Baby changing products

If you list products on our store, you must comply with all federal, state, and local laws and our policies applicable to those products and product listings, including this policy.

Baby changing products covered by this policy

Baby changing products covered by this policy include changing tables, changing table accessories, add-on changing units, and contoured changing pads. This policy covers baby changing products sold for domestic use for children up to a weight of 30 lb. Flat, non-contoured changing mats that are typically included with a diaper bag, for example, are not covered under this definition, and, therefore, are not subject to this policy.

Changing tables

A changing table is an elevated freestanding structure, generally designed to support and retain a child with a body weight of up to 30 lb (13.61 kg) in a horizontal position for the purpose of allowing a caregiver to change the child’s diaper. Changing tables may convert from or to other items of furniture, such as a dresser, desk, hutch, bookshelf, play yard, or other furniture, and may provide storage for diapers and diaper products. Changing tables that are used in public facilities, such as public restrooms, are not covered by this policy.

Changing table accessories

A changing table accessory attaches to a crib or play yard and is designed to convert the product into a changing table, typically a rigid frame with soft fabric, mesh side or bottom surface, or both.

Add-on changing units

An add-on changing unit is a rigid addition to an item of furniture, or a separate product used with an item of furniture, that provides barriers to prevent the infant from rolling off the product during a diaper change.

Contoured changing pads

A contoured changing pad is designed for use on an elevated surface that incorporates barriers to prevent a child from rolling off the changing surface.
