    hiya girls this probably seems like a stupid question but have you got more than one changing mat for when LO is at home i have got one but's in the nursery atm and it seems a little bit silly to keep taking it up and down stairs every day, was just going to use a travel one (i.e free pampers one from sainsbury's) but it doesn't seem very comfortable to me? had any one else bought two or what are you going to do??

    I was thinking about this the other day, we are going to get a cot top chnager and I wondered weather to get another mat for downstairS. I spoke to my friend who has twins and she said she bought two but only ever use the one upstairs so it was a nit of a waste x

    I'd rather have one upstairs and one downstairs and not use it. U can pick them up for £5 so I would have 2

    yeah that what i was was thinking, was thinking about having a changing box for when i'm down stairs full with things like nappies wipes and nappy cream (might use the Johnson box i've got save always using all the stuff in my changing bag all the time)

    We're going to be getting my SILs old changing unit, so will have that in the nursery upstairs, maybe have a spare one, but it doesn't bother me too much going up and down

    We have one upstairs on the changing table and bought disposable ones from pampers for down stairs, the cost £4 or something for 12 and after nearly 4 months we haven't used up the first pack yet. They are brilliant and you just keep re-using them until they are dirty.
    They are like the pad things they use in hospital to soak up any mess from under you

    I have bought 2 as its going to be easier as OH will be very busy at work within 6 weeks of LO being born so saves me taking them up and down.
    Also we have 2 moses basket stands - also saves me taking it up and downstairs (we were very lucky that someone we knew was about to throw theirs out so gave it to us) x

    I've just got the one upstairs in the nursery - a cot top changer - and then just a small one in the changing bag.
    I am hoping to do most changing in the nursery so LO gets used to the room, so when she eventually starts sleeping in there (rather than with us in our room) it will be more familiar to her. That's the theory anyway! :)
