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.

For the past three weeks, he has been lamenting that school is better than summer break and he wants to see all his friends again.

Our family is in the process of moving to a new house this month as well, so my focus is on getting us settled into the new space. As a result, I won't be writing much on the blog in September but hope to post at least once per month sta…
