Image: Baby with puzzled look reclining in highchair, by Ben Husmann on freeimages.comWhen my son started feeding himself, I got tired of cleaning up the sticky mess he left under his highchair.

So I went to Walmart and found they had rolls of heavy-duty clear plastic in two thicknesses, about 60" (152cm) wide.

I bought a 60"x30" (152x76cm) piece and cut one to fit under his high-chair - 30"x30" (76x76cm).

You could use a tablecloth from the Dollar Store, but since it's on the floor, I found the heavy-duty plastic lasted longer and didn't tear.

I still had a second piece of plastic left, so I put that under his car-seat in the car, to protect our seats from wet, muddy or snowy boots and any food or drink spills

Another idea is a Clear Heavy Duty Tablecloth Protector available in most dept stores, and maybe your local Dollar store?
