    i thought this would be a suitable place to post my dilemma...

    changing tables - I am tossing up getting one that matches my furtniture for example and then a separate bath OR one of those all in one change table / bath units. My problem is though - do all of those 2 in 1 units have the change table lift up? I would prefer one that lifts off - what if I knock it down on to the baby by accident!!!!

    help please.....

    I had a change table to match my furniture, it seemed sturdier than a bath/change combination. Now that dd is too big for it, I'm using it as a storage shelf until we need it again.

    The two things I tried to do everyday, if nothing else, was have a shower and make my bed. Even when everythibg else Wss a mess I felt so much better if I did those things.

    I agree but it's not practical for a lot of people (me included)...

    I had a lift up one and hated it. Ended up buying a wooden one to match the cot.

    I love this idea! Thanks!
