Rated 3 out of 5 by Simon134 Plastic cover cracks/tears -- disappointing quality from JL!
Reviews are right -- plastic cover has cracked/torn in several places within a few months. It's still usable as we use the fabric cover (remember to buy three!) but it's no longer really sanitary/cleanable.
Disappointing as I expected -- possibly foolishly -- that anything from JL would be decent quality.
Seems a bit lazy that they haven't changed supplier or specification -- can't imagine it'd be hard to fix.
I say again, disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by samara Brilliant product, but...
This is an excellent product and we found the sloping sides a great feature. The cover also washes well.
Unfortunately, I have to agree with some of the other comments. We have two mats, and it is the JL one that has torn within 10 months.
I would buy another one as the design is great, and would recommend it, but do not expect it to last as long as some other mats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ligmot Would not choose anything else!
I know that this has had a lot of reviews about splitting, however I have worked in a large nursery for years and we renew these mats once a year (60+ children being changed every day, 364 days a year, I won't do the math) occasionally we get one that splits but it is rare! We have had these for years and years so when I had my daughter, the choice was obvious. I'm now on baby number two and I haven't had to replace it yet! I love that it has no nooks and crannies to clean after baby has pooped everywhere, and the anti-roll has been invaluable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NewMummy2012 nice design but poor durability
I love the shape of this mat, it helps to keep wriggly babies on the mat and prevents rolling over, however as other reviewers have noted the mat split at the edges after several months, leaving sharp corners and small holes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrightonClare So happy I bought a second one!
This product is fantastic. It is safe with the raised sides, thick and comfortable and so easy to wipe clean.
It is fantastic value for money. I actually bought a second one it is so good.
I didn't buy the cover and would recommend not to bother as this wipes clean with a baby wipe so well. The covers are expensive and just another thing to wash.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mabel32 Poor durability
We have had this for barely five months and it has already split in numerous places, including the corners and sides. This is very disappointing and I would have expected more from John Lewis, especially as it is more expensive than an average change mat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pixie20 Excellent product
I love how big this is and the fact that the baby can't roll off of it easily. Great for little ones who will one day be toddlers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mummy2one Great mat but splits at corners
I do love this changing mat, the wedge design is really fab and it's lovely and cushioned. The only problems we've found it that it is a good 5cms shorter then our change table - which of course could just be our table and we just use a rolled up towel at one end. And that after about 8 months we noticed a crack on one of the corners and shortly afterwards they appeared at each corner. They dont bother us and of course it still works fine but they are a little sharp that I wouldnt want to change a newborn on there in case they caught themselves.
Otherwise we're pleased with it.
