How to Organise Your Baby Changing Essentials

Baby changing is on most people’s list of the least popular parenthood duties, but having an organised changing space can make the task a lot less stressful for you and your little one. You’ll definitely appreciate the time saved by having an easily accessible changing station that’s fully stocked with essentials.

We have a range of products to choose from to help you become an expert at organising your baby’s changing essentials:

Spacious Dressers & Chests

To maximise storage space in a smaller room, we recommend purchasing a chest of drawers as the starting point for your changing area. This option conveniently allows you to store changing essentials and baby’s clothes in one place, which is super handy for quick outfit swaps after a nappy change.

Our 3 Drawer Dressers feature three fully extendable drawers with plenty of space and having everything tucked away in drawers helps to keep your nursery looking clean and tidy between nappy changes. Choose from arched, squared and sleigh style 3 Drawer Dressers to find the perfect fit for your nursery design.

If you like to organise using baskets and boxes, our Curved 2 Drawer Chest Changer is another great option for maximising storage. It features a roomy shelf for placing baskets full of nappies, wipes and other changing necessities. We recommend having a small basket containing rattles and teething toys which will help distract baby whilst changing. The chest changer’s two fully extendable drawers offer plenty of space for baby’s clothes and there’s even a hanging rail on either side for quick access to muslins, blankets or spare outfits. An integrated change tray on top helps keep even the wriggliest of babies safe and secure.

Changing Tables

If you’ve already got clothing storage sorted and are looking to create an area specifically for changing, you’ll most likely need to purchase a separate changer.

Our range of changing tables all feature 3 roomy shelves, making sure everything you’ll need for changing baby is easily accessible within arm’s reach. Adding a change pad to the top tier creates an ideal nappy changing station and easy-move castor wheels allow for fuss-free movement from room to room. The shelves of our Tidy Changer can even be removed for easy cleaning, making them perfect for storing creams and lotions.

Changing Mat

You can turn any sturdy surface into a practical changing area by purchasing a changing mat or change pad. Our Cloud Comfort Change Pad can be placed directly on top of a secured chest, dresser or shelving unit to create a unique space that can be customised for your needs. Its waterproof surface is hygienic and easy to wipe clean, and 6 anti-slip feet ensure it remains in place no matter how much baby wriggles.

Opting for a separate change pad means that you have the flexibility to change baby whenever and wherever you need. Move it to the bed, floor or sofa or even pair it with a well-stocked change bag to making visiting family and friends a breeze.
