The DBW changing pad measures approximately 22" by 17" in length - a perfect size. It has a beautiful cotton print on one side and a super-soft unbleached organic cotton as the reverse. The first thing I noticed about it was how vibrant the colors are on the cotton print - the pictures do not do it justice! The second thing I noticed was how nicely it was made. The fabrics are substantial, not thin, and of course it's washable!
I would hate for this to be limited as just a changing pad. Around here it's been miserably hot and humid. At the suggestion of a friend, I folded the two sides in and lined our seat with it, and it helps wick the moisture away. As an added bonus, our carseat got a facelift! With Fall just around the corner in the Midwest, it would also be nice to have the flannel side facing out.
Here are a few more action shots of the "changing pad" in use over the last few weeks.

|If you're missing your "changing pad", check to see if it's being snuggled with - it's that soft!!|
I would love to see an option for a second generation changing pad with a layer of PUL sewn in! I would call it "not-just-a-changing pad" :)
Need one? Find it here at Mami's and Papi's where it's available in beautiful prints that coordinate with some of the DBW's other items such as aprons, booties, and wetbags! There are even military-print yellow ribbon items from which a portion of the purchase goes to the USO.
Until next time!
