Pros Cons
  • organic, works wonderfully, feels luxurious, nice size
  • alot of money for something she is going to pee on and ruin eventually!

Its hard to explain why a person would spend $90 on her first diaper changing pad, and then $2 on her second.  Without writing a book on the subject anyway .  I'll try to summarize the highlights, both why I loved my first changing pad, and why I changed to the cheapest garage sale "find" I could find.

 

PRO

 

  • Organic, unlike a lot of materials baby already spends time on

  • soft even without a cover

  • fits most off the shelf covers easily

  • four contoured sides

  • safety strap is easy to use

 

CON

  • expensive, compared to $2 for used clean diaper changing pads. This is especially important when you consider what the extra $88 could buy your baby!

  • Needs to be replaced after she pee'd over a crack in the PUL, there was no saving this one any more than the $2 replacement could be saved after a similar accident. Changing pad #3 for daughter #2 was also an inexpensive $1.50.

  • if its covered with an organic cotton towel and then an organic cotton cover, exactly what is the difference? Aside from the $88, that is.

 

If its a luxury you really want, and will make it nicer to change diapers at midnight, by all means, enjoy.
