You've finally done it! Your nursery is complete.
You have the bassinet or cot set up for the baby to sleep in. You have a changing table or dresser to change the nappy on. And you have the pad to rest your little angel on while you change their nappy. All you need now is a cover for your change table pad so you can keep everything nice and clean.
My Little Wardrobe offers a range of change table covers that come in a variety of colours and patterns to match your style or your nursery's theme. Plus, they're relatively inexpensive, so you won't have to break the bank to get them. Just be sure to get 2 or 3 spares.
My Little Wardrobe covers are easy to wash and machine dryable, so you won't have to worry about any accidents. Just toss them in the wash with your other laundry and they'll come out good as new!
Do You Need a Changing Table Cover?
Yes, you definitely do. Unless you want to replace the pad after every nappy change, investing in a change pad cover is a wise decision for any parent. They help keep your changing table clean and they add a touch of colour to your nursery.
Change table covers come in a multitude of cute designs that will look great in an animal or nature nursery theme. Some of your design choices include pineapples, cacti, and howling wolves. If your nursery has a more neutral theme, then the bohemian design will go with just about anything.
Can You Put a Changing Pad on a Regular Dresser?
If you don't have a changing table and are wondering if you can just put the pad on top of a regular dresser, the answer is yes! You can definitely do this. Just be sure to get a change table cover that doesn't slide around (and so it's easy to clean).
You can also attach velcro straps to secure the pad to the dresser. This is a great option if you don't want to invest in a changing table but still want a safe and secure place to change your baby's nappy.
How Do You Get a Changing Pad to Stay on a Dresser?
If you don't have a changing pad with built-in straps, there are a few things you can do to keep it in place.
- You can buy special clips that attach the pad to the dresser (these can be found at most baby stores).
- You can put a washcloth or towel under each corner of the pad to help it grip to the surface and keep it in place.
- You can use double-sided tape to stick the pad to the dresser (just be sure to test a small area first to make sure it doesn't damage the finish on your dresser).
Whichever method you choose, just be sure that the pad is secure before you place your baby on it.
What Bedding Do You Need for a Bassinet?
You'll need a few things to get started:
- A fitted sheet that's specific to your bassinet's size
- A mattress pad (optional but recommended)
- A blanket (or two)
- A comforter or quilt
You might also want:
- A bumper to protect your baby's head from knocking against the sides of the bassinet
- A storage bag or box to keep all of your bedding in one place
Do All Bassinet Sheets Fit All Bassinets?
No, they don't. There are different sizes of bassinets, so you'll need to make sure you get the right size sheets for your particular bassinet.
The good news is that most bassinet sheets are clearly labelled according to size, so it's easy to find the right ones. Just be sure to measure your bassinet mat before you buy the sheets. My Little Wardrobe stocks many different brands of bassinet sheets so you can find the size you need.
Are All Bassinet Sheets the Same Size?
Bassinet sheets come in similar sizes but they’re not exactly the same. My Little Wardrobe has different brands of bassinet sheets and each brand of bassinet sheet differs slightly in size, so be sure you get the right one.
Here are the sizes we have available for you to choose from:
- Anchor & Arrow bassinet sheets are 80cm long x 48cm wide x 10cm tall
- Olive June and Co bassinet sheets are 76cm long x 40cm wide

Do You Need a Waterproof Mattress Protector For a Cot?
Yes, you will definitely need a waterproof cot sheet. This will help keep the cot clean if there are any accidents. My Little Wardrobe’s mattress protectors have a leak-proof lining and are machine washable. They fit almost all cot mattresses and you won't need any extra fitted sheets.
