When i plan on decorating my nursery i’m not even having a changing table. I don’t think it’s necessary and it’s easier to just change them on the floor. Or some people have a changing table add on ontop of the dresser, maybe you could look into those.

I think you should and check out a few different styles/heights of dressers/tables to see what works for you (and bring a tape measure). I prefer it somewhere close to my natural waist height, but DH is a good 10″-11″ taller than me (without shoes) so we’re probably going with whatever suits me. I don’t like the tables that are too high as it gets cumbersome having to haul the baby that high up every time. Waist height is about right as it’s not lifting the baby way high up in the air but then not so low that my arms are super stretched out (if that makes sense). I can’t give you a specific height as I’m quite a bit shorter than you.

We used three surfaces as changing tables.  When DD was brand new, we changed her on the kitchen table on a towel (I don’t know how this started actually, don’t worry, we totally cleaned the table after that stopped).  It was too low unless you sat down.  Which worked for me, while I was healing.

Then, we changed her in the changing thing that came with the pack and play, and it was also too low.  That only lasted about four weeks, max.  It was killer on the back.  (It was about hip height.)

Her changing table sits a couple of inches above my waist.  It’s PERFECT.  She’s 8.5 months old now, and I still love it.  When DS comes home, we’ll go straight to the changing table.
