Why a Silicone Mat is a Must Have For a Toddler

If you have ever eaten out with a baby who has started solids or a toddler you are probably familiar with the struggle. You don’t want to put the food directly on the table, but you also can’t really give them a plate — if you have done this you know why. That is why my go-to for eating out is a silicone mat like the Nuby Sure grip Miracle Mat. You can check out all my tips for eating out with a toddler here.

TODDLER SILICONE MAT: A MUST HAVE FOR EVERY TODDLER MOM

The Sure grip Miracle Mat is a plate and placemat in one. It has a built in suction grip that easily seals to the tabletop which means less mess for mom and dad to clean up! The plate is sectioned so you can easily separate food. A silicone mat is flexible so it is not easily broken if you throw it in your bag or if your toddler throws it on the floor. The silicone material helps keep food warm longer which is a great added benefit. I also find that it’s more affordable than some similar products.

We have found for best results you should press down in the center of the plate to remove any air trapped underneath which helps ensure a complete seal. You also want to avoid wiping it with baby wipes which can affect the suction.

We keep a Sure grip Miracle Mat in our diaper bag so whenever we are on the go we have it handy. Once we finish our meal I put any leftover food from his plate on one of ours and wipe the silicone mat with a napkin. When we get home I throw it in the dishwasher — it’s so easy.

Aiden gets really excited anytime we pull out the Sure grip Miracle Mat. He loves to eat so he knows the friendly bear face means food time! We have even started using his silicone mat at home because he doesn’t throw it off his the side of his highchair.

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic toddler, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Considering we may have more kids in the future, I want to document everything we do, so we remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
