    I don't know whether to get a unit for the room or a cot top changer! If anyone could help me with your advice I'd be great full x

    I got a really good changing table from mothercare for £40 it's white so matches the rest of our nursery furniture and was v easy to assemble.
    No doubt we'll have a changing mat downstairs too but I wanted a table for his room x

    Well storage is a good reason for us to get one but not sure if I can justify spending £50 on something I'm gonna use for 12months when it's not a complete necessity x

    I've got a cot top mat. We haven't moved yet so I don't know how big the nursery is gonna be, but I figured if I got the cot topper, I wouldn't have to worry about having space for a changing station. Also, we're gonna be living in a flat, so I won't have to go upstairs all the time to do a nappy, so it will probably get a lot of use.

    I have a changing table for night times in my room and a mat for during the day downstairs. The table is handy at night, and it's a good height for my back!

    We've not got one... Yet. We have 2 mats, one for living room and one for the bedroom. We live in a bungalow but its very long with baby's room at the opposite end to the living room/kitchen etc.

    However, because we have a built in wardrobe in the babies room it isn't enough space for storing things like nappies etc (we're going down the reusable route) so we're going to strip down and re finish an old chest of drawers we have, but if that doesn't work we'll buy new ones potentially with a changer on top to make life easier. But I'm not buying one unless the drawers fail in some way (like looking really poo!) xx
