    Default How long did you use your change table for?

    My DS is a very wiggly, squirming 8 month old (as most are at that age!) & the past week I've resorted to changing him on the floor. Makes it *slightly* easier, mind you he still manages to roll on to his tummy about 6 times each change!

    So I was just curious when you gave your change table the boot? :-)

    My DS is 20 months and we use it everyday. He knows that is the place for nappy changing and is (mostly) happy to lie still. He went through the wiggling stage too when he learned to roll but it didn't last long.

    When she was 2-ish.

    She was a squirmer, but mine had a strap so I could tie her down to it. On the floor, she could actually get away. She couldn't on hte change table, even if she squirmed and it annoyed me.

    I loved having a change table.

    19 months and still going.. although she is getting more and more wriggly and it's getting harder and harder to change her nappy - but I think that'd be the case whether I tried to changer her on the change table, bed or floor. At least on the change table it's a little easier on my back!

    By the time the boys were 5 months I was changing them on the floor every single day time change. If I had to do midnight changes I still used the table (well, we just had the big padded mat on a benchtop in their room) just to make them more comfortable.

    I nearly resented buying the big mat tbh, until they started bathing in the actual big bath. Now the mat lives in there and I use it to sit/kneel on to wash them. If I have to wipe a dirty bottom before they get in the bath then it means I don't have to change them on the cold tile floor.
