Today’s changing tables are built with baby safety in mind and most have a convenient strap to keep baby from accidentally rolling off the table. The contoured changing pads add a small lip on either side for an extra bit of safety. We actually have an old fashioned baby buggy stroller that doubles as a cradle as well as an emergency changing area and it uses a flat changing pad insert.
In either case, it has become abundantly clear that a back-up changing pad cover is not just prudent, but often necessary. In the early days of diaper changing, I simply could not figure out how to take care of all the tasks with just two hands. And that inexperience often presented a need to quickly wash the changing pad cover. And babies typically don’t wait until the wash and dry cycle are complete before demanding a fresh diaper change.
Quality changing pad covers make great baby gifts and most parents would appreciate a second set. At Bilobanbedding.com, we have more designs to choose from in both flat and contoured designs. These great gifts will be easy on the pocketbook as well.
