Baby Changing Tables

Newsflash: You’re going to be changing a whole lot of diapers in those first couple months (and years) of parenthood—like a lot of diapers. And you’re going to need a place to do all this dirty work that A) won’t add to your already aching back and B) has the functionality to store all of your diaper-changing essentials.

Changing tables serve the obvious purpose of giving you the space required to change your squirmy and uncooperative baby and usually come with some important features that help you get the job done, including raised guard rails and extra storage space for all that diaper cream you’ll be needing. Changing tables also add to that whole traditional nursery vibe that so many first-time moms go for. (By the time the second one comes around, you’re ready to change them on just about anything. The back of your partner’s pick-up truck? Sure, why not?)

While changing tables certainly fit under the “furniture” category on your baby registry, they don’t have to be expensive. In fact, you can find a high-quality changing table with all of the bells and whistles for less than what you’re paying for your kid’s car seat! That makes them a bit more fun to shop for, at the very least. But there are tons of different styles to choose from, including the basic stand-alone option with bare bones storage shelves, convertible changing tables that double as dressers for when your kid has finally learned how to wipe his own a**, and two-in-one changers that are connected right to your baby’s crib.

Here are some of the most popular changing tables out there today that moms and dads applaud for their safety, storage and functionality.
