Product Review: Boppy Changing Pad Liners

Boppy Pad Liners - The Boppy Company  - Babies"R"Us

Changing pad liners are a must--especially since our little boy likes to surprise attack once his diaper is off! I anticipated this while registering for my baby shower and asked for Boppy pad liners from Babies R Us. ($12.99 for a pack of 3)

The liners I have are perfect in theory. They are waterproof, save you the hassle of changing your pad cover with every mess, are machine washable/dryable, and are not too expensive. But here's the catch: they roll up like a scroll after the first wash, necessitating that you unroll the liner each time you put baby down for a change. ARG!

Since both line-drying and machine-drying caused the liners to roll, I see no way to avoid this except ironing the liners. This tired mama is just not in the mood for that!

I DO have a boppy liner that came with a changing pad cover gift set though that does not roll up and is just WONDERFUL. This liner is softer than the 3-pack liners and has a contrasting outer stitching that coordinates with the sand cover.

The strange thing, however, is that I got the same gift set in sage and it came with one of the annoying liners from the 3-pack. If you order a gift set, I'd be sure to inspect what kind of liner it comes with.

According to the Babies R Us website reviews, it seems that Boppy has realized the design flaw in their liners and has corrected it. So, if you purchased your liners recently and they roll up, I suggest you pop them right back into their packaging and exchange for the new and improved product!

If you bought your liners from BRU and don't have your receipt, here's a little trick: just add the liners to your online registry (create a registry if you don't have one) and manually enter that you received them. Customer service will accept returns on merchandise purchased from your registry, even if you don't have a receipt.

Happy diapering!
