What kind of changing mat do I need?
"What is the difference between all the changing mats" is a question I get asked often by lovely parents, grandparents, friends, aunties, uncles etc. So I decided to write a post to help. Should you go with a mini travel mat, an Anti-roll wedge changing mats or one of our Standard Flat Changing Mats? What are the purposes of each?
Bobbin and Bumble currently stock FOUR different types of changing mats:
What are the differences between the three?
These are ideal for traveling, or as we are finding out from our customers, around the house. They are the perfect size for using it downstairs (in their changing caddy), in the car, at the grandparents, or in the garden!
Padded with nursery grade foam and made with nontoxic PVC, they offer enough padding for your little one and can be wiped down after each use. Folding up so they are compact, practical, and incredibly stylish!
Laid flat, our mini changing mats are approx 60cm Long x 34cm Wide x 1cm Deep so they are suitable from birth up to when your baby doesn’t need their bum changing anymore (Wahooo!).
Folded into three they are approx 16cm Long x 34cm Wide x 4 1/2cm Deep.

These are the mostly commonly seen changing mats and probably what you think of when you think of baby changing mats. Like our other changing mats they are made from nontoxic PVC and padded with nursery grade foam so they are comfortable and safe for little bums. With lots of different styligh designs, these flat baby changing mats are great for in the nursery but also a good option for a second mat to have downstairs as you can slide it under/down the side of the sofa and just get it out when you need it. Not only are they handy to have about for changing little bums but also for things like baby massage and nappy free time - without worrying about any little accidents.
