Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amanda1 Good Product We made a changing table out of a dresser and this works perfectly! Very easy to attach and most all of the covers I've tried fit. March 10, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by AZ Adaptable I built my own changing table and used standard specs - this mattress fits the bill. It has two snaps on the side, so I could build those in to the underside of my table & the pad does not slide. It also has high sides. I wanted these two features since my changing table has no guard rail - - it will later convert into a flat-top dresser. I've opted to strap the safety belt under the open table top since I won't be leaving my child unattended. I've been using a wet cloth on it at least once a week for 18 months, and there are only a couple of minor spots starting to tear. Still completely usable, and those spots are under the cover. It works perfectly with both brands of cover that I purchased. October 20, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Viba424 Made in the USA It is very important to me to buy American made products whenever I can, especially those made with foam or lots of plastic. I am familiar with Colgate products, the manufacturer of my Stokke crib mattress, so I knew it would be a quality item. The pad itself is a well made, standard size contoured pad with straps and nice high sides. It fits my changing pad covers perfectly and doesnt make the fabric ripple or pucker. Im glad I did my resarch and held out for this one. Highly recommended. October 19, 2009

Q:How high are the sides of the pad? Also, does it have 3 raised sides or just 2?
Q:Hello - I recently read an article in the NYT about the chemical Chlorinated Tris which is used in mattresses as a flame retardant but can cause cancer. Is this chemical present in the Giggle / Colgate contoured changing pad or the Giggle / Colgate 2 in 1 convertible mattress? Thanks!
A:giggle's Better Basics Dual Firmness Crib Mattress is made in partnership with Colgate, a trusted manufacturer of children's mattresses for over 30 years. This mattress is in compliance with Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Mattress Flammability Standards 16 CFR 1632 and 16 CFR 1633, and uses a chemical-free, felted cotton outer-layer as a flame barrier. The Better Basics Antimicrobial Contoured Changing Pad is not classified as a "mattress", and therefore is not required to meet flammability regulations.
In addition, all Colgate products are GreenGuard certified. In order to be GreenGuard certified, each individual raw material was tested for volatile organic compounds (VOC's) as well as the final product, which is a combination of those raw materials. As GreenGuard certified products must meet stringent requirements for chemical emissions and toxicity, such as being screened for over 10,000 different chemicals including irritants, carcinogens and reproductive toxins, giggle is confident that our Better Basics Dual Firmness Crib Mattress and Better Basics Antimicrobial Contoured Changing Pad are the healiest conventional options.
Q:Does this changing pad contain PVC or polyurethane?
A:giggle's Better Basics Antimicrobial Changing Pad, made in partnership with Colgate, contains both PVC and Polyurethane. However, this, and all Colgate mattress products, are GreenGuard certified. In order to be GreenGuard certified, each individual raw material was tested for VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) as well as the final product, which is a combination of those raw materials. As GreenGuard certified products must meet stringent requirements for chemical emissions and toxicity, such as being screened for over 10,000 different chemicals including irritants, carcinogens and reproductive toxins, giggle is confident that our Better Basics Antimicrobial Changing Pad is the healiest conventional pad option.
Q:Does this come with the strap to secure to the dresser, as well as with security snaps for strapping the baby in?
A:giggle's Better Basics Antimicrobial Contoured Changing Pad is equipped with two snap-straps, and one snap hardware pack that contains two snap-screws to mount the pad to a dresser; and a security strap for the baby. It's super-easy to securely mount the pad to any low dresser, and super-safe for changing baby!
