Baby Changing Station

Hello all! I did search a lot in this forum but didn't find yet any topic of baby changing station. I am just wondering that how can i prepare baby changing station at home instead buying a new one. If you know about any site or store who offer baby changing station at reasonable price, so suggest me and share your ideas. It'll be my pleasure. Thanks

This is probably best asked in parenting. Anyways, you don't need to change a baby on a station, you can change on a blanket on the floor.

I bought a contoured changing pad and stuck it on top of a long dresser. Works perfectly.

We bought a nice dresser that will grow with him, and a friend gave us a great changing pad that fits perfectly on top.

$20 Craigslist solid wood dresser, $20 worth of paint and primer, and a $10 contoured pad. Works great

Re: Baby Changing Station

I didnt have a changing table or pad with my first two. Seemed like I always used the floor, the bed or mainly I think I had a large beach towel in the bathroom that I used when they were really little that I put on the counter. when we had our 3rd I was sure I needed a nice contour pad since I never had it with my others (plus this house has hardwoods). Yup, never used it. I always seemed to use the rug

I might be the odd one that likes having a changing table/station. I got a really nice quality solid wood one from someone who posted it on Craigslist who was moving for $10.
Good Score.
I like having the big baskets beneath with all the diapers/accessories organized. But if I didn't find that changing table for so cheap, I was going to get the longer, lower dresser like previous posters mentioned and put a pad on top. But I'm maybe a little weird about enjoying diaper laundry and "folding" them and putting them away. So having everything organized makes me happy. (oh geez I just read that.. is that sad?)

Re: Baby Changing Station

A lot of people like to change babies on the floor or bed, but I have two large dogs and I wanted a changing table up off the floor since I know I would have two puppy noses in the middle of the dirty diaper if I tried to change on the floor. I found a nice one "used" for $50 that had never even been put together. My son is due in December, so I haven't actually used it yet, but it just seemed like the most practical choice for us with our pooches.

I always changed on the bed, but I saw a nice changing station for sale at IKEA that I might have gotten had I known about it before!
