Our Analysis

This portable changing station is a great accessory for moms and babies on-the-go! With it, you can change baby just about anywhere, even on bathroom floors (because not all public bathrooms are baby-friendly) and other potentially germ-full areas. The Skip Hop Pronto! Changing Station is small enough to fit into most bags and purses, and can also be strapped to your wrist or clipped to your stroller or the side of a diaper bag.

This spacious, removable changing pad is extremely easy to travel with and keep clean; there's a cushion (the "pronto pillow") at the head area to make it more comfortable for baby; a see-through case for wipes; a mesh pocket with room for up to 6 smaller-sized (4 larger-sized) disposable diapers and some toiletries like diaper cream, lotion, hand sanitizer, or sunscreen; and a zip pocket on the front for any other small items, like make-up, keys, money, a cell phone, an extra baby onesie, infant toy or teether, burp cloth, etc.

Made of materials free of BPA and Phthalates, this changing pad has the following dimensions (in inches): when closed, 8.75 wide x 11.5 high x 1 deep; changing pad 21.5 wide x 21.5 long.

We think that if you can only carry around one compact item for baby while you're out running errands or out for a meal, the Skip Hop Pronto! Changing Station is it. It comes in lots of hip and fun styles (the ones pictured here are part of the Jonathan Adler collection), and is also very compatible with the Skip Hop Duo, the BabyGearLab Editors' Choice for Best Dad Diaper Bag.
