Here he is: The Messiest Baby In All The Land
But my floors after every meal and snack?
Not so cute. And this was a particularly clean day.
So I bought a yard of PUL (polyurethane laminate), which is a waterproof fabric often used in cloth diapers. It's awesome stuff. Slick on one side so you can wipe it off. Waterproof so liquids don't soak through. Soft and fold-able so I can stash it in my diaper bag for meals out. Plus, machine washable... a necessity! And comes in cute designs and colors. I just got plain old white since it spends a fair amount of time on my dining room floor. Too bad they don't have wood color.
I just rolled up and hemmed the edges and it makes the perfect reusable high chair mat. I've never seen these in stores, only the disposable ones... and do we really need more things to add to landfills?
maybe I need to make a bigger one...
This thing saves my life. Keeps me from vacuuming three times a day. Mopping too. Why does this kid insist on throwing absolutely everything on the floor? And with force! Even supposedly spill-proof sippy cups spill the milk if thrown hard enough. And Beckham has it all figured out.
I just lay this down pre-meal, then shake it off outside after (feed the birds!). I wipe it off, then use it again. When it gets really messy I just throw it in the washer and dryer.
It also makes a great play-doh mat for Ty!
