Road-Tested: 10 Of The Best Baby Change Mats In Australia In 2024

Henlee Change Pad

Choosing the Best Change Mat for Your Baby

Ask any parent, and they’ll tell you that an unsung hero in their newborn starter kit, along with the pram, the bassinet, and the swaddles, is actually the humble baby change mat.

You may think that any old changing mat will do the trick, but you’d be wrong - very wrong! The fact is, a good change mat should be easy to clean, a cinch to fold and take anywhere with you, and ideally - look chic, that’s if you want it to match your gorgeous baby nappy bag! 

You also need to ensure that your change mat is comfortable for your baby, thick enough to protect them from those (very) sturdy change tables in shopping centres, and wide enough to keep the germs far away!

So what are the main things to consider when choosing a baby change mat?

Size Matters: Ensuring Adequate Dimensions

You want your baby change mat to be long and wide enough to ensure that your baby is kept on the mat, and not likely to be able to touch the surface - and the germs - around them, especially while they're very young and vulnerable.

On-the-Go Convenience: Portability is Key

An excellent baby-changing mat should offer exceptional portability. It should easily fold and fit into your nappy bag or any other bag you choose to carry with you. The ideal mat will feature a tie or clasp function to keep it securely folded while you're out and about.

Cleanliness Made Easy: Simple Maintenance

The material of your changing mat matters too. Velvet, linen, or suede may be luxurious, but they're not practical for baby changing mats. These fabrics can be challenging to clean and aren't as easily wiped down as other materials. You don't want to find yourself machine washing your changing mat daily, as this can lead to forgetting to pack it when you're on the move.

Plush Comfort: Prioritising Baby's Well-being

When it comes to baby change mats, the more plush, the better. A comfortable mat reduces the likelihood of your baby squirming and attempting to flip over during diaper changes, making the process smoother for both you and your little one.

"“Love love love! I bought two of the uni mat in tan to use as both a mat in my change basket as well as keeping one rolled up to use as a travel change mat. the fact they're wipeable is perfect. The vegan leather is soft and such a beautiful colour! We have also just put one of the large round tan mats on the carpeted floor of the nursery for some 'splash proof' tummy time in the future to help save the carpet!”" - Abby M
"“Henlee making motherhood easier! That's what we all want right? 🙂 I'm sure all parents know how messy babies can be. I purchased the UNI mat and can't imagine life without it. No matter how hard you try, baby will poo or wee on the change mat many times! With the UNI mat, simply wipe it down to good as new!
