I discovered this product with my first child and absolutley loved it! It is a placemat you can take with you when you go out to a restaurant with your baby/toddler. If you have, or even have been out to dinner with someone with small children, you know all too well how difficult it can be to keep the plate on the table! Baby always ends up picking it up, dropping all the food and or throwing the plate on the ground. This will prevent all that which makes for a much more peaceful dining experience for everyone!
Summer Infant has developed the "Tiny Diner" placemat. It is a portable placemat that you put on the table, securing it with suction cups on the bottom, that allows for a clean, non-movable place for your baby/toddler's food. It even has a catch tray that hangs over the edge of the table to catch what baby drops so that food doesn't end up in his or her lap. When meal time is over simply wipe it clean, roll it up, stick it in the diaper bag and wash when you get home.
According to Babies R Us this product has won the JPMA Show Off / Innovation Award 2002 and iParenting Media and ''Hot Product'' Award. I can see why! I used this placemat all the time with my first child and now I am using it again with my second.
The only bad thing I have encountered with the Tiny Diner is sometimes you go to a restaurant where the suction cups won't stick, due to tablecloths, then it doesn't work as well. Even in spite of that I highly recommend this product, it is an every parent must have item!
