* '''A sturdy table with a high weight limit.''' Be advised that some tables have as little as a 20 lb. limit! The stronger and sturdier your table is, the more use you'll get out of it. In some cases, you'll be able to use the table as regular household furniture long after your baby becomes potty trained.
* '''Easy assembly with clear directions.''' Read reviews and ask salespeople to get a better idea of what it takes to assemble.
* '''Plenty of storage space.''' As mentioned above, the combo changing tables offer the most space. You'll need it for the changing table accessories.
A decent changing table will probably cost you between $100 and $300. Larger pieces of furniture that convert into dressers will be more expensive $500 and up.
