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.
Kidadl's Top Pick
All our recommended baby changing units get the thumbs up, but if you're really short on time we've picked out the best all-rounder.
1. Infantastic Baby Changing Unit
We reckon this changing table with drawers from Infantastic is the best of all the baby changing stations. It's sturdy enough to last and has tons of storage space in the cupboards and draws, as well as handy slim shelves so you can grab nappies easily. Out of all the changing tables we looked at, this unit was one of the easiest to put together and makes a beautiful addition to your nursery - we think it's great quality for the price!
- Price: £129.95
- Made of sturdy MDF
- Lots of storage space
Best For Stylish Baby Changer Unit
2. Leander Linea Changing Table
If money's no object and you want the most stylish addition to your nursery, then we think this changing unit for babies is the one. This beautiful streamline design combines form and function - the height is adjustable so you can avoid that awkward posture, while there are two shelves for storage. Drawers and organisers are also available if you want to complete the look.
- Price: £426.90
- Comes with foam pad and cover
- Adjustable height
Best Baby Changer For Larger Spaces
3. Mack + Milo Ansel Moritz Changing Table
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.
- Price: £156.99
- Lots of storage
- Sturdy manufactured wood
Best Wall-Mounted Changing Table
4. Harriet Bee Pandora Changing Table With Pad
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.
- Price: £117.99
- Comes with padded changing mat
- Slimline storge for baby changing essentials
Best Cot Top Changer
5. Mamas And Papas Cot Top Changer
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
Best For Moving Around
6. MyChild Peachy Changing Unit With Concealed Bath
If you think you'll need a changing area for more than one place, then this option fits the bill. It comes on wheels so you can easily move to the bathroom, and also has lockable castors so you don't have to worry about it not staying in one place. It even comes with a baby bath and has a huge amount of storage, so you can keep everything you need in one place.
- Price: £69.98
- Includes concealed baby bath
- Lockable castors
- Plenty of storage
Best Bright Baby Changing Unit
7. Babyco Happy Days Changing Station
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.
- Price: £89.95
- Includes soft padded changing top
- Lots of storage
- Castor wheels with brake
Best For Practical Baby Changing Unit
8. Safety 1st Dolphy Baby Changing Unit
Out of all the changing tables we looked at, this one edges it in terms of storage and practicality. It has a baby bath so you can bath your baby without having to bend over, and amid all the storage compartments are a couple of rails to put washcloths and towels. This changing area is easy simple to assemble and easy to move around the home for that extra convenience.

- Integrated bath tub with drainage tube
- Lots of storage

Available in white, grey and green, you can stylishly match it to the rest of your nursery while also keeping muslins and other essentials in the sturdy drawers.
- Price: £260
- Removable changing top
