It was only two years ago we brought Knox home from the NICU and we were so scared and nervous about pretty much everything as new parents. I constantly worried about how much weight he was gaining and if he was getting enough milk via breast-feeding. Fast forward two years later, there is a new invention that has eased all these worries had the first time around.
When Hatch Baby reached out after Andrew was born to introduce their new product, this revolutionary changing table, I couldn’t get my hands on one fast enough. This product literally takes the guessing (and paper logging) out of bringing home a new baby!
My favorite feature is the scale. I love having the peace of mind that Andrew is growing and hitting new milestones without having to expose a newborn to all the germs at a doctor’s office. I use to get so excited for doctors appointments to hear his weight, but now I can weigh him when I want… down to a fraction of an ounce! This is also extremely helpful for breast-feeding (since you never really know how much they are getting each feeding). I change Andrew’s diaper and weigh him before and after breast-feeding so I can gauge how many ounces per feeding he is getting. Every time I do it, I can’t help but think of all the worry I had with Knox and ask myself where was this product two years ago! ha!
Other important features include logging diapers (wet, dirty or both), tracking sleep patterns, logging feedings (time, duration and side), and measuring length.
Equally important, you don’t have to physically be at the changing table to log your data, there is an App that syncs your smart phone (iPhone & Android) with your changing table! Other care takers can also download the App to easily share your information with a spouse, nanny or doctor. This is also great for accessing information on the go, logging feedings from a different locations, etc. (Even if you don’t have the changing table, it is a great free App to have for tracking sleep, feedings, and diapers!)
This may sound superficial, but you put so much love and care into designing a beautiful nursery for your baby, you don’t want to add something that is an eyesore every time you walk into the room. With this product, you don’t have to sacrifice form for function. The design is sleek and modern vs. the bulky eye sore of a traditional baby scale. The changing pad on top is soft and comes in several colors (ours is sky) to suit any nursery theme.
