Best Baby Changing Mats/Pads 2021

PERSONAL NOTE 

Changing mats might not seem like an essential item on your list or even something that you thought about till you stumbled across this article, but as a first-time mum, I can tell you that having a dedicated place for changing diapers is invaluable. Our changing mat is one of the most used products in our house, and it’s saved our sanity more than once because we have everything we need to change our baby centered around that one mat specially when the baby poops or pees.

Also keep in mind, baby changing pads help keep the baby comfortable, safe and secure for all the diaper changes you are going to go through during the day AND NIGHT.

Now you might not need the mat we got but having one is essential to ensure that you are not constantly washing linen as you’ve been using your bed or your couch as a changing mat within your house. These are different from the portable changing mats you will get that will be an essential part of your diaper/nappy bag to ensure that when you are out, you have a clean place to change your baby in.

But first let’s talk about our favorite changing pads ranging from super stylish to basic comfort that are a must have.

The Munchkin Secure Grip waterproof diaper changing pad has extra grip keeping the pad in place. The safety straps and contoured sides keep the baby secure.

‘I’m on baby #2 and wanted to find a new changing pad. We have tried a few but they wore out within a few months and it was disappointing this changing pad has firm edges so baby can’t roll off easily. (Never leave your baby up there unassisted) and the best part about the changing pad it has grips underneath that keep it from sliding. The other changing pads we used previously did not have those and we would have to use the non-slip material that is used under rugs. Were impressed with the quality and length of the changing pad. (We don’t use a changing pad cover because it covers the grips, I suggest you use a changing pad liner that sits on the top, that’s what we use.’– Chelsea Powers

‘This pillow has been a lifesaver during my pregnancy.

‘Used this from about 20 weeks pregnant to help me sleep on my side. I use it every night and am now 39 weeks and 4 days. It is a life safer!! The cover stretches a little with use, but shrinks back once you wash it. Picture is my 39 week belly. Careful though, if your dog is like mine, it might try to steal it every time you get out of bed to use the restroom! Haha.’ – Annette
