My Favorite Things: Patemm Pads

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Grace Welch, the mom inventor of the Patemm Pad.  This woman is a dynamo, and so is her product!  A little background for those of you who aren’t familiar with the product…The Patemm Pad is a patented, award-winning, parent and third party laboratory tested, eco-friendly diaper changing system that is PROUDLY MADE IN THE USA!  The pads are laminated, CPSIA-certified and are both wipe down to clean and machine-washable.

What I love about the pad is the circular design and its versatility.  We all know and love a baby who squirms while they’re having their diaper changed.  On the Patemm Pad your baby can be in any direction and still protected from the floor below.  The Patemm Pad also has inside pockets for wipes, diapers, change of clothes, etc., and is a great option for the times when you don’t want to bring the whole diaper bag.

I like using the Patemm Pad as a handy, clean, soft spot for playtime in the house, at the park, or at the playground.  Professionally, I use the pad for sorting activities with young children by placing the child in the middle of the pad and bowls around the outside for each different color, shape, or animal.  I often recommend that parents set up indoor obstacle courses for their children on rainy and cold days.  The Patemm Pad is a great starting or ending point, and a great spot for doing an activity like balancing on one foot, as part of the course.  And a bonus tip…..photographs taken on the Patemm Pad are adorable!

Patemm Pads are available on their website: and select retailers across the USA and abroad. and Giggle stores nationwide carry Patemm Pad exclusives.  If you “Like” Patemm Pad on Facebook (, you’ll have access to great promos, giveaways, FB exclusives, news, $25.00 samples sales, etc.
