Busy Baby Mat: Product Review


Being a busy mom on the go or a busy mom at home, there are times you need something to help keep the little one’s hands occupied when they are expected to sit. The Busy Baby Mat is the perfect solution for just that. Living in a world with COVID-19 this mat is truly a saving grace to provide a germ free surface for our babies’ busy hands.

There have been so many times with my two children that we have been sitting in a shopping cart, dining at a restaurant, or sitting down for a family meal and they play the dreaded game of “I throw the toy/food and you pick it up.” I knew this mat would be the perfect solution for this cat and mouse game. 

The Busy Baby Mat is a bendable food grade silicone mat. It has a tether system so you can attach toys to the mat using their silicone tethers. Did I mention these tethers by themselves are my teething baby’s favorite to munch on? 

The mat is so easy to use. The bottom suction cups to a clean surface and the tethers attach right to the corners of the mat. There is a top portion that is great for holding food and below that is an expansive flat surface to play with toys, draw on with washable markers, or spread out food. I love how easy it is to clean and it’s an added bonus that it’s dishwasher safe. 

What’s truly great is the mat is made to travel. Just stick the tethers on top, roll it up, and slide it into the travel sleeve! It will truly save you time and sanity and give you a piece of mind that they are eating off a germless surface. 

The great thing about its flexibility is that it doesn’t have to be used just as a flat mat. One of the neatest features is how you can roll it up and attach it to the handle of a shopping cart.  Attach a few tethers and toys and your baby hands and mind are busy while you shop at the store.

I love that such an ingenious and helpful product was created by a working mom and I am all about supporting other moms. You can find out more information about the founder, the mat, and how to purchase the Busy Baby Mat at https://busybabymat.com/.

Thank you to Busy Baby Mat for providing this product for review.

I was born in Denver but I have grown up in Arizona almost my whole life. I live in Gilbert with my beautiful son Paul who is 4 and a half, my 18 month old son Finn, my silly pit bull Armani, and my amazing husband Ryan. We have been married 4 years but have known each other since middle school. He truly is my best friend and better half. I went to Arizona State University for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees in education. I was an elementary school teacher for 10 years in Mesa Public Schools and currently teach in the Kyrene School District in fourth grade. I love to play dodgeball. Yep, dodgeball. It started out as just a fun recreational league but have started to train and travel tournaments around the country. This is something I truly miss during Covid.
