Changing your baby’s diaper isn’t always quick and easy, which is why we’ve listed some tips and essential items that will make the process a bit more efficient!


When you have a newborn, it’s inevitable that you’re going to be changing a lot of diapers, which is why it’s crucial to make the process as easy, safe and efficient as possible. It’s important to consider your baby’s safety, the height of the table (A good rule of thumb is no lower than your hips and no higher than your waist in an effort to save your back) and that everything you need is within an arm’s reach. To save you a bit of the legwork, we’ve put together a list of eight change table essentials designed to make your life as a parent a little bit easier.

  1.  Nook Pebble Change PadThe Nook Pebble Change Pad is a favorite of parents looking for a soft and comfortable surface for diaper changes. It’s made with a certified non-toxic foam core that’s contoured for your baby’s safety. The waterproof cover is made with all-natural eucalyptus and is stain resistant, removable, washable and incredibly soft.
  2. Ubbi Diaper CaddyThe Ubbi Diaper Caddy provides parents with convenience and accessibility by having diapering supplies organized in one portable storing unit. Made of sturdy PVC, BPA & Phthalate-free plastic, this caddy has an integrated handle, non-skid rubber feet, two main compartments for diapers and wipes, a drawer for smaller items and includes an easy-to-clean changing mat.
  3. Acure Baby Buns Diaper BalmAcure Organics has created an incredible USDA Certified Organic non-nano zinc oxide diaper cream made with 100% natural ingredients that is perfect for preventing and treating diaper rash. This earth-friendly balm contains coconut oil, shea butter and borage oil and is free from nasties like parabens, artificial fragrance, petroleum and sulphates and has never (ever!) been tested on animals.
  4. Ubbi Diaper PailOne of the reasons we love The Ubbi Diaper Pail is the fact that you can use any standard sized trash bag or reusable cloth liner, making it eco-friendly and easy to load, use and empty. This nursery essential is made with powder-coated steel, rubber seals and utilizes a sliding lid to achieve maximum odor control. The sleek Ubbi Diaper Pail includes a childproof lock and is available in an array of colors.
  5. skincando Combat Ready BalmEczema and dry skin are very common in babies and having a natural skin cream on hand is essential.

  6.

Soothingly scented with Erbaviva’s custom blend of organic mandarin and chamomile essential oils, this lotion is a genuine treat for the senses.
  7. Kyte BABY Solid Footie: When it comes to changing a diaper, it’s crucial to have easy access. We recommend Kyte Baby’s incredibly soft and snuggly footies. Each footie is made from silky smooth bamboo rayon and come in a rainbow of modern, earthy colors. The stretchy material gives you the option to have a snug or looser fit while still staying comfortable and stylish.
