In the final trimester of pregnancy when that magical nesting instinct kicks in, it’s normal to go a little, well, overboard. You might scrub the baseboards (despite the belly you have to contend with to reach them). Or take on the grime-ridden grout in the bathroom (with a toothbrush no less). It’s likely you’ll analyze every inch of your home—inside and out—to ensure everything’s up to snuff for your newest family member and all the visitors who are sure to show up after the little guy makes his debut.
If dusting and mopping is your thing, by all means, go for it. But if shopping for a new doormat to stand on during that “Welcome home” photo you take with baby in car seat in hand or to greet your beloved, life-saving friends and family as they drop off home-cooked meals and take on baby duty while you shower or snooze, look no further. We have 12 eligible mats suited to handle these matters (ahem) of utmost importance.
