Review – The Messy Mat7th November 2015
Weaning is messy, especially when your baby decides that throwing food on the floor is an extremely funny thing to do. In your own home it is annoying, when at a friend or relatives home it can be embarrassing, especially if they are eating something like jam on toast. Thankfully there is a simple, and actually quite pretty, solution to keeping the floor clean in the form of The Messy Mat.
The Messy Mat is such a simple yet genius idea. The hard wearing oil cloth mat folds up nicely so is easily transportable, both the fabric and hems are wipeable, I tend to just wipe it over with a wet wipe once Aria has finished eating/throwing food. Measuring 90×120 centimetres it covers a larger area than Aria can throw meaning that it does catch every bit of food.
I absolutely love this mat, it came in handy on our recent cottage holiday as it meant that I didn’t have to worry about her making a mess of the beautiful wood flooring. I allowed her to make as much mess as she wanted and then just shook the mat above the bin and wiped over with a wet wipe. If wiping it over doesn’t do the trick it is suitable for occasional machine washing at 30 º C.
As well as being used under a baby’s chair during meal times The Messy Mat would make a great picnic blanket or floor protector during messy playtimes.
