|Ikea Sniglar Changing Table|
We live in a small house and needed to keep our newborn in our room. We were stressed over this decision, but the Sniglar helped because of the small footprint. We paired this with a Fisher Price sleeper and our problems were solved, so we thought. At the time of purchase, Ikea was not selling the Gullunge changing pad online. I sought one out, but found that they all had vanished, apparently a recall. This left us with an odd dimensioned table without a pad.
We knew Joann Fabrics sold foam by the sheet and that was a start. The key would be a waterproof cover, this is not even debatable. So with impending childbirth, I threw everything I had at the problem. I ordered 18" x 27" embossed fleece pads from Babies' R ' Us. These were nice for a soft top and waterproof, but did nothing to enclose the foam. We were chasing down another idea at Target, when I found waterproof covers for standard pillows. It turned out to be a perfect fit, Rock On!

We also want to mention a must have accessory for 3:00 AM diaper changes. Energizer has a gooseneck, clip on LED light that is awesome. It is bright and manageable with one hand. Nice for the spouse sleeping in the same room. I know this is a very specific post, but it is a great solution for a unique problem.
