Play Mat: Is It Really Worth It?

A good friend of mine is expecting her first baby and recently asked me which play mat she should buy. If she had asked me which stroller or which car seat, I could have answered immediately, but the play mat stumped me. I never used a play mat. Instead, I bought this really luxe blanket–for $20!–that I spread out on the floor for tummy time.

My daughter didn’t seem to mind the lack of bells and whistles on her blanket and looking at play mats now, I’m glad to have saved a good chunk of money. But what about you? Did you buy a play mat? If so, do you think it was worth the money?
