    Looking for a chest of drawers with a folding baby changing mat with limited space!

    I am looking for something like this as its ideal ikea.com/gb/…27/

    The only problem is its 10cm to deep. I have 40cms to play with...

    I am looking for either

    1 - Exactly the same but 40cms deep
    2- Just a foldable table top thats 40cms while folded I could attach to an existing chest of drawers

    That one cant be the only one on the market surely? Im struggling though

    Used one of these Ikea ones at our nursery for 20-25 years, you can get the fold down ones used at Swimming pools/public toilets, but they are more than twice the price and made of plastic; not seen anyone else selling anything I would risk a baby on.

    For my own children, I just bought a padded neoprene Swim changing mat and used the bed, couch, table, where-ever we were when a nappy needed changing

    maybe nothing you would want but maybe rather than changing draws a changing shelving unit (changing table ontop and 2 or more shelfs under) would do the same job

    Obaby Open Changing Unit (at agros, since link dont work normally) same as draws just with open access

    Can't say I would trust the fold out part, but we still have the drawers we used for our youngest, now 7. It just has a lip around the top of the drawers and we put a changing mat on it. Works well as it's easier to deal with the changes at a height. Not to mention some of the messes it creates.

    Thank u just got a candy deer

    Looking for something to avoid bending to save my already ruined back!

    have you looked at those that go on top of the cot? so they just clip onto the edges of the cot saving you the hassle of trying to find the perfect size.

    ​ah I see sorry I'm no help then. I just used a changing mat on the bed normally and then the floor. I did have a changing station but it was huge so I ended up getting rid of it.

    Also have a ruined back, but sat with my legs in a "V" with the mat between them; but obviously everyones back is different.

    Any handypersons (Uncles/Great Uncles/Grandads) around who could custom make you one?? It is basically just MDF with a hinge, I would plan on a pull out brace for extra strength, but then you could have it made to fit the space.
