For those of you that have toddlers or are expecting, placing soft floor mats in dodgy areas of your home can stave off some of the hazards that pose a threat to your little loved ones!
Today we have to be conscious, more than ever, of any and every potential risk that could endanger our kids. We place rubber bumpers on absolutely every edge, dull or sharp, to protect our kids from getting jabbed or poked. We set up baby-proofed gates at absolutely every door threshold in our house, giving a kid no other option than to stay put. Some of us even install baby-proof locks on our toilet to halt any infantile diving expeditions! Baby proofing our houses is an industry on its own!
Granted, our child care seems to have taken a paranoid, or even obsessive-compulsive, turn but we all know it’s only for the best. Prevention is always the best cure and we don’t want to wait for our kids to hurt themselves before acknowledging a threat.

Here are some applications of where you could lay down soft floor mats:
You can get creative with the uses of soft floor mats but the most important function is to ensure your child’s safety from harmful and potentially injurious slips and falls. Invest in soft mats to keep your child nestled in your arms rather than crying in an emergency room.
