When baby's meal misses its mark, it's handy to have one of these easy-to-clean mats in place. Best Baby Placemats

Your baby is properly bibbed, and their dinnerware is firmly suctioned to the table.

Still, despite all of your best efforts, your little one’s meal is likely to miss its mark (aka, their mouth) and wind up all over. That’s why it’s handy to have a placemat that keeps everything covered and is easy to clean.

Check out our favorite finds for placemats for babies and toddlers.

A Placemat You Can Eat Out Of

Who wants separate dishes and mats, when you can get this all-in-one instead? This BPA-free silicone placemat has a smiley-face separate compartments (no food touching!) for baby to eat out. Then the whole thing suctions directly to the table. You can even use it in the microwave to warm food, and throw it in the dishwasher for cleanup. Easey-peasey, indeed!

Additional Specs
Dimensions 15 x 10 x 1 in. (eyes are 4 ounces and smile is 10 ounces)

A Cover You Can Color

Unlike those made out of plastic, these silicone mats stand the test of time. They are heat- and dishwasher-safe and won’t get moldy. Plus, they have a grippy surface that keeps both the mat and the dinnerware in place. Now for the fun part: your little one can draw on these mats with washable markers!

Additional Specs
Dimensions 13.8” x 0.4” x 8.9”

The Too-Cute Mat

The Skip Hop designs are always adorable, and these mats come in a ton of cute characters. The non-slip silicone keeps everything in place, with a rimmed edge that keeps liquid from sliding off. The mat has a little loop that allows you to hang it dry after washing, and it also keeps it rolled up in your diaper bag. They are also dishwasher safe.

Additional Specs
Dimensions 16.5” x 0.2” x 12”

A Table Topper You Can Toss

While we all want to be more environmentally friendly and budget-conscious, when you have babies, you often need to take the easy route. These extra-large disposable placemats just stick right to a restaurant table and then get tossed afterward, so you don’t have to deal with cleaning and repacking a silicone mat. Use one, and you’re done. They’re BPA and PVC free.

Additional Specs
Dimensions 12” x 18”

The Roll and Go Mat

The cloud-shape fits most high chairs and is big enough to cover a wide swath of table tops (it’s slip resistant too). Made of 100 percent food safe silicone, they roll up tightly so you can throw one in your diaper bag, leave one on the high chair and have another in the dishwasher.

Additional Specs
Dimensions 11” x 3” x 3”
