Patemm® Pad Review & Giveaway



Diaper changing while out and about has always been a pain in the butt for me. No matter what I did I either forgot a changing pad, wipes, and on the rare occasion, diapers. Not only am I forgetful but it seems like anywhere I am likely to be doesn't have anywhere to change a baby except for the floor (think hippie coffee shops), or the backseat of my car (which if you've done it you know it's super difficult). I needed to find some kind of solution. I wanted something organic, easy to transport, and of course nice looking. I found Patemm® Pads and they fit all of my requirements and more.

Patemm® Inc. was created by a mother, Grace. Grace graduated from NYU and spent 6 years doing public relations, marketing, and branding for a San Francisco design firm. After she had babies she wanted to return to the workforce, but she wanted it to be on her own terms, she figured the best way to do that would be by starting a business. Combining her frustrations with the small rectangular changing pads on the market and being overwhelmed by diaper bags full of stuff, she came up with the Patemm® Pad, a round changing pad that can hold your diaper changing essentials, folds up for easy transport, and is nice to look at! The Patemm® Pad was founded in San Francisco in 2004. The name Patemm® is a combination of Grace's first two children's names: Patrick and Emma.


For review I received the 100% organic cotton Pattem® Pad in the gorgeous Buhayin pattern. The organic Patemm® Pads are GOTS (Global organic textile standards) certified, and two of the colors (avocado and hibiscus) are SKAL Certified 100% Organic eco-friendly and sustainable process for dyeing and finishing. 

This changing pad is awesome! It's a lot easier to carry than a big diaper bag when I am out and about with Elijah in my Ergo. We cloth diaper and I have found that I can easily fit 2-3 cloth diapers, diaper cream, a few cloth wipes, and a small spray bottle of wipes solution in the pockets of this pad. Not only have I used it for diaper changes but also for a small designated play area when at a doctors office or just out. It's super soft and not too thin like some other changing pads, this one is nice and comfortable!

Patemm® Pads also come in a non-organic, laminated cotton. The laminated cotton pads are PVC, lead, phthalate, latex, BPA, and formaldehyde FREE, so no worries about nasty chemicals coming in contact with your baby.
Another great thing? These pads are made in San Francisco!

Buy it: Visit the Patemm® Pad website and get one of these awesome round changing pads!

Win it: Patemm® Pads has graciously offered one of our readers their very own Patemm® Pad!

I love the Buhayin pattern! These are really neat. The circular design in genius. I can never keep my daughter on the narrow rectangular pad we have now.
