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.
