If you don’t have a lot of space in the house or you don’t want to spend too much money on the changing table, an excellent solution is represented by the portable changing table. After all, having a place to change the diaper is a must, but the changing table itself is not and you can organize yourself differently with folding, inflatable or travel models. Let’s see the various possible options to choose from.
On the market we find different types of changing tables: from those that are placed directly on the cot to the one integrated in a cabinet with drawers that can also have a small tray for the first months, up to the folding ones, perfect for those who do not want to invest too much money in the purchase of a changing table or not has a lot of space.
Portable folding changing table

It is about intelligent creations that fold and can be easily hidden behind a door when not in use. Therefore, they also allow to optimize the unused spaces of the house, such as the walls behind the doors. If you don’t want to buy a real portable changing table and you don’t even want to make holes in the wall to install one on the wall, you can opt for a small folding table that you will open only when needed and that could have other uses in the future.
