Buy these: Baby Einstein disposable table toppers

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.

We use these for Elliott...sorry for leaving you in the dark. One word of caution: The adhesive in one LONG strip at top and bottom. So they can take a steady hand and a couple of attempts sometimes to lay them flat. And if you don't lay them completely flat, your kid might take a bite out of the wrinkled-up part. Well, somebody else's kid might. Not mine. I was just speaking hypothetically, of course.

A fast food restaurant, I think Chick-Fil-A, now gives these out with kids' meals. They are awesome! (The toppers AND Chick-Fil-A. Sometimes I do miss the South.)

I've never seen them! Cool. Of course, I don't own a kid.

Well, I do own a kid... 2 actually, and I've never seen these. I can't wait to pick them up. Because I have a very messy eater, and I too, think the reusable ones are too much work for me. I am all for convenience over being green. Sorry.

Oooh, me, too, Nat! I figure there are plenty of tree-huggers anyway :)

I like to be Earth-friendly, and while I do feel a small bit of guilt when I toss these, I think I MORE than made up for it with months of cloth diapers. My little segment of landfill is nowhere near full. :)

I ahve the rubber one that you speak of, and I just wipe it with a wet wipe before I take it home. It was a choice because you only get 18 for $8. and the rubber one only costs 8.99. They are a ttarget. you don't have to go to babysrus. But, we have used our rubber one like four times and I LOVE IT!!
