If you currently have a growing babe in your charge, you’ll know that mealtime is a war against all kinds of mess. It’s a losing game against food bits flung onto tables and chairs, food slop being spit out onto clothing or the floor, or overturned dishes and cutlery strewn everywhere. However, with the right tools, you could be way more prepared for this. We’re recommending 5 products you should consider owning for your baby at meal time! Think ahead and the mess will be less!
EZPZ Happy Mat
The ezpz Happy Mat is an all-in-one silicone placemat and plate that comes with suction functions, which means you can adhere it to the table. Not only does it promote motor functions in your little eater, it is also wipe-down frienldy and dishwasher and microwave safe, making it easy to prep with and clean up with after. Never worry about bowls and plates flying off the table with this option!
Nuby Floor Mat
Preempt the floor mess with the Nuby Multi-Purpose Floor Mat, a waterproof floor protector you can place under the high chair, or just in the general vicinity of the dining table where your enthusiastic eater might be seated. Sporting a 50 inch diameter, it should catch the majority of food crumbs or spills. Just pick it up, shake it off outside, and wash in the dishwasher or sink and voila, clean floors again!
Boon Squirt Silcone Spoon
This Boon Squirt Baby Food Dispensing Spoon is a must-have product for all the mommies who are on that to-go life! Complete with a cap for storage when not in use, this spoon can hold up to 3 ounces of baby food at once, dispensing it in bite-sized amounts for your baby at meal time anywhere. It’s a great option to have for the car, the restaurant or the mall! It’s dishwasher safe and can be boiled for an extra deep clean.
Bibs are the staple of every toddler’s wardrobe. But which bibs? We recommend a double combination of the Sleeved Bib plus Soft Bib for maximum coverage. Slip your babe’s arms into the sleeves, and clip the soft bib over to catch crumbs and other food messes that might dribble down the chin.Both bibs are easy to wipe down, and are machine and dishwasher safe. You might save on a second set of clothing and extra rounds of laundering afterward!
Munchkin Miracle Sippy Cup
If you’re looking to take your kid off the bottle and wondering what to go with next, we have the answer. Goodbye conventional sippy cups. The Munchkin Miracle 360 Sippy Cup features a no-spout, dentist-approved design that automatically seals when your child is not taking a drink. They are spill-resistant and can take some sporadic child violence well, and are easy to take apart and clean. What more could one ask for? Maybe handles? They’ve got that covered too.
A few smart products can go really far in the daily grind of parenting. We all know that baby at meal time can be a true (adorable) monster. It helps to have options at hand to help when the messes just keep reappearing, and the baby has decided that today’s meal is just not to their taste. We know it’s exhausting but deeply necessary and wonderful work.
