Patemm – Covering more ground during nappy changes



Got a wriggler? Tried to change a nappy in a public parent’s room to have your bub migrate off your change mat and across the bench while you have a panic about when the surface was last cleaned?

I know I had enough trouble keeping my boys still on the change table at home, let alone my flimsy, small change mat when we were out and about. And while I was frantically juggling the nappy bag, nappies and uncooperative packs of travel wipes with their wriggling, it did cross my mind that there had to be a better way.

The Patemm Pad is a terrific alternative to standard nappy wallets, changing mats and even nappy bags. The large, round design takes care of wrigglers and you can place your baby in any direction. The handy pockets are roomy enough for nappies, wipes and even a spare change of clothes. The clever design means that everything you need for a nappy change on the go is right at hand.

The Patemm Pad folds into a compact carrier. The four handles on the outside are designed so that you can open and close it one-handed (that shows it was designed by a clever mum!). The Pads are made of eco-friendly, PVC-free laminated cotton and come in a great range of patterns, from the stylish black and white New York City Momma pattern to the funky, psychedelic San Francisco Momma.

Patemm Pads range from US$55-$70. Although Patemm currently do not ship outside the US, this is likely to change very soon. In the meantime, use a freight forwarder.
