Best Changing Pad Covers of 2017
Let’s be honest: there’s nothing fun about changing dirty diapers. As much as we love our babies, no one enjoys it. Luckily, changing pad covers can brighten up the process.
You’ll most likely be using a changing pad as a soft, safe place to hold your child while you change them (be sure to check out our Best Changing Table and Pad picks). A changing pad cover is handy for two reasons. One, the cover can protect the actual pad from any accidents or messes. If your cover gets soiled, just throw it in the washer (we recommend getting two or three covers to switch out in between washes). Second, changing pad covers come in a huge range of lovely and fun colors and prints.
Changing diapers may never become your favorite baby-and-me activity, but a nice (even cute) changing pad cover can make it a little more pleasant. Here are our favorite covers from the past year.
STANDOUT PATTERNS FROM IVIEBABY
Iviebaby is one of our favorite Shop Small stores. Elizabeth Ivie designs and handmakes these extraordinary covers that feature a variety of fun and bold patterns- many of which are gender-neutral (a tricky find with a majority of shops). These peaceful winter birches add a soothing note to the nursery’s decor.
MAGICAL MOMENTS FROM THE LAND OF NOD
The Land of Nod specializes in products that give your nursery a fantastic, fairy tale feel. With prints that are custom-designed by a range of talented artists, these covers will bring a touch of whimsy (and high quality) to your changing table.
What could be more cheerful than this brilliant array of lemons?
GENTLE & SIMPLE FROM ADEN + ANAIS
This jungle jam giraffe fabric is so much fun: you can even buy a giraffe toy that matches.

Choosing what’s right for you
A great changing pad cover is a fun way to add a bit of color to a not-so-fun activity. With many options to choose from, you can even express your personal style and coordinate your cover with your baby’s bedding and other accessories.
