We used our's once in 1 year. The floor, bed, couch, ottoman, wherever, is so much easier. But I am pretty short (5'0) and couldn't get into the right position to change because the table was a tad too high for me. IMO, there are lots of better (and more fun things) to spend your money on!

That is what my girl friend said, and for storage, we can get some shelves or book cases...thanks for your input!

The only reason I got one was bc I found a great deal on it. I really didn't think I'd use it too much but I always use it! We have a 2 story place too but I just find it so much easier to not have to stoop over to change her and having everything always ready in one place. But it's all personal opinion..if you're not sure about it, maybe get a larger dresser and just put a changing pad on it..that way, you're not really wasting a lot if you end up not using it much :)

I'm planning on just getting a dresser and using a changing pad on the top of that. Great for storage and it will still be functional later on....

I had one and used it quite often when she was younger, but now that she is older, and walking around, we swapped it out for a dresser. I did put the pad on the top and occasionally use it but rarely. I only used a changing table because it was a hand-me-down and also a dresser.

we used the changing table (remember three nephews) for the 2nd baby. but when 3 came along it was more of a nuisance and went to floor couch and bed diaper changes... finally i broke down back in June and potty trained cayden bc 3 diaper changes every hour- hour 1/2 was getting to be too much!

MIL was trying to talk me into it but i declined. I really felt it wasn't necessary and for me, it was the right decision.
