Discover the best boys changing mats

Baby boys changing mats can help to take some of the struggle out of what can be an even bigger challenge than changing a girl's nappy.

It's a simple fact that boys are equipped a little differently, and that raises several important questions that can be answered using a baby boy changing mat.

With a great range of gender-neutral changing mat prints, Mama Shack have everything you need to keep your baby in place until their new clean nappy is taped securely into place.

Why are boys changing mats so important?

There's one good reason why baby changing mats for boys are arguably even more important than girls changing mats.

While baby girls might do a wee mid-change, boys are more likely to do a 'weeeeee!' thanks to their built-in fire hose.

If you've ever been on the receiving end of this human sprinkler system, you'll already know why a quick and comfy nappy change is crucial.

How do the best boys changing mats help?

Wedge changing mats have raised sides to keep your baby in the middle of the mat throughout their nappy change.

For boys, this reduces the risk of any spills making it clear of the mat, while also keeping your baby stable as you position his plumbing inside his new clean nappy.

Keep him aiming downwards and there's less chance of a nappy leak the next time he does a wee - and it's all much easier to do with the gentle support of a wedge changing mat.
