For a baby with reflux, parents are usually advised to keep their baby in an upright position to prevent burning acid from the stomach rising back into the oesophagus. The Baby Elevator is a simple but ingenious change mat designed to just that. The angled elevation of the mat keeps the baby's head above its stomach, circumventing acid reflux while nappy changing, it is also great for playtime with the baby on either back or tummy. RRP $59.95.
