Ok ladies, what do you think? Which changing table should we get?

This one:
SPOLING Changing table - IKEA

It's polyester and machine washable. I thought it would be a good idea for when Hannah has her more explosive/messy moments.

Or should I go for something a little more classic:
SUNDVIK Changing table - IKEA

With this one I could put some small storage bins underneath for clean diapers and everything else.

Both of these would fit the space I have selected perfectly.

I like the first one a lot! I have never seen one like that, and I think it looks great! I also like the storage on it better than just the big shelves on the second one.

Do you question it's stability because it's foldable? I think that's another feature I like about it. It would make for easy storage in our small apartment.

I like the storage too. I can put wipes, powder, bum cream, and changing pads each in its own pocket. I might have to buy a storage container of some kind that will only take up 2/3 of the bottom shelf for clean diapers so that I have room for the pail underneath as well.

I love the first one! Now I'm thinking about getting it to use in the living room. I love the pockets!

I've used the first one a lot, it's very sturdy. I like it because I love being able to fold stuff away. I think this one is better for sposie users though, there's not much space for cloth diaper stuff.

I have one like the second one and I like it because I have the little IKEA bins underneath full of stuff and my wetbag hangs on the side.

It's a toss up though. Either way, they'll both be useful and cute, lol.

I'm going with the first one! I told my SMIL and she said they will be heading to an IKEA in the next few weeks. A part of me worries we won't get it before Hannah comes, but at the same time I know I can live without it for the first few days. I won't even receive my diapers until July 6th, so I have nothing to set it up with. I'm glad I'm getting a changing table though. At first I didn't want one. I figured I can use any flat surface to change her on since I have changing pads, but I like to be organized and it'll be nice to have a designated place to change her, especially in the middle of the night.
