April 28, 2006, Newsletter Issue #14: Baby Changing Table vs. Baby Changing Mat

Tip of the Week

Baby furniture selection can be a complicated process for new parents. Confused about the difference between a changing table and a changing mat? Essentially, a baby changing table is designed as a fixed, permanent piece of furniture in your baby's nursery. Functioning as a sturdy bench, the changing table provides a comfortable height-appropriate place to clean up a messy baby.

In contrast, a baby changing mat is a portable, durable plastic mat with cloth on one side. Easily placed nearly anywhere to provide a clean, dry place to change a baby’s diaper at home or when out and about. Baby changing mats are handy, especially when traveling or shopping, because they provide the assurance that your baby's hygiene, comfort and care are not compromised.
