I am expecting my first child in July and need advice. I do not like the pine cots so thinking of buying a Graco Contour Electra (all singing all dancing)This comes with a changer which fits the top. Do I need a stand alone changer ? what is most useful?
We have a travel cot which has the changer attached and I found it useful for setting up downstairs when dd was very little for naps etc. However we do not have a change table at all as her room has a bed in it and so we just have a change mat that we use on top of the other bed. In our old place we just changed her on a mat on our bed or on the lounge room floor.
If you get the cot with the changer I would not bother buying a stand alone changer - perhaps a nice chest of drawers to hold baby clothes and then the top can hold all the changing bits and pieces.
