Also you cannot wash it,so useless if potty training and as for vomit(!)The other thing i found is that if they fall on it it can really burn plus really took the skin off ds2's knees when crwling.It was here when we moved here and I thought it looked lovelly but having lived with it i would never have it again!

its just for the stairs philly....would that make a difference or do you think it just isnt suitable?

Malory was talking about sisal/coir for stairs here
I thought it would be slippy but apparently there are some which are stair suitable.
