Baby Changing Table - Convenient and Comfortable
The baby changing table can be handy in the nursery, as it will make diaper changes more convenient and easier for you and your infant. It can be a standalone unit or it can come with a chest of drawers or a storage unit underneath, so you should be able to find the right piece that will suit the size and aesthetics of the nursery. Shopping for a baby changing station is easier than ever because you can now order one online.
Safety is one of the most important factors to consider when looking for a baby changing table. Keep in mind that there are no Australian standards to ensure changing-table safety as of date, so it is up to you to examine the features and learn about the product to make a smart buying decision. For starters, make sure that it is a high-quality product that is stable, with good and secure locking mechanisms, and without any gaps that can entrap your baby’s limbs or fingers. Moreover, make sure
it comes with roll-off protection, like waist restraints or raised sides to prevent baby and other objects
from falling out.
Proper use of the baby changing station is recommended to ensure the safety of an infant, too. In some cases, you may not even need one at all—especially if you already have another surface for changing your baby (i.e. your bed or the floor). But if you still want a changing table, make sure that it is positioned away from hazardous parts of the room, such as windows where there rare curtains, drapes, cords, and blinds, heaters, power points, and areas where you keep lotions, creams, and pins.
A good baby changing station can come with straps, so be sure to use them to keep baby in place. Otherwise, make sure one hand is always on the infant to prevent falling or rolling off. Nappy change equipment must be near you, so you can easily reach them when needed. More importantly, never leave your baby unattended.
