Hulabye Happy Changer Review & Giveaway

Anyone that has a baby knows how much of a struggle it can be to change their diaper. It's not so much a struggle for newborns, but once they hit 4-6 months, it's war since they have discovered they can move and no longer want to be stopped to get their diaper changed anymore. 

Enter Hulabye Happy Changer!

From their website:

"Changing time became a wrestling match that, more often than not, resulted in an ill-applied diaper, a frustrated mom, an unhappy baby and a changing table in need of a hazmat cleanup. After searching stores and the Internet, Erin was unable to find a single device that could hold her wiggly infant still long enough to change her diaper.
Knowing exactly what she was looking for, Erin sketched a pattern on her daughter’s craft table paper, got out the sewing machine and got to work. She was beyond happy to discover that the original Happy Changer™ not only kept her daughter from rolling over on the changing pad, it seemed to take away the urge to roll at all (most of the time!)
That very first prototype survived many months with Erin’s daughter and went on to serve tours of diaper duty with two other families. With her second daughter finally off to preschool in 2011, Erin decided to make the Happy Changer™ available to the diapering masses, forming Hulabye, LLC, a company dedicated to making parenting as joyful and hassle-free as possible."
For my review, I received a flannel print Hulabye Happy Changer in the blue/green/brown polka dot pattern. 

I unfortunately don't have any photos of Mason using the Hulabye Happy Changer because I never got a chance before our camera broke. :-( But it has had a permanent spot on our changing table pad ever since it arrived back in February and has seen a TON of use in that short amount of time!
The Happy Changer truly does make changing time easier! I was skeptical of how well it would work at first. But it is so easy! The Happy Changer simply attaches to the changing pad cover. Your wrap it around the pad and it velcros underneath and stays put very tightly.

Next, you lay your baby down on the changing pad like normal, and put one of their arms through each side of the vest, in the specific arm holes.

There are two velcro spots, an inner and then a wider, tighter one. First your velcros the inner closure, and then the outer closure to gentrly restrain your little wiggler!

Voila! After securing the Hulabye Happy Changer, you can change your baby quickly but efficiently without the struggle, the poorly secured diaper, the screaming baby, and no disarray. 
I love the overall concept of the Hulabye Happy Changer, and it truly does work. At first, I thought Mason might scream and fuss when he figured out he couldn't crawl away from me anymore, but he is fine and so distracted by the Hulabye that he doesn't even notice I am changing him! 
The Hulabye's come in a variety of fabrics and prints, and are soft, cuddly, and cozy, so baby isn't uncomfortable. There are no sizes with the Hulabye Happy Changer; One size fits all! It's machine washable for those accidents and nasty stains, or the occasional leaky diarrhea. The changer stays put right on the changing table at all times, so there is no need to fool around with digging it out and attaching it to the changing pad every single time you need to change a diaper. It's so convenient, easy to use, and a definite must have for every mom out there! 
Hulabye Happy Changer comes highly recommended from this mama!
