We lab test and review the latest change tables to help you find the best for you and your baby. Our change table buying guide will help you decide which type you need, and how we test explains our testing rigour.

Safety recall: IKEA has recalled the SUNDVIK Change Table after reports of falls due to the foldable part of the table which may become loose or break when the safety hinges aren't used as directed. For more, go to the Product recalls website.

A change table should be stable, sturdy, and designed to prevent falls, and should also be free from hazards like sharp edges or finger traps.

Although there are no current Australian standards for change tables, our experts know what to look for and base test procedures on existing standards for similar children's products such as cots. We also look at the American standard for baby changing tables, ASTM 2388. Our tests reveal:

  • which models are more likely to prevent falls
  • which models pass all key safety tests
  • whether any models failed our roll-off, stability and strength of construction tests.

Our interactive comparison tool helps you find out which brands passed all our key safety tests. Our Recommended list will help you see quickly which models come out on top.

    There is no Australian Standard for baby change tables. Our test method is based on relevant clauses from Australian Standards for nursery furniture such as for cots, and from the American standard for baby changing tables, ASTM F 2388.

    We test for:

    Stability We apply about 20kg of downward force to the edge of the table to see if it tilts or tips over.

    Strength of construction We put a 50kg mass in the centre of the changing surface for 60 seconds and check for any damage to the table.

    Roll-off protection (whether the table will prevent a baby rolling or sliding from the change surface). The table is tilted sideways at 15° and a 15kg test cylinder is placed at the upper edge of the changing surface and released. If it rolls off the bottom edge, the table fails.

    Sharp edges and protrusions Any edges or points that could injure a child on the table are noted.

    Finger and limb traps Any gaps or holes that could trap a small finger or limb are tested with a set of special probes.
