I don't have space for a changing table and none of the wall hanging table I can find seem to fit. Has anyone hound a solution to this problem?

Just put a mat down on your bed or the floor or another flat safe surface smile.gif the table is nice but by no means necessary

I had one with my first and second, but got rid of it after a few months. I'm a little concerned about the first few months. I'll likely have a c/s and I won't really be able to get down on the floor. Maybe I"ll just keep a pad to put on the bed. I remember poop and pee flying in those early weeks though, lol. ;)

Lol, yeah, the first weeks are a little messy. Are you getting a crib? With my first we had a small apartment and got a crib with a changing table attached, it took up less space than two seperate pieces...if you are short on space though that could be tough...changing pad on a dresser? Those contoured changing pads come with....I'm having a brain fart...thingies you can attach to the back of the dresser. Mount? Brace? Keep it still anyway, lol!

We always did changing pad on top of the dresser. After about 6ish months, we found it easier to move to the floor or bed. I also had a pack & play set up in the corner of our living room one time, and used the changing pad there for diaper changes.
