I’m sure we’re all familiar with this scene: You’re trying to change your baby on the changing table and your little one has a different idea. They are playing, wiggling, and fighting to get free from the dreaded changing table. It takes all your energy to keep them on their back just long enough to get their butts cleaned, then they’re flying past you trying to swan dive off the table again. Exhausted and defeated, you throw the pants on the floor and say “just forget it”.
Recently a friend of mine introduced me to the Wiggle Worm Wrap. This thing is pure genius and a true lifesaver! I got to know the designer and inventor, Stephanie, who is also a mom in the Bay Area. She is a mother to three adorable children, and she knows the struggles of changing a feisty baby first hand. She launched her product in 2016 and since has watched her business grow.
“My son was distracting me, I turned my head for a second and she was nearly off of the edge. I caught her but it scared me enough to look for a solution. I couldn’t believe that there wasn’t something out there that could attach to all changing surfaces. I wanted something that would attach to my existing changing pad, travel crib changing tables, and (though I didn’t think of it until after I created the Wiggle Worm Wrap) public restroom changing tables too.
When I came up with the design for the Wiggle Worm Wrap, I bought a sewing machine, taught myself to sew, went through half a dozen prototypes, and finally came up with the Wiggle Worm Wrap. I am a stay at home mom, a one woman shop, and I do it all from my living room.”
What I love about this product is that it’s totally universal. It can be used on virtually any changing table, whether it be the one you have at home or one at the restaurant your family invaded. It’s so easy to use and can easily be packed in the diaper bag.
It’s made out of lightweight, durable fabric and comes in 5 adorable patterns. It’s velcro fastening make it adjustable so it can fit any changing table, and it will even fit on the changing station of your Pack n’ Play when you travel. It’s also made to grow with your baby, so the restraint arms are made with adjustable velcro as well. It’s machine washable and can also be machine dried, which is a total must for me. They are made right here in San Francisco, so you can feel good about supporting local US companies too!
If you fight your little one on the changing table daily, then you should really invest in one of these. It’s been so helpful for us and now we can feel comfortable changing Lucy on the table. No more spontaneous swan dives for this girl!! She can still roll over a little bit, but it really does a good job of just calming her down in general. It makes changing time a lot more easy going and less stressful for everyone.
