While you can change your baby anywhere, it’s much more efficient to have a dedicated station. It beats having supplies scattered in every room.

Some baby changing tables come with extra features for further changing optimization.

Anything that makes the changing experience easier is a gift, so consider your changing table a battle station for the endless diapers to come.

We reviewed the top baby changing table brands and products available to help you make your pick.

What to Look for When Choosing a Changing Table

1. Storage

Babies have tons of changing supplies, so somewhere to keep them on the changing table is ideal. Look for storage bags and shelves. If not, search for a table that fits on top of, or near, your supply station.

2. Portability

Sometimes there’s an emergency change needed, and you can’t move your baby to the changing station. Wheels on the changing table allow you to bring the supplies to you.

Forgoing wheels, a foldable or travel cot station are both ideal for trips out where there may not be adequate changing facilities.

3. Size

You want to make sure the changing table fits in your space. Sometimes babies share their already crowded parents’ bedrooms; other times, the nursery just isn’t very big. You need to maximize your space, so getting a foldable, wall-mounted, or simply a smaller changing table may be necessary for your situation.

4. Weight Limit

Some changing tables are flimsy and only work for a few months. Others will last you a year or more, like our top 10 best changing tables.

The more weight it takes, the longer the table can last, so if longevity is your main concern, go for the one with the highest weight limit.

But always make sure you know the weight of your child in comparison to the assumed age limit. Not all toddlers will be the average weight.

Our Favourite Changing Table

Our favourite changing table is the Babyco Happy Days Changing Station. The Babyco Happy Days Changing Station has plenty of storage, plus a convenient bath and has an all-in-one nature that makes it a great pick for any nursery.
