Benefits of Portable Changing Tables
Baby changing tables are often understood as those stand-alone pieces of nursery furniture that typically looks like a chest with shelves or drawers underneath for stocking accessories for changing, nappies and baby wipes. The top of this furniture is a padded place where you put the baby in order to change his diapers or give him a cleanup.
A baby changing table is very helpful for mom’s so that when they clean their babies, they don’t have to bend their knees or hurt their backs because they can carry out this chore standing up. It is very costly, though, to own one of these changing tables.
Another detriment that most owners of baby changing table discover shortly after purchasing one is realizing that nappy changes during the wee hours is not helpful. They have to get out of bed to go and stand at a changing table, and no way to do it repeatedly because sometimes there are only two minutes between changes.
There are better changing tables that come with locking wheels which you can just wheel around wherever you will need it at night like near one’s bed for easy reach. But the standing up and the staggering is still there if you have to do it in the we hours of the morning.
This changing table with wheels can become impractical if you live n a two-storey house, and you can end up rarely using it or putting it in a place where the baby sleeps at night. With this problem, it would not be practical to buy this type of changing table.
There are also those plate type trays called cot top changers which can be conveniently brought around anywhere you go because it does not take up space and they are very light. They are also cheap that you can even get an extra plate in your car. You can then purchase a portable bag designed to carry nappies and creams.
Another item where you can change your baby is the changing mats or fabrics made of supple material. Although these mats are light and easy to carry, the problem is that it is not stiff enough to be mounted or held on to any hard surface. Other than that, cot top also have raised edges to keep the baby from slipping off despite having a harness to keep the baby from rolling.
Cot tops preferably called ‘portable changing stations’ is not only water proof they are also easy to clean, with an antimicrobial agent that inhibits the growth of stench. These cot tops are very safe since they adhere to global safety regulations and standards.
