John Lewis Baby Wedge Changing Mat, Cream
Great while it lasts...
We are on our second of these mats (baby has just turned eight months old). Although they are great while they last and he seems very comfortable on them, the first one split after four months and the second after about three months. He's now too tall for them so we will be looking elsewhere, hopefully for one that doesn't split so readily!

Great product, have been using for 5 months now and still as good as new! Great price too. Would definitely recommend. 5 stars.

I was really pleased with this product initially... after just 5 months the mat has split in several places leaving sharp edges meaning it is now unusable. I would have expected this to have lasted a lot longer!

very disappointed with the quality, after a couple of months the plastic cover split open.... as a design works perfectly just won't last!!!!

Good shape but poor durability
Like other reviewers, I was really pleased with the shape, the high sides made me feel more secure, even if they don't stop a baby rolling off. What I am disappointed with though, is the durability. This lasted until our baby was 11 months before tears at the corners and in the centre made it unusable. It's not all that expensive at £15 but now feels not worth the money - it's inconvenient to buy another one and a waste of raw materials and manufacturing effort for a product which won't even see you through to having one child out of nappies - and I had hoped to use it for two.

I agree with the last review. In a short time, it starts to tear at the corners. I was disappointed as I liked the shape and design but now that I need a new changing mat, I won't be buying this one again.

Starts off well but falls apart
A lot of these reviews are positive because the mat has not been in use that long.
When we first started using this it seemed great too, nice shaped design, and baby does not roll off. However, within a couple of months, it began to tear. I was surprised at how quickly the tears appeared and it has certainly been the worst mat we have bought for that (they all tear eventually).
Not a good buy and I won't be buying another one.

Excellent good value product
I bought this to use for my grandaughter when she comes to visit us. We used it on the top of a chest of drawers at first and it fitted perfectly. She is now 7 months and it is still very useful especially as she has started to roll. We put it on the floor to keep her under control whilst changing nappies ! The mat is easy to clean, well padded, a good size and fits in with any colour scheme but most of all very reasonably priced.
