    Default Change Table

    Hi ladies,
    I am thinking of getting a 4 draw chest with a change table built on top. Has anyone had issues with space of elbows and arms with changing as it will be pushed right against the wall?
    Thanks, Jackie

    I have one and I change side on. I find it easier and have never done it any other way.

    We use an old desk...its quite long (119cm x 60xm). The draws are great for nappies, wipes, bibs, etc.

    I use the anti slip matting underneath and the padded baby change mat. Then on the sides I can put creams, wipes , etc.

    Attached a pic (dont mind the mess underneath the desk!)P1010638.jpg

    I got my change mat from Big W...was $20 I think? And the anti slip matting I got from Spotlight but I have seen it in Kmart as well.

    I bought an ikea chest of drawers and got my dad to make a change tray which sits on top. I find it so much easier to do on the side!

    Here's some pics (sorry they're not very good!)

    Default Change Table

    I have drawers and change table and I love it. I brought it off eBay and it looks very tidy. I fit all of DS nappies, wipes, lotions etc in the top draw and use the rest for his clothes, wraps bub etc.

    We bought a drawers set for the change table. It has three long drawers and two smaller ones across the top. It was already in the shop with the lip all around the edge designed to be a change table. However, we preferred a wider mat with high sides and so we just got them to make it wider for us and didn't cost that much more. Have used with all of our kids and find it great. I think it was around $400 not quite 5 years ago. We stained it ourselves so that it would match the cot.

    We have been in homes where people with the bath/change tables and seen kids fall off them multiple times. Not sure if this is the design or the parents though!

    I have a regular changing table, but pushed up against the wall. Never a problem with elbows on walls, etc.
    The only problem I had was the height of it - it just always seemed too low, and gave me a backache standing and leaning over. So hubby attached some wooden blocks underneath on castors to get it higher for me.
