I was recently sent a Lollipop Lane Herbs Garden Changing Mattress to review.
It has an RRP of £21.99. The Mattress is part of the Herbs Garden Nursery collection, so you can style your entire nursery with the gorgeous, neutral nursery range.
The Herbs Garden Changing Mattress is a high quality, well padded, wipe clean changing mat. It also has a pillow and towelling insert, to soak up any accidents.
The insert also stops your baby from getting the cold shock, which so often causes tears at changing time in our house. The pillow and insert are attached to the mattress by velcro, and they are washable.
I have been using it for a week now, and Sydney is definitely calmer when being changed on the insert, rather than the cold, plastic surface on most changing mats. The insert has absorbed plenty of accidents at changing time, and has prevented me needing to change Sydney’s clothes thanks to pee spreading across the changing mat – which is what would happen on a normal, non-lined changing mat.
The insert and pillow both washed and dried well, too.
My only criticism is that it doesn’t come with additional liners. Sydney’s needs washing daily as she likes to pee every time I change her nappy. I think that a slightly higher RRP but with 2 spare liners and pillows would make the Lollipop Lane Herbs Garden Changing Mattress better value and more functional.
The insert definitely removes the “Shock factor” which usually makes babies cry when they are put onto a cold changing mat.
All in all, I do recommend the Lollipop Lane Herbs Garden Changing Mattress – it looks great, feels thicker and comfier than any changing mat we have had before, and the insert definitely reduces changing time stress – until the liner is in the washing machine.
I rate it as 4/5 – losing 1 mark because you can’t buy the inserts separately.
