    maybe twice with DS1 and then it just got used to put folded washing, nappies etc on. I've always changed on one of those padded change mats on the floor and like Nomsie I now use it in the bathroom to kneel on etc

    It's been in continuous use sine Nov 05 when DD1 was born....our third child is 10 months. He gets changed and dressed on there, for a long time I did my DD's hair on there too.

    I change a small bub on my lap. This still includes my 18mo because she is tiny (still wearing some 00 and only 9½kg). I find that I can use my leg muscles to counteract some wriggling, and it just feels a much more normal position to change a baby for me. (I find using a change table more difficult.)

    However when using ones lap, if the bub wriggles significantly, their head will invariably slip over the edge of the knees. So if you don't have a convenient toddler to support bubs head for you, it can be a bit concerning. For that reason, I generally go with the floor now unless she is being co-operative. I find a change table hard on my back.

    never even bought one. Much easier to change on the floor. When he was tiny i would put it on the dining table because i had a c-section and couldn't bend down, but as soon as i could, i put it on the floor- i can just leave him there to play while i clean up.

    ETA 'it' being a padded mat LOL

    DD3 was 2 in May and we are still using it - will continue until she is TT. I find it so much easier on my back. Now she is big enough she climbs up and so I rarely have to lift her - it is a solid wooden one.

    Changing her on the floor hurts my back. Same with dressing her. This way she can't run off 1/2 dressed. They do go through a super wriggly stage but I still prefer the change table. Everything is on hand and in the one place - easy!

    used ours for nappies and dressing until DD was TT at 23 months, I loved it.
    I had a strap to stop her falling off/moving which we used when she was younger and the older she got, the 'threat' of being restrained like a 'baby girl' was enough to keep her still. Ahhhhhh those were the days... before chasing around the house at every dressing session became the norm!
