When it comes to caring for your baby, having a dedicated space for changing their nappy is essential. Baby changing mats provide a comfortable and supportive place to change babies and toddlers. Not only does it protect your baby from coming into contact with any harmful bacteria or allergens that may be present on other surfaces, but it also ensures their safety by providing a secure and stable platform.

Changing Mats are used multiple times a day, everyday (for several years) so not only do they need to be practical and hardwearing, but also beautiful. Lets face it, you are going to be looking at it a lot - so why not have something nice.

Different Mat Types

Wedge Changing Mat:

Our wedge changing mat features raised edges, which helps your baby to feel safe and secure during nappy changes.

Mabel & Fox wedge mats are great if you’re tight on space; many of our customers will use this style on top of a chest of drawers if they don’t have space for a changing table. Please do remember never to leave your baby unattended on a high surface.

Standard Changing Mat:

Our standard changing mats are designed to fit into most changing tables, they have raised, padded sides to ensure a comfy surface for a baby change. We’ve opted for an extra thick layer of padded foam for additional comfort too! They are also lightweight and can easily be moved around the house if needed!

Travel Changing Mat:

An absolute must have for changing on the go, not only are our travel mats a practical compact mat for out and about, but they can be kept downstairs to avoid unnecessary trips. We’ve opted for a 1cm foam thickness, which means your baby has a padded surface when out and about, but they can also be folded down and popped into your changing bag easily too!

Basket Changing Mat:

Last, but not least, are our Basket changing mats . These are designed to seamlessly fit our beautiful, handmade seagrass changing basket. Offering a good level of padding and comfort, our basket mats manage to balance being an on-trend nursery item that's practical and comfortable for little ones.
