7 comfy change mats for any-room nappy changes

Olli Ella Reva Changing Basket

Not all baby change stations are created equal – some are dressers with storage to spare, others are open shelved beauties. And then there are the alternatives – the change mats, change pods and baskets that can be placed on any flat surface.

These alternative change stations are perfect for parents who are transient in their nappy changing. Those with double-storey houses with a changing pad downstairs, and a more permanent change table upstairs.

Here are seven comfy change mats for any-room nappy changing.


Leander Matty

Leander Matty Change Mat ($199.95)

The non-slip base means this gem will work beautifully on any flat surface. It also doubles as a play mat if bubba has an activity gym to slide it under.

Bella Buttercup

A nod to Moses baskets this natural beauty is as pleasing on the eye as it is handy, so leaving this changing station in the lounge makes perfect sense.


Beanko Mobile Changing Station

Beanko Mobile Changing Station ($144.95)

Changing baby on the back seat just got a whole lot easier thanks to the Beanko. The ‘comfort roll’ folds down to provide a flat surface for baby to lie on while the padded borders keep bub’s head clear from clunky belt buckles and centre consoles. And just look at all those pockets!

Bumbo change mat

The contoured support of this changing pad means baby is protected from falls, but as double insurance, there’s also a safety belt.
