Snoofy Bee - Clean Hands Changing Pad for Home and Travel

by: Amanda Williams, August 31 2015

Snoofy Bee - Clean Hands Changing Pad for Home and Travel - kids travel tips, kids activities tips
I saw a crowdfunding round-up that featured Snoofy Bee's Clean Hands Changing Pad and had just gotten done wrestling my eight-month-old on the floor to try and complete a diaper change. He does this alligator "death roll" and when there is a mess in the diaper, it leads to catastrophe. The Kickstarter project was a HUGE success--consumers can expect to be able to get their hands on one around Mid-November 2015. There are a few different pattern options available and they are PVC free.
