    Oh wow! Thanks everyone for your suggestions and replies.

    After reading through all of this I'm definitely leaning towards a dresser. It's not as though we have a huge (future) nursery, but it's certainly not tiny and it already has built in robes so apart from a bassinet/cot and maybe a rocker there probably won't be any other furniture in there. I like the idea of using the dresser as an ongoing piece of furniture though, and I like the idea that the wipes etc can be stored at the other end of the dresser so I can just reach over baby to grab what I need.

    It's so overwhelming as a first timer so it's really nice to get some honest opinions! Thanks everyone

    Oh, I just wanted to add that I have a friend who has a long vanity counter in her bathroom and she changes the baby there. It is so convenient, since the sink is right there- she can wet cloth wipes under the tap. And of course, she can easily wash her hands at the end and store all of the diapering gear in the vanity. She keeps the diaper pail in there, too. Our bathroom is too small to swing a cat in, so this wasn't an option for us. But I thought I would bring it up b.c it seems that not all big bathroom owning folks think of this.

    Thanks Taz. I really thought there would me more people in support of a change table, so it's good to know that something as simple as the bathroom vanity, a bed or even the floor is just as good. I'm planning on going to some furniture shops on the weekend and standing next to some dressers to practice my baby changing reach and to see what height DH and I find comfortable!

    We wanted to go the Dresser route so we wouldn't have to buy new furniture when Azula gets bigger, but ended up buying a crib & change table set with drawers from my sister in law (they needed the money). It was challenging looking for a dresser tall enough anyway - although you can always buy one and add some taller feet to the bottom to raise it up a little.
