We purchased this crib and changer combo since it seemed like such a great value, and we love the Graco Charleston crib and seperate changing table that we bought a couple years ago. Unfortunately, I was disappointed in the design of this product.
First of all, it was a lot more difficult to put together than the other Graco crib we have, and the instructions were a bit confusing. But when I finally got everything put together, it looks great and is very sturdy. There's just one thing...the surface of the changing table is way smaller than pretty much any other changing table out there. The dimensions of the changing table pad are 15 1/2"W x 27"L, where most standard changing table pads are 16"W x 32"L. This made it very difficult to find a pad/pad cover. The pad that comes with it is also flat and very thin-not super comfortable like the thick, contoured pad that I was able to put on my other Graco changing table.
I should have verified the dimentions before purchasing, but I assumed that it would be a 'standard' size and like my other Graco products. I also understand that the changing table is smaller so that it isn't wider than the crib, but if Graco is going to make a product that doesn't fit 'standard' dimensions, then they need to make coordinating pads and pad covers to fit it. I have looked all over for a smaller pad that is more comfortable or even just a cover for this smaller, thinner pad, but haven't found anything. So I am going to have to pick out some fabric and make a cover myself for the pad that came with it.
