Baby Changing Tables
A changing table is designed to make diaper changes easy and safe.
A well-designed table is waist-height
and has ample room to store all your diapers, creams, washcloths, and changing pads.
Essential features of a good model are
guardrails (to keep the baby from rolling off the table) and safety
straps. (Always use these straps, and always keep one hand on your baby.)
Types Of Changing Tables
We think a flip-top is the safest and best type of table to use, because it still works well as your baby gets bigger and more active. When your child has outgrown diapers, the fold-out top can be removed and the dresser used through adulthood.
Use a sturdy contoured changing pad. This pad is soft and comfy for the baby, and the sides curve upward to keep baby in place. You'll want two removable terry-cloth covers for easy cleaning.
Many parents choose a changing table that complements their chosen baby crib. Crib manufacturers frequently offer a dresser, shelves, or a rocking chair to match the crib and changer, if you're interested in a full baby furniture set.
