Anyone who's had a baby will tell you there are a lot of nappy changes involved - at all times of the day and night.

And when you're doing those emergency changes at three in the morning, the last thing you want is to be rummaging around on the floor for nappies, wipes and cream.

The baby changing table is a must - it's practical, can be ideal for storing those little nick nacks and it'll save a lot of back ache as your baby grows.

We've looked around for the best changing units for babies so you can pick the most suitable one for you both to enjoy.

We absolutely adore this changing table. It's got a beautiful design, has loads of storage space and is really sturdy.

It is one of the largest ones we found so only really suitable as a piece of furniture in a larger nursery rather than just a changer. Please note that it can take a while to put together, but it's definitely worth it for the stylish end result.

Main Features

  • Price: £156.99
  • Lots of storage
  • Sturdy manufactured wood

Best Wall-Mounted Changing Table

Fold-down baby changing tables don't have to conjure up images of service stations and public toilets. This streamlined design is perfect for cosy nurseries if you're short on space, and sturdy enough for nappy changes without any stress.

It may not have as much storage as the bigger changing tables for babies, but the two shelves are enough for those essential nappies and wipes.

Main Features

  • Price: £117.99
  • Comes with padded changing mat
  • Slimline storge for baby changing essentials

If you're worried that you don't have the space for a changing table, then a cot top changer is your best changing solution. This one from Mamas And Papers is super sturdy and even has a handy towel rail if you need to quickly wipe up any accidents.

If you have the space, you could get a basic chest of drawers to put nearby for storage of those handy essentials.

  • Price: £79
  • Includes towel rail
  • Perfect for space saving

Many baby changing tables come in a neutral design, but sometimes you want that pop of colour in the nursery. We love this changing station because of its bright design and multi-functionality.

As with the changing table above, it comes on wheels with lockable castors, and you can even introduce colours to your baby as you use the storage trays.

Main Features
