Underfoot (& Knees) Comfort
*This is a sponsored post, but as always all opinions are mine all mine!
Chickadee started crawling around 9 months. It was amazing, one day she was barely scooting along and the next day she was ready to race laps around the Indy Speedway. She would be sponsored by Pampers of course :) Well our play space is also our living room and we needed to made it functional for everyone (especially the baby, because let’s face it….we cater to that sweet little one on a daily basis!).
We had a woven rug that wasn’t the softest and a HUGE coffee table with nice sharp corners. Both HAD to go. We replaced the chunky ottoman with this great padded, rectangle ottoman that I found on sale at TJMaxx. It is perfect because it doesn’t take up all of our playing space, it’s soft, and it has storage inside. Triple success!
The rug I also LOVE and found on sale for less than $100…yes I know, I was so excited to find such a great deal. While the top is soft it is not a very thick rug, so it wasn’t protecting baby girl’s knees very well as she practices for her NASCAR debut.
The folks at Rug Pad Corner and I must have ESP because just as we were realizing this concern I got an email from them asking if I wanted to try out one of their rug pads. Ummm, YES PLEASE!
They were absolutely great. They took my measurements and cut the rug pad down to the perfect size. It arrived on my door step looking like this
& I was like, ummmm it’s a little small. But once I unpacked it I realized that was because it was folded in half. It popped right open and was flat almost immediately.
So I rolled up our rug and laid out the pad. After rolling our rug back out I cued the heavenly music as I walked upon what seemed liked clouds. And Chickadee’s knees are now nice and protected! I went with the 3/8″ thickness to achieve this cushion.
We love this rug pad, I am going to have to do something to help it stay in place a little better as it sometimes likes to move around but the rug pad definitely solved our hardness problem. Another plus is their high GREEN standards, especially since baby girl would be down on the group near the rug pad. Rug Pad Corner was a great company to work with and are not always helping out bloggers but also are diligent in donating a portion of their sales to charities through their Rug Pad for a Cause campaigns.
Now to find another storage solution for all those toys!!
