Trying out travel placemats

Eating out with Henry can be a messy business, so I'm always on the lookout for ways to make it a little less so. Recently, we tried out two different types of placements designed for kids. Since Henry is still practicing how to eat from a bowl or plate, a placemat helps to make clean-up easier. Also, sometimes Henry wants to chew on the edge of the table, so a placemat helps protect the table from his sharp teeth.

The first product we tried was the TinyDiner Placemat. This item receives rave reviews from other baby-led weaning families so I thought we should give it a try. This placemat has suction cups along the sides to help it stay on the table and a catch tray along the front edge to collect dropped items.

Feeding Our Family at Disneyland - Rides and Sweets Treats

A Disney trip just isn't complete without a few sugary goodies and we definitely found our share of desserts. I don't talk much about desserts on this blog, but Henry wanted to make sure we included his favorite Disney treats, as well as his top ride recommendations for preschoolers.

After spending all day walking through the parks, it was enjoyable to end each day with a special sweet. Some we shared, and others Henry got to eat on his own.
