Alternatives To Bath Mats

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: Putting our baby in our bathtub is the equivalent of putting a bar of soap on a sheet of ice. It is slippery! So, our first solution was to get a bath mat. Easy fix. The problem came when we realized how fast and furiously mold, mildew and more grows on the bottom! Eeeek! So, now I'm wondering what other moms use. Do bath stickers/treads work better? I'm worried mold will grow just the same on those. Any advice would be helpful before we drop another $15 on something. Thanks so much!
