Retrofitting a cot
Changing table for a baby - for a cot or a chest of drawers?
A changing place is a basic issue that should be taken care of when completing a layette for a child. You will repeat this activity at least several times a day, so it is important that the changing table is safe and comfortable for the baby, as well as convenient for parents. The decision is usually made between the changing table for the cot and the changing table for the dresser. The price is the main advantage of the first option - it is a rigid cover that is placed on the cot, thus obtaining a practical changing area. It is an inexpensive solution, but quite short-lived - its use is safe until the toddler is not too big for the changing table and cannot turn onto its tummy on its own. What, in turn, speaks for the changing table for the dresser?
A changing table for a chest of drawers - a practical solution for a toddler and a parent
However, if you want to organize a permanent changing room, a changing chest of drawers is the solution for you. This piece of furniture - although more expensive than an ordinary changing table for a cot - is a perfect place not only for care, but also for storage. Thanks to this, nappies, tissues and other hygiene items, as well as clothes are always at hand. What's more, when the changing table is no longer needed, the chest of drawers will still do its job. The final choice, however, depends primarily on individual needs, financial possibilities, as well as the space you have in the toddler's room.
A drawer for a baby cot - how to cover its contents?
A practical solution for a child's bed is a spacious drawer. You can hide in it a supply of nappies, blankets or bedding, keeping the room tidy, and at the same time having everything you may need to care for or put your toddler to sleep. For aesthetic reasons, it is worth covering the contents of the drawer when the cot is on the highest level - you can do it with a special cover or a delicate and decorative masking flounce on the cot. Both solutions are perfect for hiding the contents of the cot drawer, and the final choice depends only on your sense of aesthetics.
