There are so many essential items you need when it comes to changing your baby that it can be difficult to keep everything organised – that's where a baby changing box comes in handy. You can keep it beside your changing mat so that you're ready for every nappy emergency.

From nappies and wipes to creams and lotions, babies need a lot of products every single time they are changed. Let's face it, you're going to be changing those dirty nappies quite a lot, so if there is something out there to store all those little bits and bobs you're regularly reaching for, it's going to make the job a lot easier.

The beauty of a baby changing box is that they are portable so you are able to change your baby wherever you are in the house and on the go, knowing that you have everything you need in one place.

The side pockets are an amazing additional touch - they're great to hold your nappy cream or even your mobile phone.

I love that it’s practical and handy. It is lightweight enough to grab with one hand- a skill you learn to use when you have a baby! It keeps all those little bits and pieces all in one place- the perfect little companion I didn’t realise I couldn’t live without!"

What to put in a baby changing box?

Every baby and every mum is different so what you want to include in your baby changing box may be completely different to someone else's. If you are not sure what to include, here is a list to get you started:


Baby wipes

Nappy rash cream

Portable changing mat

Nappy bags

Muslin cloths

We would also suggest keeping a change of clothes for your little one in your baby changing box, in case there are any big accidents that can’t just be wiped clean. You might find a little toy, like a rattle will be useful too, so you can distract your baby into lying still for their nappy change.
