I have two of these already. While my baby was going through baby led weaning, this was perfect for the times we ate out at restaurants. He didn't have to eat off a dirty table and the little catch-all at the bottom helped prevent an otherwise massive mess underneath his high chair. My only qualm would be the suction cups because he likes to pull the mat up. But I don't think that can be avoided!
I have had one of these since my first born 9 years ago and am still using it with all of my other babes! I got one for my nephew-I think is a must for a little one!
Awesome for eating out. Baby likes to play with it and doesn't always stick best, but minor. Find it rolls up when washing too but still pretty easy. Well worth it for price and if you have a finger food loving little one. Great product over all.
I really like this product. It has helped keep my table and floors so much cleaner. An added bonus is that it keeps plastic bowls from sliding when my toddler is scooping food from it. He used to have to chase the bowl around the table with the spoon but now it stays put on the place mat. It sticks very well to my wooden table and is easily cleaned with a quick scrub and rinse at the kitchen sink.
Easy to clean just rinse under the sink. Portable enough for any bag and gives then a clean enviro to learn to eat finger food
Suction cups not all that suck-y and the colour is kind of livid. Also, not dishwasher safe (at least, it doesn't seem to be recommended). Other than that it works okay, provides a clean surface for the baby to eat from when we're out and about and rolls up and stores fine. I also have an oogaa silicone placemat which works just as well for us and is dishwasher safe.
I had one of these for my older son, now three, and LOVED it. Rolls compactly for travel, the trough catches the getaway bits, suction cupped securely to any flat surface and we even loved the graphics (cow jumping over the moon, dish running away with spoon, yadda yadda). Great for restaurants -- I was a waitress for years and I don't trust the cleanliness of the tables. I scoured the internet to find two more for my now 13 mo. old twins. These ones are just not quite the same. The material is quite stiff, and while the trough is still effective, the suction cups are not. The twins peel these up off the table, making the mess even bigger (if that's possible). I hoped that they would become more supple with use, but it doesn't look good. Funny how a small thing makes a huge difference. If you see these in person, check the pliability -- if they're soft, I endorse them highly. If they are stiff, I don't.
I would recommend buying this as it is really useful when out and about with your little one. It sticks onto most restaurant tables and catches all the bits that get dropped. Mine has stained a bit with some darker food but it wipes up no problem. Easy to roll up. I was surprised this product actually worked!
