Editor's Notes

March 18, 2019:

Because diaper changing happens so many times per day and night, it can becomes a monotonous task that leaves room for error, so we only included changing pads with secure straps to keep babies and toddlers safe. While most parents expect a cover that goes in the wash, we included a few newer sleeker choices that are water and stain-resistant while still being soft. The Hatch Baby Grow took the top spot for having this time-saving, cover-free option while also adding in a handy wireless scale so that parents could take care of two tasks at the same time.
