in between potty and diapers

What did you do when your child was too heavy for the changing table, but not quite ready to be potty trained?

  • You can change him on a towel on the bed or in the floor. How heavy is too heavy for a changing table? I'm still using one with my 2 1/2 year old who weighs 27.5 pounds.

  • my goodness, i haven't changed my dd on a changing table in well over a year. I just change her on the carpet at home. She is horrible with changing tables in public in general, throws a fit if i have to lay her down, so I usually change her by laying her on the seat of the car if we are out. Maybe try some pull ups, might be easier to change than a diaper.

  • I always start use the floor or bed by 5/6 months. I get tired of squirmy babies in the table. This baby never had a changing table. :)
