Why I Use Bamboo Changing Pad Liners
Changing a baby’s diaper in a public place can be a tricky and germy situation if you’re not prepared. Thankfully most of us keep a diaper changing pad in our diaper bags that can help keep baby from touching germy surfaces. I now keep bamboo changing pad liners in my diaper bag for diaper changes on the go.
I was sent these Biloban Bamboo Changing Pad Liners to review. They come in a pack of five, so I can either keep three in the diaper bad or have one for home, one for the car, and one for the diaper bag.
Why bamboo? Bamboo is a natural and renewable source of fiber that is naturally antibacterial and hypoallergenic. It’s safe for a baby’s skin, unlike other materials.
These bamboo changing pad liners are also waterproof. That means if you put one down to protect baby from a germy surface, nothing from that surface will seep through, and also nothing from baby will seep through either.
These changing pad liners are super soft too, much like a burp cloth would be. In fact, because these are so cloth like, they would also be great as burp cloths on the fly!
I use one of these (or more, dependent on diaper changes) when I’m out and about, and if it gets super dirty, I easily stick it in my wetbag and wash it when I get home.
What’s really nice about these is they are machine washable and dryer friendly. Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial and doesn’t need to be washed in hot water, unlike other materials, so just wash in cold or warm water and tumble dry low. I wouldn’t be able to put my regular diaper changing pads in the washer or dryer without them getting ruined!
The one thing I would change about them is the size. While they are perfect for rolling up to stick in the diaper bag at the current size, it’d be nice for them to be a few inches bigger on all sides so that more surface area is covered.
