Just the thing for a traveling baby

America Travel Changing Mat (courtesy Uncommon Goods)One of my favorite catalogs and Web sites is Brooklyn, NY-based Uncommon Goods; they always have the most interesting items, many hand-crafted.

In the current budget climate, I try to avoid temptation and not even open the catalog, but in a TGIF moment of weakness yesterday I decided to browse.

I wish that I’d had the exceptionally cool America Travel baby changing mat for my kids when they were still in diapers.

“Featuring an adorable print of the 50 states and a unique soak-proof lining inside (so that nothing leaks through onto clothing or surfaces) this lightweight yet durable mat will make perfect traveling companions for your little one.”

There’s a matching bib and burp cloth as well.

As for me, I’ll take the cotton Geography Dish Towels, so I can dream of travel while cleaning up kitchen messes.
