Changing a baby's nappies is an important and messy business, and so should be as comfortable as possible for both babies and parents. A hygenic, safe, and stylish changing table is a great addition to any baby's bedroom and makes the whole process easier and less disruptive for everyone involved. On the go, practical and compact baby changing bags allow for efficient nappy changes with the minimum of hassle or fuss.
Changing stations are available in versatile designs which makes the decision even harder. The baby change unit or chest of drawers should be well-designed in order to be ergonomically adjustable and to provide an optimal level of height. This will facilitate the babycare tremendously. An open drawer or a shelf is more practical than a base cupboard since care products such as cremes, wet pads, baby powder, wash cloths, disinfectants, diapers, and onesies are immediately within reach.

Practical alteration and safety
Before purchasing a diaper changing unit you should think of all the requirements the changing table has to fulfil. Height-adjustable chest of drawers and tables are particularly good. They enable a healthy posture during a baby massage, for instance. Synthetic material is the best option as it facilitates hygienic cleaning. Babies grow very quickly which is why the bearing surface has to be large enough for convenient long-term usage. The side panels of the chest drawer should be high enough to ensure the baby's safety when using the padded changing cover which has to guarantee a safe grip and easy cleaning. Wipeable surfaces should be covered with soft towels which will provide a cosy bottom layer for your nursling. Baby changing bags are particularly convenient during transport due to the clearly arranged and always ready to hand baby items. It is important that tables and chest drawers offer excellent stability. As far as possible they should have round instead of sharp edges and corners. Adequate test reports will provide you with the necessary information on which changing station will be the best for your baby. A major point is the tested safety (GS logo) and that the chest drawer complies to safety standards (EN). Thereby health risks trough harmful and damaging paints and lacquers can be prevented. Meanwhile there are chest of drawers that can be modified afterwards. By unscrewing the changing unit a practical stowage for toys can be created. It is therefore recommendable that the material of the changing station matches the overall image of the furniture.
