Non-Slip Technology. I couldn’t emphasize enough how important this feature is. After all, the main purpose of a bathtub mat is to minimize slips and falls, right? Hence, it is already a given that the best baby bath mat should have a non-slip technology. This could be in a form of high-suction cups or in a strong grip surface and material.
For your little one, you can opt for either a standalone potty or a seat reducer. Now a standalone potty seat can be used if you do not want your toddler to take over the toilet for a long time, and you want to give him the potty time anywhere in the house. Seat reducers, however, fit on a traditional commode and reduce the ring to a comfortable size for the toddler. These are less expensive, and saves time to transition from a standalone potty to the regular adult toilet. Plus, the stools can be simply flushed out. Seat reducer potty seats can be great for families that have more than one bathroom, or the kids love to imitate the older kids. However, the type of potty depends on your child’s readiness and so it is best to take your child for shopping for it. Size matters a lot when you are buying a potty seat, so if you are not taking your toddler out, make sure you have the sizes.
Some bath mats are being offered with a self-adhesive and rough textured surface to provide better grip and adhesion to the tub flooring. If you and your baby share the same bathtub, it’s best to stick to self-adhesive, non-slip type whereas you can opt for a textured surface if only adults will use the tub. This is because the rough texture may not sit well with babies and may irritate their skin.
Temperature Indicator. Some bathtub models have a drain plug or temperature strip that changes color when the water is too hot for a baby. Others have digital readouts. You can also buy separate temperature indicators. Indicators can be useful, but it‵s best to double check the temperature by testing the water with your forearm before putting your baby into the tub or rinsing him off. It should feel comfortably warm. Your forearm is more sensitive than your hand, so it will give you a better sense of whether the water temperature is in a good range for your baby´s sensitive skin.
