Patemm Change Pad

12 Aug

UPDATE Sept 4/10 Congrats to #21 Dusty B

I never thought I would say that I was in love with a change pad, but this one had me at hello!!  Thanks to Silly Pants I had the wonderful opportunity to review the Patemm Change Pad, and it get a lot of use with Dominic, 12 weeks old.  Oh boy, did it ever get good use when he finally had a bowel movement after 6 days of none 😉 

My diaper bag comes with a change mat attached to it, but the Patemm is so revolutionary that I will continue to bring it along and use it ALL THE TIME!  Patemm coins their mat as the “patemm® pad- a smart, stylish and practical solution to the diaper bag.”  Do they ever live up to it! What I loved the most about this change pad is that I could take the mat on outings, with a cloth diaper and change of clothes stuffed in one of the pockets.  I didn’t have to carry a big diaper bag if I didn’t want to.  Everything I needed was right there.When finished changing I could put the dirty diaper in one of the pockets and continue on with my day.  That being said I would advise that you don’t be forgetful like us and leave a cloth diaper full of pee inside the pocket for 2 days.  IT WILL STINK! The good news? I put the mat in the sink with a little bit of dish soap and cleaned it right up, smell and all.  I would like to see some of the pockets designed a little larger to be able to fit more of my cloth diapering accessories. It would fit a few disposables no problem, with wipes, cream, etc. but I found it hard to carry more than one prefold and cover without making it too bulky.  When going out for the day I need to bring a few prefolds and an extra cover and would be unable to do so if I was just taking the mat with me.  A pocket that was wider and deeper would have solved this for our cloth diapering need. 

This is the first change pad I have ever seen that is round.  My little guy could move his arms and legs as much as he wanted and never did I have to worry that he would touch whatever dirt was around us when we were out.  No I am not one of those moms who worry about a little dirt on the grocery cart, but I am one of those moms who will put her child on the floor and change them anywhere!

The mat is soooo simple to fold up, check it out here No matter what way you fold it up you just pull the handle over it and you are ready to go!  There are 4 handles so no matter how you fold it up there is a handle right there ready to go! Did I mention you can fold it up with one hand while holding a squirmy baby?! I know, impressive! 

And you know what? The mat is multi-purpose! Use it as a carry all for crafts, or items for when you go out with your child. Going to a restaurant or to your oldest childs ballet class? Bring the mat along with some crayons, paper, cars, etc. and your children have an instant place to play!  Some kind of hook on the pad or another way to attach it to the outside of diaper bags (for example would have been helpful when our diaper bag was full and we still wanted to bring it on an overnight trip) or when we just wanted to take the pad and were out with the stroller. 

The Patemm has a price point of $55+, depending on the pattern and colour you choose, and in my opinion is worth every penny.  If you weren’t planning on using this mat as a diaper bag when going on short outings then it may be a little high price. However, if  like us, you use the mat to put your baby items in when going on short outings (ie: walk, grocery store, etc.) then I believe its worth the cost.  This item has become a staple in our baby items that we carry everywhere with us.  I am so glad that I discovered this wonderful item while still on my first child! I know it will be used over and over again with the next ones to come! The next time I have to buy a baby gift this will be it. 

A Giveaway!

    I have wanted one of these since Gracie was born! I love the colours/patterns, and that fact that it speaks to the fact that babies, especially older babies like Naomi, never stay in one place during diaper changes!!

    The Patemm pad is BRILLIANT because I too am the kind of mommy who will lay their baby down anywhere to change ’em. Most places surprisingly do NOT have changing tables, && trying to lay her over my legs just isn’t an option unless i want to get pooped or peed on (been there, done that) I’m also digging that no diaper bag is necessary! My “diaper bag” usually ends up being a catch all because I can’t carry a diaper bag and a purse.
