Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

It may just give you 5 minutes of peace, but with a new baby in the house, that time on the play mat seem like a real gift. Baby play mats offer bright colored, stimulating experiences for a developing baby’s mind. Most come with a theme and have a hanging system of toys or lights for baby to reach for, look at, bop, kick, and chew. Some baby mats play music or make noise in response to your baby’s actions. Those that have a bright colored floor mat will help keep baby interested in tummy time longer by giving him or her something interesting to look at. Think about possibly getting one designed to keep sitters, crawlers, or even walkers entertained as well as interest babies on their backs. Babies love the play mats that allow them to get a response from their kicks.
