How is the Chikiroo better than the alternatives?
Because public changing stations (when you can find them) are gross! If you use a thin pad/blanket you may be forced to use them on dangerous or dirty surfaces like a wet sink, bathroom floor or the trunk of your blistering hot car.
Your baby deserves better!
Here's why you should use the Chikiroo instead!
Chikiroo is a portable baby changing device you can use on the go (at the beach, zoo, theme park, restaurant, at a game, etc.) without needing to hunt down a changing table. Wear it and change your baby right where you stand. This newfound freedom means less diapering time and more playing time!
Safe and sanitary
Changing your baby in public using a thin pad/blanket on an unsanitary surface is just yucky! Ditch the dirty surfaces and elevate your baby changing experience with Chikiroo, which can be easily wiped down and sanitized. A 4-point safety harness keeps the squirmiest baby secured while being changed.
Fact: Babies need to be changed every two to three hours on average and sometimes even more frequently. With Chikiroo, you can change baby more often when you're out and about. This means less diaper rash equals happy baby!
No more awkward squatting
Dads face a unique challenge, many men's restrooms don’t have a changing station. They have to rely on uncomfortable means to change their baby like squatting on a dirty restroom floor. With Chikiroo, dads can finally stand up and rejoice in a less back-breaking way to diapering!
What people are saying about Chikiroo
Meet the creator of Chikiroo
Hey, parents and caregivers!
I’m Siska Hines, a designer by trade and a proud mommy of two little girls. Like most families, we’re always busy and on the go, especially to new restaurants. When our youngest was still a baby, my husband Matt and I would take turns changing her so we could eat and watch our toddler.
Back in September 2018, after having to precariously change my 6-month-old while holding her with one arm because the restaurant didn't have any changing station. (I refused to change her on the dirty restroom floor!) I started thinking to myself, “What if there’s a safer, easier way to change my baby anytime I want?”
The a-ha moment came to me while I was in the shower that evening: A wearable baby changing device. Relying on my years of creative experience as a designer, I stayed up until 3 A.M. to sketch the concept and was highly inspired by mama kangaroo cleaning her joey in the pouch. We researched and partnered with a few fantastic product development firms, juvenile products safety experts and manufacturers to bring my invention to life.
It has been a long journey bringing the Chikiroo (patent pending) to market and I genuinely hope that it will give your family the freedom to go on as many adventures as possible without the constant need to hunt down a public changing station.
Chikiroo Wearable Changing Station will be available for general purchase in Jan 2023, but you can pre-order now at special early bird price. Thank you so much for your support. Here’s to less diapering time and more playing time!
Still not sure about the Chikiroo?
Read what these skeptical first-timers think. (Spoilers: They were impressed!)
The bottomline is... babies don't deserve to be changed on dirty public surfaces. Period.
If babies could speak, we bet they will say, “Ew… don’t change me on that nasty surface!” And now there's a better way to change your baby in public! If you are expecting or just had a baby or know anyone who is, do the baby a favor and get the Chikiroo Wearable Changing Station. (Psst… It’s a great gift for the baby registry and shower too!)
