What are you doing to make sure that the changing pad doesn't slide around?
My pad came with 2 straps that will screw / snap onto the back of my dresser. Heres the link......
~Flossie~:You could always get velcro and stick it on there if you were really worried about it, but I don't plan on being more than a step away when LO is on it so I'm not worried about it sliding off if I'm right there the whole time.
Even if you dont plan to step away it is still a good idea to have something in place to keep the pad from moving. As LO gets older they get wiggly.
For DD I have a changing pad wooden thing (not sure for the correct name) Anyways, it looks like the top part of the below picture. I found it at a re sale shop and you set the changing pad inside it. The entire thing sits ontop of the dresser.
For DS I have his changing pad on his dress and I put rubber shelf liner under it. You can get it at Bed Bath and Beyond, wal-mart, target etc...and it comes in a ton of different colors.
Be careful putting the rubbery drawer liners on finished wood or painted furniture. It can mess up the finish. I know this from (sad) experience. We don't have anything under our changing pad and had never had a problem with it sliding off, even when he got big and squirmy.
If you want to do something, I would screw the thing into the dresser or get the box thing to put it in. I know pottery barn kids has them.
