As a lazy second time mom, I rarely pull out the changing pad when my wee ones need a quick change. Occasionally a mat is required to shield their bums and noggins from the surface of a public restroom changing table. Since most diaper bags provide mamas with a roll type pad that is rarely long enough to cushion a toddler's head, I was tickled when I had the opportunity to test out the Ticklebug Baby changing kit ($49).

Compactly packaged in bright eye-catching prints, the velcro sealed tote unfolds into a changing pad that easily fits a toddler (head to toe) while providing mommy poopy nappy artillery. On each side of the cushioned mat, there are pouches for cream, wipes, diapers, and a wallet. To keep children entertained, there is a ring where mama can securely attach any sort of toy. And if mom is a germaphobe, she'll love the fact that the item is machine washable!
