New moms and their babies never had it so good a few years ago. When I was nursing a baby, changing mats were made of vinyls, and it was not easy to find one. These days, you not only have basic changing mats, you have all these that are mattress-types and come with the safest materials — organic and eco-friendly.
The Patemm Pad
This is a play mattress/changing pad in round shape and comes with spot pockets to put your baby wipes in. It’s designed this way so that you have the baby all covered and whether she wiggles off, she still stays in the mattress pad. This starts at $55 at Patemm Pad’s site.
The Oshi Mat
Made of PVC free non-toxic foam, the Oshi mat is also both a play mattress and changing pad that provides sturdy support and is big enough for mom and baby to do exercises on. It goes for $50 at Oshi Mat.
The Swaddlebees bottom part is made of PUL, while it’s top part is made of soft fleece so that laying down on it is comfortable. The baby mattress pad has an extra layer of Sherpa, so that it becomes super absorbent. This is available at Swaddlebees.
