Thought a changing pad was just a place to take care of dirty diapers and soiled outfits? Think again: With Hatch Baby’s smart system, parents can also track baby’s weight, growth, feeding and sleep schedule—making it our top pick for another year running.
- First order of business: The foam material is soft and comfy for baby to lay on. It can be wiped clean, meaning no cover required
- The pad doubles as a scale to track baby’s weight and growth in the weeks in between doctor’s appointments
- The corresponding app gives you a central place to record baby’s habits, which you can later reference when you’re with the pediatrician
Even if you only use it as a changing pad, the Hatch Baby Grow is superior thanks to its solid-but-soft construction and easiness to clean—but the smart scale feature and tracking app make it a welcome innovation.
