How to Choose a Changing Table


As a prospective parent, you may wonder how hard it could possibly be when it comes to learning how to choose a changing table. But you'd be surprised at the little details that can make your life easier when you have them, and a nightmare when you don't.

The first consideration should be how long you are going to be using the table. Is this a short term item, that you need to move around the house as an infant moves with you? In that case, an adjustable, foldaway that is designed for lighter weights and younger children, will do.

However, if you're looking for a durable piece of furniture that will serve you and the child as they grow, you'll want to look at something more functional, and with features that will make caring for your baby, easier.

Many parents choose a changing table that goes with the décor of the child's room, whether that is natural wood, hand-painted design, or even brass tables. And to get the most out of their purchase, the style they choose usually includes shelves, drawers, cupboards, or a combination of all three.

The top level of the changing table, should have at least a four inch deep rim, to give you a reasonable enclosure for very young infants. Belts for restraining the baby come with most tables, and should be used at all times.

What comes under that level, is a matter of preference. Some models of changing tables will have one or two shelves with a lip around the edge, to prevent things from rolling off. Other styles will come with baskets on the shelves to help you organize your baby care items. And more deluxe models may have a shelf, plus a cupboard underneath, and possibly a cupboard to one side that is made to hold the diaper pail. These provide the best and longest lasting value, because once the child is out of diapers, they convert to dressers, play tables, and storage areas.

When choosing a changing table, don't forget to check the weight and/or age limit. The more weight it is certified for, the more durable and sturdy it is likely to be.
