Newborn Essentials Guide - Change Mats
Newborns and their 'stuff', there's A LOT am I right? Where to start? I know I struggled to find the information when I was expecting. So I thought I would share my thoughts on what I needed, found useful and what I didn't. This time around I thought I would talk about change mats.
There are so many variations of the change mat. Traditional (PVC cover), baskets, warm-to-touch foam, travel mats or failing all of that the lap does the job :) So here's the thing it is completely personal to your needs. I actually had three, one in her room, one down stairs (so I didn't have to go upstairs every time for a change) and a travel mat that I kept in her change rucksack. Some may need more, less or none at all.
Here's a few of my top picks.
