Correspondingly, can I use a dresser as a 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.
Secondly, can I put a changing pad on top of a dresser? The top of the dresser needs to be large enough to accommodate a changing pad without any of the pad hanging over the edge. Buy a vinyl-coated changing pad. These are sold to fit the tops of changing tables and may come with or without removable covers. Choose a pad that fits completely on top of your dresser.
Simply so, how do I choose a changing table?
Things to Look for in a Changing Table
- Furniture needs to be secured to the wall so that it doesn't topple over on your baby.
- To handle baby's business quickly, you'll want to keep diaper cream, diapers and disposable wipes handy and easily accessible.
Is it worth buying a changing table?
A changing table is a stand-alone piece of nursery furniture. The top is the right size for a changing mat, with shelves or drawers underneath for storing nappies, baby wipes and changing accessories. A changing table helps you keep your nappy-changing supplies in one place. However, they can be expensive and bulky.
