At the beginning parents can be very confused with the array of items available for babies. It's hard to tell one thing from the other and differentiate between their uses. Changing tables and changing pads are for the same purpose but they are two very different things.
Changing tables are a sturdy piece of permanent furniture that's usually kept in the baby's nursery. It's at the right height for changing the baby without having to bend down too much.
A changing mat can be used anywhere and it is portable. You can change the baby on different places around the house or when out and about.
Most diaper bags come with a changing mat, which makes it very convenient to get the baby's diapers changed easily and hygienically.
