Nynke talks about her experience with the wall-mounted table
November 12, 20212 min read
With my hip I lean against the changing table. Her hand clamps around my thumb as I take off her pajamas. Her lungs fill with air and a pruillip announces great sorrow. Two seconds later she cries from the depths of her soul. She is 5 weeks old and the world is tough. Her room is the smallest cubicle in the house, but with the mountains we painted on the wall and a wooden changing table that you can fold up, a place that will hopefully bring her a lot of security. But changing, that remains a bit sad.
The changing table is made with love
The changing table is made with love by my best friend and her husband. When her son was born, it turned out that there were few changing tables on the market for tall people and they designed a changing table that you can hang on the mitten at your height and fold it up again when you are done. A fantastic solution for our small children's room.
The shelves are also handy
On the shelves of the changing table are the washable diapers, the trendy prints have become my new addiction. If you go for a sustainable changing table, then you have to do it really well, we have decided. So we went all the way for sustainability. I fold a fish-patterned diaper around my little one's buttocks. This is the moment she stops crying and looks at me with big eyes. It's done again. When I lift her up I give her a big kiss, what a sweetheart she is. In her crib, she falls peacefully into a deep sleep.
I also fold my laundry on
it I sigh, finally time for the laundry. The changing mat makes way for a large pile of unfolded rompers. Humming, I fold up the laundry. With a large pile of folded laundry between my arms and chin, I walk to the closet. With my free elbow I close the changing table. It's time for the lukewarm tea that has been waiting for me downstairs for half an hour.
Life with a little one, beautiful and quite tiring.
Hey Hello, we are Melanie and Joost and have two children Max and Fleur. If you have lost us, we are on the water, because we love sailing. We met at Orionis the Amsterdam student sailing club, where I organized the competition, and Joost won the competition.
Together with my husband I like to go out with camper "Goofy".
Joost is a sustainability consultant and furniture designer . I, am the business brain and a Mac enthusiast. As an online product owner I take care of the online part of Babywoods.
Binnen de professionele kinderopvang is de inrichting van een verschoonplek een van de belangrijkste aspecten van de werkplek. Veel baby’s, peuters en kleuters worden in de loop van de dag, meerdere malen en vaak door verschillende verzorg(st)ers verschoond. Daarom staan veiligheid en ergonomie voorop. Uiteraard is de hygiëne ook een heel belangrijk punt.
My company was founded during my first maternity week. In 2016 I gave birth to my son, because of my delivery I suffered from pelvic instability where I was advised to walk as few stairs as possible. Joost, my husband, made the first model wall changing table as a maternity gift and hung it on the toilet so that I did not have to walk upstairs to change our son.
He received plenty of compliments from maternity care and midwives. They also told me that there may be more parents interested in this handy product
