The nice people at Patemm sent me their pad to try out on our big California Adventure. I was super excited to use this for O in the hotels where we are staying along the way, because frankly, hotel carpets/comforters skeeve me out!
He likes it!
This pad is great because it no matter how O stretched out his little limbs, he's always on the pad. Our old changing pad was long and narrow, so his hands would always be grabbing around the changing table or floor. Yuck! The multiple pockets around the circumference of the pad can hold diapers, wipes, change of clothes, or whatever you need.
Yesterday morning I found another use for this pad. JD is used to eating when he wakes up, but we were not ready to hit a restaurant. We had packed some oatmeal and granola bars for this reason. In the hotel, I assumed we could set him up at the desk, but it was too high for him when he was sitting in the chair, and it was making a mess. So I put him on the floor with it. It was better, but he was still spilling milk and some oatmeal on the carpet. Then I thought to sit him on the "magic breakfast spot", and he sat on it (for the most part) and ate his breakfast. I just wiped it down when he was done, and I didn't have to worry about him eating food off the yucky hotel carpet. Awesome!!
He was dumping out his animal crackers before eating them, but I didn't have to worry about yucky hotel carpet because of the patemm pad!
