Rather than washing changing pad covers around the clock, Keekaroo has a simpler, more hygienic solution. Their Peanut Diaper Changer requires no extra cover or pad, and its soft yet durable outer shell is water resistant (great for quick cleaning), limits bacterial growth, and doesn’t skid.
The Catch: You’ll pay a lot more for this than one of the generic foam pads, but those usually require a separately-purchased cover (or three, since you’ll always be washing one).
If you’re looking for a basic changing pad, then look no further. Safety 1st covers all the bases when it comes to what to look for in your standard changing pad: cleans easily, waterproof, raised sides, and even a safety belt for the wiggliest of babies. Nursery Hack: use this on top of a dresser and skip the changing table.
The Catch: Some parents have complained about the strong, plastic-y odor this pad can have.
When it comes to your baby, safety will always be on your mind. The Naturepedic Changing Pad is made from non-toxic materials and secures to the dresser with screws, keeping your mind at ease. With reinforced sides that won’t easily squish when baby begins to stand, you can rest assured that this one is certainly sturdy enough. And it’s comfy, too!
The Catch: Finding covers that fit will for this pad can be a challenge (some seem to be a bit loose).
