OK this is a long shot, the wife really wants a changing station for our unborn child, so i wondered if anyone was looking to get rid of one?
No idea on costing for this though as it would really depend on if it was right for the wife.

have you not got a chest of drawer you could add a rim on as thats all they are

I have a baby crib, come with Mothercare mattress and Graco pushchair, comes with rain cover, foot muff and also a car seat as well. Both are in perfect condition, no wear and tear. We didn't use the crib that much as the baby was sleeping with us in bed.

I am looking around £90 for both of them, pics will be available on request. Or you can buy it seperate if you prefer.

Thanks

In my opinion they're not worth it mate, they take up way too much space and rarely get used

Good luck trying to tell a pregnant women that though :p

Exactly, when you are expecting you just want everything right especially if its your first and why not you can always sell it on at a later date

I had one, used it like twice, is much easier to change the kids on my knee, onto my third now and ones not rolled off yet \o/.

As previous poster says, gl telling yer missus that its not needed.

I'm still a moaning faced cow and I'm no even pregnant anymore.

Hi Matt,

Have you tried freecycle? [url]www.freecycle.org[/url], loads of people give all sorts of baby items away and you can also post wanted notice. Try Ebay for local collection but if your other half wants a changing table there's this at Ikea:

You can also buy the changing mats separately also, Home and Bargain is really good for this but I got one free from Surestart which is great for families as there's loads of activities for all ages and free days out, also really good creches for really reasonable amount: http://www.surestart.gov.uk/

If not Mothercare does sell cot changers on their own which you put on the top of a chest of drawers so you have the storage and not have an extra piece of furniture to find space for:

or,

this one fits on the top of the cot.

From experience I wouldn't buy a changing unit with a bath, it's a bit of a waste of money and takes up a lot of space and is not very sturdy.

Good luck and congratulations!!! I hope this helps.:thumbsup:

Get a big fancy graco travel cot, they have the changing tables included and ya can use it as a basinette and then a cot.

Thats 3 in 1, talk about value for money.

Don't get one. Your baby can't fall off the floor. Seriously. I think they're dangerous.

When its an expected first time baby, mum-to-be wants everything., that's no prob... but to be honest, when its a first time mum with no experience of baby changing etc, everything takes absolutely ages to do! i.e., changing a nappy is an 8-10 minute procedure as is changing a vest or dressing the kid etc! and when standing at the changing table for all that time whilst using emollients to massage baby or whatever- it really takes the toll on mums back... also depends on how stressful labour was. really, the easiest and best thing imo to do is SIT down when changing baby- on a bed, on the floor, even at a desk with baby on a mat and mum on a chair...it is soo much more comfortable..

but as a poster recommended above, freecycle and flea bay local collections are the cheapest way to go about it.. though mega space saving is the over cot changer.

good luck with the search and the baby;-)

Thanks for all the advice guys, this is actually our second, although we were in a flat when we had the first so didn't have much room.
Heovang, we already have the crib & pushchair, thanks though.
I'll try talking to the wife re:alternatives, wish me luck.....lol

matt - you ever though of getting one of those changing tables that sit over the cot/cotbed?

We're thinking of getting one of those as a space saver.

Good luck. I'm in the process of trying to convince my wife that we don't need a bed rail/bed guard. He's about to move out of cot and into a bed. I'd rather have a few cushions at the side of the bed in case he rolled too far in his sleep. I reckon with a bed rail that is just something for him to climb over and that can lead to a tumble (and a head first one at that). I think Dad's can be a bit less panicky than Mum's. Afterall, when I was a nipper they hadn't even invented/thought of the "baby monitor". Can you imagine trying to convince the wife that we didn't need one of them??? Jesus, I'd be arrested for child neglect these days!!
