Do you have a wiggly baby? Our little man has become more and more difficult to change the older he gets. Today I was changing his diaper and he almost completely flipped over on me when I raised his legs to wipe! I decided that I would quit fighting him and secure his changing pad! My changing pad came with the security belt....can't say I ever use it...ok-I admit-I cut it off :) I never walk away from him and if he was just secured to the pad what good does that do? It didn't come with any way to secure the pad to the dresser. Now we bought him a beautiful new bedroom set and I was really skeptical about making any marks to the top of his brand new dresser.
I had bought sticky Velcro and of course it never really sticks to what you want it to. It came apart within minutes and I knew that wasn't going to work. So I attached two straps to the backside of the changing pad with my sewing machine.
I used a leftover scrap of pleather...since I knew that stuff is strong! I then attached the straps to the backside of the dresser with two short screws. Yes I had to make holes but I didn't mind since they were on the backside no one will see.
