By Carla Changing Mat Review & Giveaway!


You may have seen my recent review of the Nougat Nursing Pillow from By Carla, well I was also given the opportunity to review the Stain Resistant Luxury Changing Mat too! Up until now we have had a typical plastic changing mat from Matalan, which does the job but isn't at all comfy and is always cold! When Amelia was younger I would always lay a towel down on top of it and sometimes a cushion for her head, well this changing mat has all of these perks intact!

The changing mat comes with a luxury pillow to allow full support of your babies head and a removable and washable stain resistant towel liner allowing for those messy times to be convenient to change your baby. This changing mat is music to any parents ears!



We were sent the Luxury Changing Mat in black which is great as it is gender neutral. I love the softness of the fabric, and that it isn't cold like the original plastic changing mats. The fact that it comes with a pillow is pure genius as Amelia hates lying flat on the floor so this gives her that little bit of added support. 


The only improvement I would have to suggest is that the mat could come with a spare cover for when the other one is in the wash. Or even if you could purchase another cover. That would be brilliant. Other than that I couldn't fault this changing mat and would definitely recommend it to any parent looking for a changing mat with added comfort for baby. In fact, I have been telling all my mummy friends about this changing mat and insisting that they buy it instead of the cheap ones.

  2. I would love to win this mat! My little cutie is terrified of public changing tables. I think having the pillow there for added support is seriously amazing! I think he would do really well if he could see his surroundings a little better!
