Tour of Aria's Nappy Changing Table

When planning Aria's nursery we debated whether or not to get a changing table, a lot of people said they bought them but tended not to use them opting to just change them where ever they were when they needed changing. We decided to go ahead and buy one, even if we didn't use it as a changing table it would come in handy as storage. As it turns out we use it for every single change so it was well worth the money!

Carry on reading for a tour of our changing table and to see the changing related products that we use on a daily basis.

I posted this changing table wishlist a while ago as we weren't sure which changing unit to purchase. We eventually settled on the IKEA Sundvik, it wasn't my favourite but it was my favourite out of the ones that we could afford.

We always keep the most used products out on the table within easy reach, those are nappies, nappy wipes, Sudocrem, hand sanitiser and moisturiser.

pretty basket containing nappies

I received this basket at my baby shower and it is just perfect for storing nappies in. We use Aldi nappies, I've tried quite a few different brands and find that these work best for us, which is fantastic as they are really cheap! We keep a kitchen roll at the back of the table for when Aria decides to have a wee mid change, this quickly soaks it all up before it goes everywhere. The moon and back wooden plaque came from Not Shabby Very Chic.

We have a sloping ceiling in part of Aria's room as the attic stairs are above it, it is quite annoying but fortunately the changing table fits underneath it perfectly. I added this Hello Sunshine flag onto the slope part to brighten it up again, this also came from Not Shabby Very Chic.

We automatically placed the changing mat with the edging at the back initially, after a few incidents of pees dripping down we rotated it so that the edging now prevents wee from dripping off the mat and onto the floor. This is probably the way they are designed but we didn't realise that!

The teddy bear was a gift.

As for what we keep in the changing table we try to keep it to changing related items with the odd exception.

In the top shelf we have refills for our Tommee Tippee Sangenic nappy bin, Medela sterilising bags* and replacement filters for our Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep machine (I did say it is mostly changing related!).

In the top drawer we have nappy wipes (several different brands as we were given quite a few as gifts, but we buy Aldi's as they work well and have a lid on the packet), swimming nappies, nappy bags and various nappy rash creams.

The bottom drawer is where we keep our nappies, we don't shop in Aldi apart from for nappies and wipes so we tend to stock up when we go. The carrier bag contains size three nappies which we aren't yet using.

We keep our Tommee Tippee Sangenic nappy bin next to the table so that we can pop used nappies straight in here.


  1. Wow, that's so organised! I know people who just change their babies anywhere and leave their stuff all around the house so that's even more stressful. If I ever have kids, I think I'll do something like this. x

  2. How cute! She has such a pretty name!

  3. Ha you beat me to it! I photographed Squidge's change area the other day for a blog post too :P Aria's looks so pretty - love the box you have her nappies in :)


  4. So organised - it looks great. Love the Hello Sunshine flag :)

  5. Love this room! I too have a pretty little box for nappies. Also, it never occurred to me that I have the changing mat upside down...

  6. Gorgeous! I have a similar pretty basket on my baby's changing table - although he's so mobile now, we always change him on the floor.

  7. Love this post I use a malm chest of drawers for Blake's. http://joannavictoria.co.uk
