What are Squishy Mats?
Squishy Mats are portable, easy to clean, and contain almost one inch of Memory Foam — creating a soft spot for all your precious cargo. The surface of each mat is covered by a super soft, micro-flannel fabric and is backed with a nonslip rubber grid. Built in handle for ease of storage and travel.
BUT in my own personal opinion, a Squishy Mat is a baby’s best friend and a mamas ideal changing mat. I have now three babies and two out of the three absolutely dreaded the public restroom diaper change station. I can’t really blame them because I think I would freak out and cry hysterically if I was laid on a floating hard piece of plastic. But alas comes the squishy mat. It is portable and fits in the diaper bag without any effort or fuss. It is easy to unfold and just as easy to fold back up again and Velcro shut. Memory foam for babies is completely a dream. I mean, after spending nine months in a squishy comfy womb and then coming out into the real world, that’s hard enough. They don’t need to be laid on a hard floor or changing table for that matter and make an uncomfortable time like diaper changing even more uncomfortable. My sweet baby girl does not cry for any diaper changes anymore.
I actually get smiles when I lay her down on the squishy mat. When I first received the mat (as you can see in the pictures below) my sweet girl actually napped on the mat I laid her down and she fell right asleep instantly.
