    Muck mat or plastic mat as pp have said - but I found with my DS that yes the mess was bad from 8-12 months but because we are letting them teach themselves to pick up/spoon feed earlier they "get it" a lot quicker - he hardly made a mess at all as a toddler and now I make more of a mess eating than he does at 3.5!

    I agree with all PP's - we use a large heavy duty clear tablecloth from target, cut it in half so we have 2 mats (around 1.5x2m each). It was only $10 in their tablecloth section.

    DS (2) was BLW and is a very tidy eater but I find I shake little bits of food off him or his chair onto the mat. Once a week I take it outside, shake it off then wash it in the sink with warm soapy water and hang it on the line to dry. It's so much easier
