Best Baby Changing Tables & Best Infant Changing Stations

Gone are the days when baby changing tables were built for function only. Today’s baby changing tables are available in a variety of high styles. The selection of changing tables range from simple and traditional to contemporary or modern. Many are designed as pieces of furniture that will remain as a chest of drawers for many years into the future. Stylish though they may be, they should provide you with plenty of room to store all your baby essentials such as diapers, clothes, and baby toiletries.

Choosing a Baby Changing Table

I would recommend that you pay close attention to the working height of your changing table - stand as though you are going to change a diaper - what height is comfortable for you? Consider whether you want to stand at the end or to the side. Make sure that the changing table has safety straps to stop your baby rolling off the working area. Finally, consider whether you will want to keep the changing table after baby has stopped using diapers. Will you use your changing table as a dresser, cabinet, or a bookshelf?

To simplify the selection process, I have selected my picks of the best the world has to offer by way of changing tables.

The best baby changing tables are built for more than function. Our best infant changing stations recommendations also offer a variety of classy and classic styles that fit your decor.
