Am I the last one to discover these? These Baby Einstein table toppers are great for going out to eat. It's basically a disposable plastic place mat that has adhesive strips so you can stick it to the table, protecting your kids from germs and protecting the table from a messy eater. I've seen the portable rubber place mats that serve the same purpose, but having to roll up a dirty place mat and put it in my diaper bag doesn't appeal (mainly because I'd probably end up forgetting about it for a few days). I found these at Babies R Us, and they cost about $8 for 18.
