I'm looking for one of those rubber mats that's sticks to the bottom of the bath tub.
We have a very long tub and dd is starting to climb out of her bath seat so it's freedom time but I'm worried about her slipping over in the tub!
Any ideas?...

When we were looking we couldn't find them anywhere - we ended up buying the no slip stickers for the bath (different animals) and this has worked well (it has been over three years now).  They are easy to remove and don't leave marks, we purchased them in Big W.

I have seen the mats in spotlight - but couldn't when we were looking.

I bought an extra long one at Kmart with no problems. It still didn't reach the entire length of  the tub but went most of the way.

A lot of the cheap shops have rubber bath mats. Not long ones but you could use two?

At Clarks Rubber they sell it by the metre so you can buy as long as you need. We got this industrial strength one designed for wet areas that won't go mouldy (my pet hate with bath mats!), non slip and goes in the washing machine. It was $40/m for a 1.2m wide roll I think. Pricey but well worth it!

We got ours from Homeart.  It has cute little yellow duckies on it and fits most of the length of the bath.

As a PP suggested, I bought two smaller ones.  Since I usually bath both kids at once, this gives them each their 'own' bathmat and, in times of argument, 'their' side is clearly marked out.

I have seen some kiddy ones (not sure how long) at Toys'r'Us, but I ended up buying one from Howards Storage World. They had them in "clear" and blue. Pricey but I didn't want kiddy characters all over it.

I bought mine from Spotlight but have seen them cheaper in Kmart.

I got a blue one from one of those cheap shops and it was so slippery, worse than the bottom of the bath!!  I then got one from spotlight which was great but did end up mouldy after about 8months (not taking it out of bath when kids were finished to let the bottom of it dry)  The one i have now is from Bunnings and seems to be really good so far!!

HOpe this helped biggrin.gif

It doesn't cover the whole length of the bath but most of it, I've just stuck on those non slip stickers in the parts not covered by the mat but you could always get two.

I saw some at BIG W the other day and Aldi had them as a special buy few weeks ago. They were around $9.
