Baby is 3 weeks old, looking for a baby gym/mat but really don't know what's good or not.

Any recommendations??

Thanks :)

They are all very similar to be honest - I wouldn't spend loads - my 3 month old twins use it for a couple of hours a day but once they start crawling they'll be interested in other things

I have one with a soft squishy pillow like base and a selection of things for them to grab at - you can always add more as lots of baby toys have strings or something to tie them to things

I had the Bright Starts 5 in 1 play gym that converts to a little ball pit and has a musical elephant thing that sits on top - thought it was really good. Is £60 in Smyths - not the cheapest but just had a look and the Red Kite Ball Play Gym looks similar and only around £25. Worth it if you plan on using for more babies down the line i'd say.

They’re all pretty similar. The Fisher-Price jungle one is a classic option and you can usually find used ones for sale. Skip Hop is a nice brand if you want something that has a bit of an adult aesthetic to it.

We had the one with a toy bar for our singletons and a jumbo one without for our twins. They're great for tummy time but they got frustrated quite quickly not being able to see around much. They spent more time in their bouncers than on the mat. Once on the move they were not very interested in the playmat.
I think the jumbo is an elc one but over 6 years old now so no longer sold. Toy bar one is a mammas and pappas one we got with our 1st over 15 years ago.
