Naturepedic Organic Changing Pad Review & Giveaway (02/02)

When baby T was born in November, I didn't have a safe place to change him. I made do with our bed (a mattress on the floor) and a waterproof sheet over it. Of course that couldn't last forever, especially when I realized I'll be changing him a lot throughout the day and I can't keep on moving this on and off the bed. So I was thankful and excited when Naturepedic sent us the Organic Changing Pad for review.

Since we have no changing table or any room for one, I placed this non-toxic changing pad on top of our dresser and it is at the perfect height for changing the baby. Plus it is convenient since the entire cloth diaper stash is in a drawer right below. I appreciate that it has four sides, so there is no spot for baby to scoot out. Of course the best thing about it is that the surface is organic cotton coated with clear, food-grade polyethylene - not toxic vinyl! I avoid vinyl in my home like the plague, not so much for environmental reasons as for health and indoor air issues. Vinyl is toxic and a known human carcinogen, nuff said. 

The core of the changing pad is just as important, instead of toxic polyurethane, this one is made of Air-Core - food grade polyethylene network of closed cell air pockets. The fabulous, high quality materials make for the best changing pad I've ever seen, and of course - no stink! You know how new vinyl smells like chemicals? I'm so glad not to have to deal with that. So if it was up to me, it would be either Naturepedic's Organic Changing Pad or nothing at all. I am very sensitive to chemical smells, I can't even pass by a person who uses Tide or other toxic detergent without feeling like I want to gag. Neither would I want my baby smelling something so toxic if I have a choice. Of course I want to share this absolutely awesome product with one of you...

One of you will win a Naturepedic Organic Changing Pad ($99 value, 2 or 4-sided)!
