We absolutely love this mat! It is extremely comfortable. It has the right amount of cushioning to it without it being too "squishy". It's perfect for my 9 month old daughter. We were using foam tiles as a mat before but as a curious kid, she kept pulling them apart. Also, with the foam tiles, it was very difficult to clean her drool and spit up due to the cracks. This mat is so much easier to clean, since it's one piece. We are considering getting another one for our home gym to use for floor exercises.
