One of the things I'm most looking forward to using when The Bundle is born is my Oshi Mat!
I admit that I am one of those slightly germaphophic mammas. I don't go overboard (I don't think), but my kids always have to wash their hands as soon as they come home (from school, play or anywhere), I had to change their clothes before taking a nap if they were playing at the park (no germy clothes in their beds), and I wiped down shopping carts or restaurant high chairs before placing them in it.
For baby "playdates" we always had the "okay-to-be-on-the-floor" blankets that I would spread out underneath them, and those got washed as soon as we got home.
WHY I LOVE THE OSHI MAT CONCEPT
Oshi mat is an environment friendly, recyclable, easy to clean, non- toxic foam mat designed for infants. It is made 100% of Thermal Plastic Elastomer (TPE); which means, it is 100% PVC and Latex FREE!
Oshi mat has a wide range of uses ranging from developmental classes –like music class, mom and baby stimulation class-, to a travel mat, changing mat, play-date mat, outing mat, tummy time mat and many more!
It is light weight, water repellant, and cold resistant. Because it is moisture free, it does not allow bacteria to store. Oshi mat's density and material provide excellent comfort and support for your baby.
Could I just use a blanket? Sure, but I like the idea of having a dedicated (comfy, cushy) mat that I can take from place to place. And I like that I can wipe it down when I'm done. I'll let you know how it goes.
