Before trying the Lilikim Sofalange changing mat, I thought to myself that one changing mat wouldn’t be much different to another. I’d been used to using the traditional flat type of changing mats, but was offered the chance to try this new Lilikim Sofalange changing mat with baby N, and due to it’s wedged shape I thought it may be worth a try to help with her reflux. Since her newborn days, N had not liked being laid down totally flat because she had some reflux, so the mat was ideal for this reason but actually I think it would be great for all babies whether they have reflux or not.
We’ve been using this mat since baby N was around 6 weeks old, and are still using it now that she’s 5 and a half months old. As you can see, the mat is thicker than a traditional changing mat, and has a wedged shape meaning it’s raised at the head end.
