Changing mat 70×80

Our changing mat 70×80 for a clean baby bottom! Nordic coast company has developed a changing mat that meets all the needs of babies and parents and also looks beautiful! The changing mat cover consists of 100% cotton . There are nine magical designs to choose from in a sporty, classic, maritime, cute or neutral look - depending on the style of the children's room or furnishings. The changing mat cover can be washed at 40 degrees and can be tumble dried. To counteract possible shrinkage, we made the covers 2-3 cm larger so that they get their final shape and size after the first mandatory wash. The size of our changing mats is not chosen at random. With dimensions of 70 x 80 cm, we ensure that the 70×80 changing mat fits any square changing table.

This means you don't have to worry about choosing the right size. Standard sizes for changing tables such as 75 x 85 or 75 x 80 cm are always a few cm larger, i.e. 2.5 cm left and right, top and bottom. The changing mat always fits perfectly because 2.5 cm around it is not noticeable at all. Only if the changing mat is 70×80 larger than its surface does it protrude unattractively. The filling of the 70×80 changing mat is conveniently supplied with the Nordic Coast Company. Unfortunately, many companies only offer the cover and you can only buy the ugly, hard plastic fillings individually. To make it as comfortable as possible for you, we have both in a set. The filling consists of Breathable polyester fleece , is washable and approx. 4 cm high. By the soft fleece Injuries are counteracted by promptly “throwing backwards”.

The removable towel made of soft terry cloth is 40 x 60 cm in size. With this size, your child's rolling movement during changing can be forgiven without leaving a trace, as anything that lands on the towel stays there thanks to the waterproof PU coating on the bottom. Of course, our coating is noiseless. Using four snap fasteners or our Clever Velcro solution (the soft and hook strap is attached here so that it can be closed against each other for washing), the towel can be exchanged for a new one in just a few steps (even with one hand). A rickrack decoration even makes the towel an eye-catcher. Additional extra towels are available in sets of two here in the nordic coast company shop.

The special highlight of the nordic coast company changing mat 70×80 are the small toy loops to the left and right of the towel. They allow baby toys to be attached, which is an excellent distraction for the baby while changing. As they get older, many children don't like being changed or dressed or undressed. Therefore, you should always have something to play with. With our toy loops, the toy cannot fall down and is always ready for spontaneous changing. To make the changing area particularly comfortable and a place of well-being for your baby, you should also think about a heat lamp. This can be attached above the changing table. Alternatively, for those who are not allowed to or do not want to drill, a radiant heater or fan heater is a good solution.

Just make sure to leave the spotlights on the lowest setting as babies are very sensitive. You should also never leave the heater on when leaving the room and under no circumstances - never leave your child alone on the changing table. Not even for a few seconds. Babies turn around unexpectedly and can suddenly fall off the changing table. To reduce the risk, you can buy a changing table with side protection. There are also changing mats with side protection, but this is usually so small that it does not pose a real hurdle for a turning child.

What should you look for in a changing mat?

Newborn babies have their diapers changed up to 8-10 times a day. That's almost 3,000 diapers per family in the first year and around 6,000 before they get dry, usually between the ages of two and four. Therefore, the correct equipment of the changing area is particularly important. Starting with the right changing table with small compartments for all the utensils you need when changing (in addition to space for diapers, especially wound cream and wet wipes), finding the right changing mat is sometimes a big challenge.

We recommend a changing mat with a removable cover that is washable at 40 degrees. To avoid frequent washing, the changing mat cover should be equipped with a waterproof, removable towel. Of course, a conventional terry cloth towel can also be placed over it. However, when the baby pees, the urine drips onto the changing mat cover. The solution is a waterproof terry towel, which can be exchanged for a new one in just a few steps. Since you often pick up the baby after a mishap, a practical fastener, such as a Velcro fastener or snap fastener, is ideal, as the changing towel can be changed with one hand. It is important that the towel is wide, because after a few weeks the baby will roll back and forth with his bare bottom while being changed.

The changing attachment is available as a set with a cover or individually. If you buy both together as a set, you can be sure that the changing mat cover fits perfectly on the changing mat. To make a plastic changing mat more comfortable, you can also purchase a cover for the changing mat. Nevertheless, the plastic changing mat usually remains harder compared to a fabric changing mat and it is not uncommon for them to rustle unpleasantly and smell like chemicals. It is therefore important to pay attention to where the changing mats are produced and whether they are free of harmful substances. The products from Europe are subject to a strict standard and are mostly Oeko Tex Standard 100 certified . The height of the cushion (i.e. the filling) is important for the changing mat. If this is too flat (approx. 1-2 cm) or too soft, the babies can injure themselves during sudden movements or when being thrown back. This risk is significantly reduced with a soft but stable cushion 4-5 cm high.

In any case, the pillow filling should also be washable. The most hygienic option is a filling made of breathable polyester fleece. It doesn't clump when washed and doesn't retain odors. Finally, when comparing a plastic or fabric changing mat, sustainability is also an important point. A cotton changing mat is the clear test winner here. In combination with a waterproof terry cloth towel, disposable pads from the drugstore can be dispensed with. This not only saves money, but also a lot of changing waste over the 3-4 year average changing time. A nice side effect is that the mostly white disposable pads with colorful edges do not cover the actual changing pad cover. This is an important point for parents who, in addition to functionality, also pay attention to the style in the children's room.

What size changing mat?

When you think about buying a baby changing mat, you read about different, similar sizes: size 75x75m, 80x75 cm or 75x80 cm, and dimensions like 70x50 cm or that Changing mat 50×70 cm . No matter how the measurements are written. The smaller dimension is usually the height and the larger dimension is the width. This means that the changing mat is, for example, 70 or 75 cm high or long and 80 or 85 cm wide. Although they are very similar, one wonders: what is the difference and which size to choose? If a changing table or a changing table mat is already available, the size of the changing mat should be slightly smaller than the changing mat or the space intended for it.

Since there are always deviations of 1-2 cm in the production of changing mats (and all other textiles), the changing mat can, with bad luck, be a little too big for the changing table. If you buy the changing mat first, you are limited by the dimensions of the changing table. With the 70x80 cm changing mat you are making a safe choice as it leaves a maximum of 2.5 cm of space on the left and right of the changing table. However, with a changing mat with a high cushion filling (approx. 4 cm), the cm on the sides are hardly visible.
