BabyDam – The Original Changing Mat Reviews

Product Tested By Beth Brixey-Budhan – Barney 4 Months

Beth Awarded The BabyDam Original Changing Mat 4.5/5

I loved the shape of it and that it had sides especially as my son rolls and has just started to roll constantly when we try to change him. The quality felt great and I was surprised how soft and comfortable it felt when I squeezed it. I chose the grey colour as we don’t like having everything blue because we have a boy. The shape looked practical but modern. I personally didn’t like the pattern on the top as it is very busy but that’s because I like plain designs or block patterns. However my husband really liked the pattern! It was great and simple to use. I put it on my changing table and Barney loved being in it. The sides on it make me feel so much safer when I change him. Barney loves this changing mat. The padding is thick and soft which means even when he kicks his legs (which he does a lot), he has so much padding to protect him. The sides keep him in place but are wide enough so that he isn’t pinned in. I totally agree the extra thickness of this gives my baby support.  We have recently started baby massage and I do this after his evening bath on the mat. The padding is so soft that Barney is comfortable and again doesn’t roll and excite himself which helps with the massage. Barney has been rolling since he was just under 3 months old but recently he rolls as soon as you put him down. I was at a point where we could  only change him on the floor which wasn’t great for mine or my husband’s backs. The side boosters keep Barney in place so we can go back to changing him on his changing table. He is much happier and so are we! I have used it for massage but not playtime as Barney enjoys rolling and I like to give him a big space to roll freely in. Great for cleaning. After use, I use a wet wipe or wet flannel to quickly wipe the may over. The material allows quick cleaning with no marks being left behind. It also dries quickly. I would use this at least twice a day (changing him in the morning and after his bath at night). In the day, I tend to use a travel mat we have downstairs so I don’t have to keep going upstairs. However, recently we have started bringing the mat down with us to use for every change as it stops Barney rolling which makes it easier for us to change him. Mainly used this on Barney’s changing table as it gives the extra safety with the sides so I know he won’t fall off. I loved the sides.  They have been a lifesaver thanks to how lively Barney is and how much he moves. Great quality. I like the material and how quickly it is to clean along with the feel and texture of it. I also love the design. Before I had Barney, I shopped around for changing mats and don’t remember seeing any others with side barriers. The changing mat I had before was slightly cheaper but was a lot thinner and not as good quality. The only thing I would suggest would be that it be a little longer and wider so that it fills the top of my changing table. I would buy this due to the side barriers make changing Barney so much easier. He is a lovely baby who loves to move so any help to keep him still whilst changing is appreciated. I would recommend especially if their baby is a mover. I would tell them how easy it is to clean and how it gives you the extra security that their baby will be safe up on the cha gong table thanks to the safety barriers. I loved this product. I’m being really picky so the only things I’d change would be the size (make it slightly longer and wider) and the pattern. I’d love this in a plain colour or more of a block pattern. I’d also love it in a wider variety of colours such as green!  We loved the product. Both my husband and myself used it and we both commented on how much we loved the side barriers. The design is great and we love how thick it is padded. Barney loves being changed on it and we are going to be keeping it as our main changing mat from now on! I wish I had known about it before!  Beth Brixey-Budhan – Barney 4 Months

Product Tested By Michelle Pick – Freya 11 Months

Michelle Awarded The BabyDam Original Changing Mat 4/5

Well packaged and looked very good quality. Design is lovely and subtle and fits in with other items in the room. It was very easy to use and very firm. It was nice to lay Freya on and was firm. This did give her support and I no longer have to worry about her dropping her head down as the thickness protects her head. I loved the side bolsters they are lovely and very effective when using it on a change table. It adds extra padding to avoid hurting herself on the side on the table. Just used this as a change mat. Very easy to keep clean and easy to wipe down. I used this for every nappy change. I would use on the change table and in the bedroom. I really liked the extra thickness compared to other change mats I have used. Very good quality and padding. It is a little expensive for me, but after testing it. It’s much better for Freya being extra padded. Personally I would not buy this and the only reason for this is it isn’t long enough for Freya. I would recommend as it is lovely quality. Lovely product. Made with brilliant quality and extra thickness to the Mat to help protect my little ones head. The sides also help her not to wriggle so much. My only wish would be for it to be a bit longer as my daughter is tall so doesn’t fit majority of her body on. Michelle Pick – Freya 11 Months

Product Tested By Angela Chase – Evelyn 5 Months

Angela Awarded The BayDam Original Changing Mat 4.7/5

Really liked the look of this very different to all the other change mats I have used in the past as this is my 4th child. The shape is really good and looks comfortable. Good design and well made. This was so easy to lay Evelyn on and change her just a breeze. She was as happy as larry lying on this and did not wriggle too much, so must have been comfortable. The thickness of this change mat is reassuring as I know it is supportive for Evelyn and comfy place to change her on. I did use this for baby massage and she was calm, comfy and relaxed. Loved the raised sides as totally stopped her rolling off which gave me peace of mind. So easy to keep clean just spray with cleaner and wipe and all done. I used this daily for nappy changes and of course after bath time for baby massage. Used at home in the nursery and in the living room when changing her. I really loved the design and the high sides a great safety aspect which gave me peace of mind. Really good quality I was impressed. It is a little expensive but now after using this I would say to anyone well worth investing in as one of the best I have used. I do not need one now but I would buy as a gift for my sister who is due in January next year. I would recommend for all of the reasons above. I really did enjoy using this change mat as it was so comfortable for Evelyn and the higher sides kept her safe and stopped her from rolling onto floor while changing her.  Was surprised how impressed I was and it is well worth buying.
