Learn the best changing table dressers for your baby!
I have twins so while I perfected the art of changing my babies anywhere, I also appreciated the importance of a good baby-changing station.
As long as your baby is safe from falling or other injuries, you really can change them anywhere. Many moms opt not to invest in a changing table for this reason.
However, there’s something to be said about having all of your diaper-changing supplies in one place!
This cuts down on the panic of running around your home gathering up diapers, wipes, creams, and clean onesies for leaks and blow-outs.
If you’re wrinkling your nose at the idea of buying a piece of furniture dedicated solely to diaper changes, have you ever thought about a changing table dresser?
Instead of wasting space on a changing table, you can combine the convenience of having one with the invaluable storage a dresser provides.
Bonus: Most of the changing table dressers on this list are convertible!
That means you can remove the changing tray and continue to use the dresser as your little one gets older.
So before you nix the idea of having a changing table, keep reading to learn more about the top changing table dressers for your baby.
But, first, a word on safety.
Tips For Choosing a Safe Changing Table
I see so many dresser changing tables put together by simply throwing a changing pad on top of a dresser.
This is why I wanted to show you the top changing table dressers for your baby – they are made with safety in mind!
But not all dresser changing tables are made the same.
Before you buy one, make sure you follow these four tips:
- Check the safety strap. A changing table should have a pad that affixes to the top of the dresser with a safety strap to hold your little one in. It only takes a moment to turn around and reach for something for your little one to roll over and fall.
- Look at the storage: Apart from wanting extra space to store things, open shelves may tempt your curious toddler. Drawers are great because they are closed and easy to access as you’re changing your little one.
- A good changing table will have barriers on all four sides of the pad if the changing pad is flat. Contoured changing pads only require barriers on two opposing sides.
- Dresser height. How tall the dresser is could make a difference when it comes to bending and back pain. Also, dressers are climbing hazards so you want to make sure you secure them to the wall (many of the dresser changing tables in this list come with anti-tip kits).
With these tips in mind, let’s look at the top changing table dressers for your baby!

Because you have a dresser handy, it would make sense to store some onesies and pajamas in the drawers. You never know a diaper leak or blowout is going to necessitate a wardrobe change!

Here are some essentials you should keep in your dresser changing table:

- Small Blanket
- Diaper Pail
