If you’ve got the space and the budget, you’ve got your selection of well-designed, changing tables that are practical, and appealing. It can be worth the investment: Many parents use changing tables into their kid’s 2nd year. It is possible to put it to use in your child’s room for years, if you get a combination dresser and changing table.

Their infant just changes on the ground or bed, on a waterproof changing pad or towel, with nappy-changing equipment stowed in a basket that is nearby. Others put it on top of a dressing table, keeping nappies and wipes and purchase a changing pad.

Another cash- and space-saving option is a play yard that features a removable changing table insert. You can just use this attribute until your baby reaches typically 15 to 25 pounds, the maker’s recommended weight limit.

What to Search for when Purchasing

A guardrail: Regular on tables that are changing but not on dresser/changing combos, it’s an important characteristic. A railing that is at least 2 inches high on all sides is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Sturdiness: You need secure legs. Shake the table, and select another version, if it feels rickety.

Pads that are altering: Try to find a thick, pad that is contoured to help keep your infant from rolling too far in either direction, and ensure there’s a security strap that goes across your infant’s body to help keep her. Most are manufactured from vinyl- or cloth-covered foam some are manufactured from wipe-clean silicone.

Storage: You will value a convenient spot to keep nappies, wipes, and lotions, whether in drawers or on shelves. You should not have to bend or take your eyes off your infant to get these things.

Versatility: A changing table with shelves, drawers, or compartments may be used to stow blankets and toys once your kid’s done with nappies. And a combination dresser and changing table may be used for years, provided that it is nicely made; some characteristic removable toppers.

Important Safety Notes

Although a security strap is an excellent help, it is not a replacement for hands on oversight. Never leave your baby unattended on a changing table or any surface that is raised for an instant. Infants can roll or turn away in a instant. Constantly keep near or a minumum of one hand on your infant to prevent serious harms.
