My first son would pry the bamboo bowl with the suction cup right off the table, or spend the entire meal trying to loosen it, so I thought this mat might work better for my younger son. Almost immediately he started flipping it over or throwing it off the table, although admittedly he is doing that less over time. I guess those little guys just like to make a mess no matter what kind of fancy stuff you buy them.
I had purchases these mats for my own little one before deciding to purchase them as a gift for a mom-to-be. These are easy to clean and help keep all my daughter's food within reach so she can feed herself.
These are super cute and super easy to clean. My son figured out pretty quickly how to pick it up, though, so it can be a mess when he does.
