in the perfect range for a baby shower gift and is very neutral regardless of the sex of the baby you’re shopping for!
