Just so, what can I use instead of a changing table?
Alternatives to changing tables Changing pads can be purchased at baby supply stories like Baby Depot or Babies R Us and can be used on any flat surface, giving a sanitary spot for diaper changes. For a raised surface, some parents opt to use a dresser or even a desk with a changing pad on top.
Also, when should you stop using a changing table? You should keep supplies within your reach, but out of the baby's reach. Stop using your changing table when your baby reaches the age or weight limit recommended by the manufacturer, which is typically age 2, or 30 pounds (13,607 grams).
One may also ask, can you use a regular dresser as changing table?
Most changing tables include shelves to hold diapers, wipes, powder and other supplies you need. But once your baby outgrows diapers, you're left with a piece of furniture you can't really use. If you convert a dresser to a changing table, when your baby gets older, you can use the dresser in his room to hold clothes.
Do you really need a baby changing table?
No, you don't necessarily need a formal changing table. You can choose a changing table to match your crib or nursery style, or get one that has drawers or shelves to use long after your baby has outgrown diapers.
