Some people may think they can do without a changing table in the baby’s nursery. Changing several diapers a day can take a toll on a new mom (or dad). A new twist on the classic changing table is a changing table dresser. This is a must-have piece of furniture for your nursery.
Having a changing table that is also a dresser creates more organization in your nursery. You can organize diapers, wipes, and other necessities in the dresser drawers so that you can easily access them when you need to. This also keeps them hidden so the nursery appears neat, clean, and organized. If you keep your drawers stocked, you will always know where to look when you need something for your baby.
If you are able to combine two important pieces of furniture into one, you will have more space available. Combining the baby’s dresser with the changing table gives you a changing table dresser which takes up less space since it is just one piece of furniture. Space may be a concern in your nursery, so combining these two pieces of furniture can help resolve that problem.
Changing several diapers in a day can be back breaking work. If you have to throw down a changing blanket on the floor or on the bed, most likely you will be hunched over while changing your baby’s diaper. After a while of doing this, you can strain the nerves and muscles in your back. With a changing table that is at the correct height, you can change your baby’s diaper while standing up straight and not having to hunch over. Over time this will benefit you more than you realize.
If you are changing diapers on your couch, bed, floor, or other pieces of furniture, you are likely to end up with a mess eventually. To prevent your furniture and floors from having stinky, messy stains, change your baby’s diaper on a changing table. Every mess will always be in one spot that can be easily cleaned.
