Hulabye Happy Changer Review

I recently had the opportunity to review the Hulabye Happy Changer. And boy did I wish I had heard about this much sooner! So what exactly is a Hulabye Happy Changer?

The Happy Changer is a soft fabric vest that secures to your changing pad. A comfortable easy on and off vest that prevents your child from rolling or moving around on the changing table, thus keeping them safe and both Mom and baby happy!

About Hulabye
The Happy Changer was of course invented by a Mom. When Erin Kelly welcomed her second daughter into the world she couldn't wait to experience all the babyhood "firsts". However she was not looking forward to a mobile baby at changing time.

Once changing became a wrestling match Erin searched for something that would hold her daughter still long enough to change her diaper. Finding no such product on the market, Erin drew up a sketch, got out the sewing machine and got to work.  The original Happy Changer was born and did exactly as intended, keep her daughter from rolling over and most of the time taking away the urge to roll.

That first prototype survived with Erin's daughter and then for two more families. So with her second daughter off to preschool in 2011, Erin decided to make the Happy Changer available to all families and formed Hulabye, LLC. A company dedicated to making parenting as joyful and hassle-free as possible.

Hulabye Happy Changer Review
As I stated above I really wished I had heard about this sooner. Little Brother was such a wiggle worm on the changing table that we started changing him on the floor at about 9 months old or so. The Happy Changer would have helped so much and extended our changing table usage.

We currently use our Boppy as a pillow for Little Brother when we change him. At 19 months it is still hard to always keep him in one place long enough to change his diaper. So although this is really meant for the changing table. I used ours over the Boppy with the same great results! The sizing is meant for a changing pad so the velcro wasn't long enough to reach all the way around the Boppy. So I just tacked on the Happy Changer to the back of the Boppy.

Little Brother didn't mind putting putting on the Happy Changer at all. It was easy to put on and take off. Simply slip babies arms in the vest like holes and velcro. Done. Super sticky nice large velcro to guarantee a safe and secure baby!

The Happy Changer comes in 5 different flannel prints ($36), 3 minky solids ($42) or 3 minky prints ($44). All beautiful fabrics that will match with any nursery design. We reviewed the Brown/White flannel Happy Changer which matched Little Brother's room perfectly! The Happy Changer is made in the USA and is both machine washable and dryable which of course it super important!

This would make the perfect baby shower gift or for any new mom (or dad) expecting! Take away some of the new baby stress and make changing diapers a breeze!
