Are you purchasing a changing table?
Do you think you will ever actually use it or just change them wherever?
BTDT moms, did you use your changing table if you had one?


----------------------------

We did go ahead and purchase a changing table. I don't think we'll use it much, but I want it in there mostly for storage space. There are shelves underneath the changing pad where I am going to put storage bins/baskets like these to store diapers, wipes, paci's, etc.

The crib we are getting has a changing table/shelf thing attached to it. Otherwise, I don't know if I would have actually purchased a separate one...maybe

With my son we never had one but DF found it hard to get on the floor to change him cause he's to tall & I had two sprained hips so bending down hurt like crap lol.

Were buying one this time around, one to match our cot - were buying another cot the same as well.
Heres what were getting;

Since I'll be using the furniture we bought for my 4 year old when she was born, we're not going out to buy any new furniture pieces. We have a hutch combo set, which has a space for a changing area. I used that space a whole lot for about a year, when my daughter became too big for the space. I loved that it has great storage for diapers and creams, and that it has drawers, for clothing. I personally dont think a hutch is too practical for older kids, for newborns/infants, its so great.

If we are upstairs, he will be changed on the table. If we are downstairs, we'll be using a mat on the floor.

We bought a dresser because we want furniture that we will use til baby is out of the house. We're going to put a changing pad on top and just use that. When we're downstairs I'll use the pack'n'play changing spot for a while and then use a mat on the couch.

Yes, we purchased a changing table for each nursery (our kids are 21 months apart). When we're at home, the kids are changed on the changing table 95% of the time. Sometimes you get a "surprise" when you change a baby's diaper and I don't want to get that on my bedspread, couch, carpet, etc.... Changing mats are a nice alternative to a table but often they are too small to catch big messes. And, of course, with a boy sometimes you'll get a surprise shower no matter how hard you try to keep him covered as you change his diaper. And, I rather clean that mess off of a wood changing table than any other surface.

We bought two tables as our kids awake, nap, and go to sleep at different times. We didn't want to wake one kid while changing another.

We also got changing tables that gave us extra storage space below them which has really come in handy.

Do you think you will ever actually use it or just change them wherever? I used one with Arianne for a couple months and then we just found that on the floor was easier
BTDT moms, did you use your changing table if you had one? used it with our first only

We're just going to get a dresser that's the right height and put the contoured changing pad on it. I don't see wasting all that $$ on something that can't grow with the kid at all. I think we'll use it.

I got a free huge dresser that is a changing table as well from the people I babysit for... but it won't fit in my room with my dresser and bed.. so while I'm rooming with Aiden we are getting him a cheaper small changing table.. just to store stuff in and use the changing table. I think once they get older you don't use it.. but in the beginning its good so you don't kill your back changing them on the bed or whatever.

We purchased dressers that double as changing tables. And yes, we use them everyday, multiple times a day. Our kids are 21 months apart and DD was not potty trained until around 30 months. So, we went ahead and got one for each nursery so we would not disturb the one child's sleep as we tended to another child's diaper.

We change diapers only on the changing tables. Sometimes you have messes and I like those contained.
