How does the mat stick to the table?

There are four suction cups on the bottom of the mat that will perfectly stick and withstand any toddler strength! It is best on smooth surfaces (this includes the bathtub walls, refrigerators, and windows)! If the surface is not completely smooth, like an oak table, you will not find a suction cup that will stick. Also, be sure your mat and the surface are clean. Dust and debris will prevent the mat from sticking as well as it should.

Does the Busy Baby Mat fit in diaper bags and purses? 

YES! The mat and tethers roll up into a convenient sleeve that fits into most diaper bags and purses. Rolled up, the mat is approximately 12'' long and 3'' in diameter. It weighs less than half a pound so it won't weigh you down!


What is the best way to roll my mat up?

The best way to roll the Busy Baby Mat is to keep the suction cups on the inside. That way, when unrolling the mat next time, the outer edges will stay flat to the surface.

Here's a short video that shows you how to roll the mat and store it in the sleeve.

Taking care of an infant or toddler is hard enough! We want your experience with Busy Baby to be as simple as possible. If you are unhappy with your product, simply reach out to us at info@busybabymat.com and we'll work with you to make it right!


Do you ship outside of the U.S.?

We will ship internationally, however Busy Baby is just getting started and only has distribution in the United States at this time. The shipping charges from the US are quite high for one mat.  For most countries, ordering 4-5 mats is the best option because the flat rate shipping cost is only a few dollars more than the shipping cost for a single mat. Gather some friends who want a mat too and you can split the shipping cost!  If you do not see your country available for shipping, send us an email and we'll get you added!
