Public Baby Changing Stations: Some Tips to Make Diapering Easier

Public baby changing stations are one of the greatest convenience-boosting innovations to come around in a long time. Not only do they make life easier for parents, they also provide a safe, sanitary location for diapering infants.

Of course, there’s a right and wrong way to do just about everything, and that includes taking care of changing duties while on the go. As a public service, we’re pleased to present the following information.

Handy Tips for Handling Diaper Changing Duties

  • Start by purchasing a bag devoted entirely to holding diaper changing supplies. You can purchase these from online merchants such as Amazon.com or at many brick-and-mortar retailers. While some of these items are designed specifically for this purpose, just about any good, sturdy shoulder or handbag will do. Look for one with lots of pockets for organization.
  • Pack the bag with the items you’ll need for quick, easy diaper changing. This will, of course, include diapers. But also carry items like travel-sized baby wipes, a portable changing pad, plastic bags for holding soiled items, and perhaps some diaper cream.
  • Additional items you may want to add include a bib, burp cloth, baby toys, baby food, breast cream, hand sanitizer, fresh clothes for the baby, bottles, formula, and even snacks for mom and dad or the kids. When in doubt, it’s better to have it and not need it than the other way around.
  • Check the bag after a daytime or overnight trip and restock as necessary. This way, you’ll never find yourself out of a needed item when you’re away from home.
  • Never dispose of dirty diapers in a public waste can without first enclosing them in a small plastic bag. Otherwise, they may generate horrible odors the other restroom users will have to endure. Alternately, you could carry the soiled diapers in a plastic bag for home disposal.
  • Following these tips will make using public baby changing stations fast and hassle-free. And, if you’re a facility owner or manager, isn’t it time you offered the convenience of commercial diaper changing tables to your customers?
