Bathmats stop your child from slipping in the bath.
They are available through a partnership between Water Safety New Zealand and Plunket where they are distributed at 6 month check.
If you cant get a bathmat through Plunket, you can get them at the local baby retailer or chain stores. They are an investment in your child's safety.
