Cheap but you get what you paid for,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Summer Infant Contoured Changing Pad (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Baby Product)
We bought this particular changing pad to replace a Simmons Kids Contour Dressing Table Pad with Non-Skid Bottom one we had been using for three months. I chose this changing pad over the Simmons pad this time because it was cheaper. However, I just received this item two days ago, and on the first day it got a hole in it from my wedding ring. Only last week did the Simmons one develop a hole, and I was wearing my wedding ring the entire time we used it. The plastic on the Summer Infant changing pad seems to be thinner and more fragile than the Simmons changing pad. My son likes to kick, and even his toenails have cut into the plastic on the changing pad which did not occur on the Simmons changing pad. If you do get this changing pad, I recommend using a cover to prevent tears since it is so fragile. I keep my own fingernails short, and even once just my short fingernail poked a small hole. It's a bit exasperating the amount of holes this changing pad has managed to accumulate in just two days. I have emailed Summer Infant's customer service department, and I will update this review based on how they handle my email.

Have you heard back from them? What did they say about the holes?

why wouldn't you use a cover on this changing pad?! I've had mine for 18 months and it's in perfect condition despite having a very active little boy. Of course I've always had a cover on it. A cover makes it easy to keep clean and softer for your little one.

I never heard back from them, and I didn't bother pursuing it any further considering how cheap it was. As for why I wasn't using a cover, my son was breastfed which meant he always had very runny diapers which always got everywhere. It was just easier to not use a cover, and when the poo got out of the diaper I could just take a disinfecting wipe to the changing pad to clean off the pad as opposed to constantly washing the changing pad covers. Of course once his stools got more solid I began using a cover.
