Arranging the change table

When we were putting the Nursery together, I had all the aesthetics worked out and none of the practicalities. I knew exactly how I wanted it to look, but little idea about what we really needed or how it would be used.

Quite the Pinterest addict, I searched ‘change table organisation’ and found little inspiration.

So initially everything was just heaped into pretty baskets, and over time, with trial and error, we’ve finally found the system that works for us.

On the top shelf we keep the items we need close to hand during a nappy change. Nappies, wipes, tissues, Sorbolene, hand sanitiser and nappy rash cream.

Behind the nappies and wipes, are the burp cloths, extra boxes of tissues, nail clippers, hair brush etc.

Blankets, swaddle wraps and bibs live on the bottom shelf.

We have a Sangenic nappy disposal bin and this blue bucket is serving as our dirty clothes basket until I find a pretty alternative.

We bought the change table second hand, with a few bumps and scratches that we’d planned to paint over, but never got around to actually doing it. I made a pretty cover for the foam insert and that’s as far as we got!

To protect the pretty pink cover from ‘messes’, we place a cloth nappy underneath Miss E when changing, and swap it out for a clean one when necessary.

The cute little puppy dog was a gift. It’s one of those ring-pull toys that sings ‘How much is that doggy in the window’. Miss E loves it, and it’s stopped many a grizzle during the changing process.

Our system is by no means perfect. We’re constantly tweaking it. But for now, it works.

And it looks pretty 🙂
