The MyChild Peachy Changing Unit is hands down one of the best baby purchases we made. It includes a changing mat, bath and lots of storage space all conveniently in one place. This changing station is especially useful if you have any back problems, or are recovering from a C-section because it means you can change and bathe your baby with ease, without needing to bend down.
It has lockable castors which makes it easily portable and spacious storage shelves/trays to store all of my baby’s nappies, creams, towels and wipes etc. The storage space doesn’t just stop there though because it also comes with a separate large caddy, that can be attached higher up on the side for things you need to reach easily. The extra padded changing mat is also conveniently detachable and can be wiped clean. Last but not least, the bath which is cleverly concealed under the changing mat, has a plug and drainage tube attached. This means that you don’t have to lift the bath out of the unit to discard the water, which I think is genius.
This product was honestly a life saver when my baby was a newborn because I could do everything easily standing up, and without straining while I was still recovering physically. When you consider how often you have to change a newborn baby’s nappy (about 10 times a day), it’s really well worth the investment. We keep this in our en-suite but it is bulky and takes up quite a bit of space, so it’s worth bearing that in mind before buying.
Tip: Mothercare changing mat liners are great value and really handy. These are made of absorbant 100% cotton material with a waterproof backing, and help soak up any accidents.
