Don’t buy a Changing Table

IMG_1062

Don’t waste your money!  Or someone else’s.  Use the money to buy nice curtains or a nice rug.  Something that will have permanence in your baby’s room.  That will be able to stay in there when they grow up to be 8, 12, and 16.

A changing table is effective and necessary.  You need a place to store diapers and wipes and diaper rash cream and of course, a place to change your little angel.  But I’m going to let you in on a little secret.  The best one passed along to me when I was pregnant and thinking about buying one…

The only changing table you will ever need is a bureau.

Yup.

That’s it!

Use an existing bureau in the room you’ve deemed the nursery, or buy one that will last forever in your child’s room.  Then plop a changing pad on it, with a little changing cover, and set up a little box on the side of it and stuff it with all of your necessities, cream, mineral oil, wipes, powder, etc.  And purchase one of those diaper hanging bags, about $10, and you are good to go!

You will save yourself at least $200 and the hassle of trying to resell it once you no longer need it and the heartbreak when you realize that you’ll only get $15 for it, even though it’s in beautiful condition!
