We were given a handmedown changing table - and it works perfectly with this kind of cushion, I'll be getting a new one, too for this baby. I have been pleased that the table worked well as a shelving unit for a long time for my older son, so it hasn't felt like it's only had one use.
But I'm sure once this baby is out of diapers, we'll get other shelving.
I just got one from amazon for 14 dollars so that deal doesn't seem that good to me. We don't have a changing table so we will change baby on bed or floor but the pads are very useful.
ETA I was on mobile when I responded so I didn't click on her link to see it was Amazon. I purchased that changing pad and thought it was a good deal because on BRU it was like $26
lovely4321:Just saw this on a deal website - the summer infant contoured changing pad is $13 right now. I grabbed one but haven't figured out where to put it. Are you using a changing table or a dresser or..??
I don't think this is a particularly good deal. I think this is around the price it always seems to be. In any case, we used a washable mat on the bed to change DS. I had room to sit next to him while I did it, and it was more comfortable than a changing table. Most changing tables and pads on dressers have you changing them sideways, I liked having him perpendicular to me.
achadwick19:We will be using a dresser with a changing pad. Definitely not worth it to buy a changing table (in my eyes anyway).
For sure. We're getting the Sundvik changing table from IKEA, though, which doesn't come with a pad and is very... plain. When the changing table phase is over, we can repurpose it with bins as a toy display if we want to keep it. However, at $60 I'm not fussed about it.
