Changing padAngelaHigh quality and comfortable for baby to change her on5
A must for blowouts!TRISTYN P.I originally discovered this when I was pregnant with my son and realized quickly how perfect it was for changing baby and then discovered how awesome it was to have when he had a blowout. It kept everything contained! It was awesome! Now with my daughter I went and got another one because I knew having a child in diapers this thing is a freaking must! Highly recommend this as a gift or even for yourself!5
Great checking pad.JACOBI like that it’s one sided and has the bumpers. It also fits snug into the changing table.5
It’s a little bit expensiveKimIt’s a little bit expensive but one of the only pads that will fit my changing table.5
Great!SuzanneI was hesitant to purchase this as it felt that it was filled with air and I am used to the traditional changing pads but baby was due and I needed it now so I took my chances and it is great! It is soft and comfortable for baby! Great soft edges to keep baby in, and better than traditional pads because it does not crack!!!5
Quality above expectedAmel M.Quality above expected5
Does not fit SNIGLAR changing tablenafanya33The pad is a nice quality and seams to be steady. BUT it does NOT fit standard SNIGLAR changing table (too long).1
Well worth the priceNicolabeanI thought this might be cheap, but it has held up so great the last 2 1/2 months from daily use. I have it on a changing table and then move to table when I bathe baby and need something soft to place baby on after bath.5
Strong and sturdy but soft as wellAdriSchmidzenGreat price, great size. Strong enough for a rambunctious toddler but will also be soft and comfy enough for a newborn.5
Works WellWin2020It was a great buy, bought a second one for travel.5
Fantastic Changing PadJames1991This fits perfectly on the Solgul changing table. It's liquid resistant, large, and firm: perfect for baby. The edges are thick and raised to prevent an active baby from rolling off of it. Cant beat it for $14.995
Me2MeLove it!! The size is ideal for a growing babies we have three under three and it’s perfect!5
BeckloveIt’s good but doesn’t fit ikea standard changing table3
LoverachomperooI love how high the bumpers are on the side. It's also made of a material that is some kind of plastic and it was really easy to wipe down before putting on the corresponding VADRA changing pad. I dig it :) Fits well in the Gulliver Changing Table5
Can"t ask for moreawb14So glad we didn't get the $40 one from BBB. This was low-cost and does the job! The plastic is thick so thus far a few months in it has not torn from heavy use. The padding is adequately firm. It fits our changing table, and baby, nicely!5
Love this soft and thickTressa60Best one ever! Stays exactly the way I git it! No dents5
No goodNekramer28I bought this because it was such a great deal, but we had already bought a furniture set from my husband's job, Art Van Furniture. Well we got the set together and the pad is too wide and doesn't fit. It ONLY fits ikeas cheap furniture. Honestly wasn't in love with it anyway. It's lights and hard as a brick like Styrofoam but what do you expect for 14.99.1
Excell Changing PadAnthonyBThis is our second changing pad from ikea. The first was an inflatable changing pad. The inflatable pad lasted a little while but the first hard kick down by the infant and it blew one of the chambers of air out and would not stay inflated after that. This one is memory foam feeling and is more substantial than the inflatable one. I would buy this one if I were you.5

Our take on polyester

Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions. The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products. In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.

Virgin vs recycled polyester

Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products. When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.

Some challenges with recycled polyester

Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material (this excludes potential dyeing and other post recycled polyester production treatments). With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.

Only recycled polyester

IKEA is committed to end the dependency on virgin fossil materials and only use renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We are accelerating this movement for polyester in our range and aim to replace all virgin polyester in our textile products with recycled. In 2020, IKEA replaced 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products with recycled polyester. In volume, this means we converted 130,000 metric tonnes of recycled polyester, and saved 200,000 tonnes of virign polyester. We haven’t reached our 100% goal yet, but we have come far and overcome many obstacles on the way. These volumes make us a leader in converting to recycled polyester and we hope that our decisions can inspire and motivate whole industries to change.

Responsible sourcing

At IKEA, we demand that all recycled polyester used in IKEA products shall come from recyclers that are compliant with the Global Recycled Standard and traceability is secured to the IKEA product through requirements toward the IKEA Suppliers. By only using recycled polyester that meets the Global Recycled Standards we manage to secure social, environmental and chemical practices at the recycler’s production. We believe that the GRS standard is the best standard on the market today. We work with our partners and textile organisations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.

What is recycled polyester?

When we create products from recycled polyester, PET bottles, and other sources, they get a new life in products like textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts, and even lamps. When using them, you get to enjoy exactly the same quality and function as with virgin polyester products. And naturally, they’re just as clean and safe in every way. And perhaps the very best part – you contribute to using less new raw materials too.
