Our Top Changing Table Dresser Picks

Our littlest ones need a lot of big stuff to survive those first couple of years, and having furniture that serves dual purposes makes the most of your nursery's square footage. Enter storage-savvy dressers that double as changing tables. Not only do they house baby clothing, but they also have enough room to stow all your diaper-changing essentials.

In general, there are two categories of changing dressers: ones with removable changing stations and ones without. The changing dressers with removable changing stations will grow with your kid since you'll be able to use the piece as a regular dresser once your diaper days are through. If going this route, be sure to look for high-quality craftsmanship that will stand the test of time (and toddlers and teenagers).

If you're looking to keep the cost down, look for changing dressers that require assembly. You may have to spend a little time with an instruction manual and screwdriver, but you'll keep more $$$ in your wallet.

Keep scrolling for changing dressers at every price point, every style and every configuration.
