Change tables are nursery furniture items used when changing babies’ nappies. The tables are made of either metal rods or wood. The nappy changing surface, cloth or foam covered with vinyl, is held in place, approximately one metre above the ground, by the supporting metal or wooden frame. Change tables may also have shelves underneath the changing surface for storage of nappy changing essentials such as nappies and wipes. Some metal framed change tables double up as baby baths and hence have a bath accessory.
