    Default New changing mat?

    Oh my goodness!

    Just had a quick look on Amazon and Ebay for a new change mat and the cheapest decentish one i could find was £10.99! I paid about £8, probably just about 2 years ago and I thought that was alot!

    Any suggestions where else I might find one for a more reasonable price? I know it gets alot of use, but the one I had before this one, I'd had for years and it wasn't expensive!

    My only other thought was just to get a length of oil cloth and make a mat from that, as I usually use it on carpet! That won't be cheap, but will it work? Or will it get stained?

    Thanks x

    I always look on e-bay and usually get one for £3 and it lasts a couple of years.
