When my kids were babies, I loved organizing their changing tables. I think it made me feel organized when I knew I really wasn’t and had no idea what I was doing with a baby.

So what do you really need for your changing table? Here are a few of my favorite products:
The Summer Infant 4-sided changing pad is ideal for any changing table or even a dresser you make into a changing table. This pad was actually named by parent.guide as the best changing pad right now. Don’t forget a cover for it!
If you don’t have a traditional changing table, you may need something to fill the void of a drawer. This nursery organizer holds everything from the diapers to the wipes to all your creams.
A diaper genie is a must!
My pediatrician swears by Aquaphor and I do too. This is the best skin cream for babies with rashes or dry skin. I still use this today.
There are definitely strong opinions about which diapers you prefer. I am partial to Pampers. Here’s a tip — if you are having a baby, don’t waste a lot of money on newborn diapers –go right to size 1. Babies are not in newborn for very long. You may want to learn more about reusable cloth diapers — I like these.

Organizing a changing table should work for you — so find a way to organize yours! Your sleep deprived body will thank you!
