    Default Change Table Opinions!!!

    Hi All,

    I am looking at getting a change table ready to set up nursery for bub number 1! I’ve been offered a great Sleigh style table – brand new never used – for $70 and the lady bought it for like $270!!

    My question is, with this style of changetable, there is a rail at each side and then a higher rail at each end!!

    I wondered if you are standing at the end of the table and have to lean your arms up over this end rail – does that make it more difficult to change bub etc? If you do a google image search of ‘Sleigh Changetable’ you will see the design I mean!! Love to hear your thoughts!

    xo

    Bargain!

    You'd stand at the open end, with bub's head at the higher rail end.

    I just bought a chest of drawers and used the top. That way I could put everything I needed in the top drawer ready for use and it was the perfect height, then I could also keep using it once she was out of nappies too.

    By looking at that pic I would say you would change from the side not the end. Does look awkward, though i'm sure you would get used to it and not have any problems. I do the same thing as PP though, have a chest of drawers and have the change mat on top of that, held there with that sticky matting stuff. I figure you have to have drawers anyway so why not use as a changetable.

    Thats sort of like my change table, because all public change tables are from the side i do the same at home, easy peasy!! Others find it awkward but i find it awkward having his legs infront of me.
