There are various different options available to a new parent when they are looking for baby changing furniture. There are changing mats, changing tables, changing dressers and even cot top changers. There really is so much choice so how do you decide which one is best for you? Well, if you are looking for the best space saver option, then a cot top changer may well be the option for you.
What to Look For in a Cot Top Changer
Cot top changers seem to be the type of changing furniture that most new parents know nothing about. Basically they are designed to fit snugly over the cot and they save a lot of space by doing it this way.
The main thing you really have to look out for when looking for one of these types of changers is the size of them. You should always measure your cot and be sure that when you go looking for the perfect cot top changer for you, that you purchase one which will fit snugly. If possible try and get a sample, such as if you know a friend or family member who has used one, try and see if you can borrow theirs to test on your cot. If you buy the wrong size it will not be safe to use and it could cause a possible injury to the baby.
Something people wonder about these types of changer is how the baby does not just fall off. The answer to that is that the changer has raised sides so the baby couldn’t possibly roll off. The only way the baby could injure themselves is if the changer fell down sue to it being the wrong size. Also, it is never a good idea to leave the baby alone in the changer as anything could happen.
The great thing about cot top changers as well as saving on space is the fact that they come already padded and they are easy to wipe. With a lot of changers you have to buy a separate changing mat so that the baby is comfortable, but with this option you get a padded mat included.
The main thing to look for with a cot top changer is whether or not it is sturdy. Obviously you want one which is the sturdiest one you can find and it should be comfortable for the baby.
Overall a cot top changer will make a great, space saving addition to any nursery, just as long as you remember to never leave your baby alone on them!
