“ Brand: Huggies / Type: Changing Mat „
If you're a mum, or should I say parent this situation will be familiar to you. You're out for the day when your little one makes an almighty mess in their nappy. You search for a nice place to change them but all you can find is some grubby port-a-cabin with a floor surface that you would not dream of putting your child on. Searching somewhere else you decide your only option is to change them on the cold wet grass outside and so search for something in your changing bag that you can rest them on so they don't get dirty/cold/wet and then upset.
This is where these Huggies Changing pads come in really handy. I have a proper changing mat in my bag but I really only like to use this inside say when I'm round a friends house etc. I don't like to use it in a dirty place because when you put it back in your changing bag you get the rest of the items in your bag dirty. This for me is not acceptable as I carry spare clothes, food, drinks etc in my changing bag and do not want these getting dirty. The Huggies changing pads are disposable so they are just designed for one use only and once you have used it to change your baby on you just throw it away, perfect of it gets messy or gets poo/wee on and you do not have to clean or disinfect it once you get home.
These Huggies changing mats are just a thin sheet of material with a soft absorbent top. They are quite thin so they will not provide a nice soft padded changing mat for baby but this is not bad as you only really use it for a few minutes. As its thin it folds up quite nicely and does not take up too much space in your changing bag. The back of the pad has a non slip waterproof backing so it's safe to use on all types of surfaces. The pad is not huge but big enough that you can place your baby in the middle of it and it will protect the whole of them.
I don't use these all the time but it's really handy to have a pack in your bag for emergencies. A pack of 8 costs just £2.59 so they are quite cheap to use just now and again and are a baby product I recommend.
