An Overview On Portable Changing Stations

Parents who find themselves always on the go will need a safe and healthy way to change their babies away from their home changing tables. Portable changing stations are an excellent solution to this problem.

“When out and about with your little one, few things are guaranteed, but at some point they will be hungry and they will poop and/or pee,” says parenting expert Kate Desmond. “You will want to be prepared for both with an arsenal of breast, bottle or snacks, and you’ll definitely need a diaper changing plan. This plan will most likely include a portable changing pad to ensure your baby’s bottom doesn’t soil their surroundings and the surroundings don’t soil your baby.”

As you search available models, you’ll want to keep the following information in mind:

Review the material used to make the changing pad. Not only do you want to make sure the pad is constructed using non-toxic materials that are safe up against baby’s skin, but you’ll also want to make sure the pad is waterproof.

The best portable changing pads cover a large area without taking up to much room in your bag,” says Desmond. “Look for one that folds and unfolds easily — you’ll want to be able to do this with one hand if necessary. Also imperative, the changing pad needs to be wipeable and washable. It will get stuff on it, and you will need to make sure it is properly sanitized every few uses or whenever the moment calls for it.

Check to see if the portable changing station has enough storage to hold diapers, wipes and either lotion or a tube of diaper cream. The Comfy Cubs Baby Portable Changing Pad actually has three separate storage compartments. There are two on the inside and one on the outside. The outer pocket is a nice addition, as it gives parents a place to store their car keys, phone and wallet when out and about.

Some portable changing pads have pouches for diapers and wipes. This is a nice feature if you want to be able to pluck it out of your bag without dragging everything to the restroom with you,” Desmond says.

Examine the padding to make sure it’s comfortable. If you have to lay your baby on a hardwood floor, for example, you’ll want the pad to provide extra cushioning. Some products also have a built-in pillow with extra padding to support your baby’s head.

Look at the portable changing station’s straps next. You’ll find most offer either a handle for easily carrying the pad, or a strap that can be attached to your wrist or your baby’s stroller. Of course, depending on the size of the pad, you may even be able to slide the pad in your diaper bag instead of having to carry it separately.

Consider models that have a little something extra to offer. There are models that offer tall contoured sides that keep baby from rolling off the pad, or a quick-release buckle that safely keeps baby in the center of the pad until you’ve finished changing her diaper. Another safety feature is an anti-slip rubber bottom, so even if you have to place it on tile or hardwood flooring, it won’t move across the floor.

Finally, inspect the style and pattern of the portable changing station to choose one that matches your taste. Some models are solid in color, while others have polka dots or stripes. A few are so sleek and classy that they don’t even resemble diaper pads at all.

DWYM Fun Fact

Although diapering babies has been around a long time, the practice has evolved significantly. Parents in China used to set their babies in bags of sand, while parents in Russia used fur bags with moss as the disposable ingredient. Other popular items used for diapering back in the day included leaves, Milkweed leaf wraps and linens.

In the 1800s it was common for parents to use cloth diapers with safety pins. This practice continued until an employee of Proctor & Gamble noticed how difficult it was to change his grandchild’s diaper. This man, Vic Mills, asked his company to create a disposable paper diaper that would make changing babies much easier. The diaper was constructed and available for sale in 1956.

Unfortunately, the first disposable diaper designs were still difficult to use, so originally, they didn’t sell as well as expected. Today, approximately 90% of American parents use disposable diapers. That’s thanks to the many revisions to the original design. Disposable diapers are now lighter and more absorbent.

Parents today are always on the go, so convenience in caring for their babies is key. In addition to the disposable diapers, parents now have the ability to purchase a portable changing pad to change their babies anywhere and at any time.

The Portable Changing Station Buying Guide

  • Always read the product care label before you attempt to clean your portable changing station. Many have waterproof surfaces that can quickly be wiped down with a baby or cleaning wipe. Some require spot cleaning on the outer surfaces, while others have pads that can be tossed in the washing machine.
  • Look for a changing pad that comes with a money-back guarantee or a customer service team with an excellent rating. This way, you’ll be able to get a replacement product or a refund if you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason.
  • When at home, try to stick with changing your baby in the same area every time. It’s important that you don’t change your baby in any location where food is being prepared. You don’t want to leave behind any germs that could easily contaminate your next meal.
  • Always pack your portable changing station with everything you’ll need for the diaper change and then get those items out before you start changing your baby. Items to pack include diapers, wipes and rash cream. You may also want to have a spare outfit in case your baby has an accident through his clothes.
  • Never leave your baby unsupervised on the portable changing pad, even if the baby has not previously rolled over. This is especially important if you aren’t changing the baby on the floor, as your baby could fall and suffer an injury.
  • After each diaper change, roll the soiled diaper up into a ball and use the adhesive tabs to secure it. This is the best way to seal in the germs before transporting the diaper to a trash can or baby diaper pail.
  • Portable changing stations are available in a wide range of prices. These vary based on special features and the actual style of the pads.
