Mothercare lulworth classic changing unit in white review

Quick overview

From a flat-pack nightmare to a beautiful piece of furniture, that just so happens to be a baby changing unit!

The Lulworth Changing Unit from Mothercare is practical, looks elegant and feels extremely solid. I just wish the instructions weren’t so vague!

Pros and Cons

  • 3 deep drawers for all your baby changing necessities
  • Feels solid for a piece of flat-pack furniture
  • Delivered straight to the room of your choice, if bought online

  • Doesn’t come with baby changing mat

Why buy the product?

This was actually a spur of the moment buy. We were in Mothercare to test drive a pram and spotted the Lulworth Changing Unit as we walked through the store.

We were immediately taken by how nice it looked. The oak wood effect top contrasts beautifully with the white finish to the rest of the unit. In the store, it was set up with a baby changing mat, so we could picture how practical it could be. When our baby gets older and no longer needs the changing unit, it could serve as a nice chest of drawers.

The unit feels really study, which really made us feel reassured. I didn’t realise that it would come as a flat-pack.

The unit has 3 deep drawers, with plenty of space to keep clothes, nappies and baby changing necessities. The top of the unit comes with a divider to make changing a little more organised.


Delivery took about a week; the courier company kept us up to date via email and text. Due to the weight of the unit, the delivery man brought it straight into the house and into the nursery. This was really useful, as we had asked our parents to wait in for the delivery while we were at work.

What comes in the box

The Lulworth Changing Unit comes in two boxes, unfortunately, nothing is pre-made everything needs to be put together. It comes with an Allen key, but you’ll need a Phillips head screwdriver and a hammer… don’t be tempted to use the hammer in frustration!

Putting it all together

I’ll never get the 4 hours it took me to put the Lulworth Changing Unit together back! The instruction manual isn’t helpful at all, and it’s quite difficult to follow, as some pieces are very similar with only subtle differences separating them.

As a result, I ended up having to undo parts and switch pieces around, which added to my frustration! I kept having to go on the Mothercare website to see actual photos of the product that I could use as a guide instead. If Mothercare are reading this review, I’d ask them to use real images in their step by step instructions rather than line drawings.

Try not to let this put you off, as once I finally put it together, it looks stunning!

The overwhelming moment when I unpacked all the pieces…

Finally, after a few takes, I finished the main section and started on the drawers.

Final verdict

We really love the Mothercare Lulworth Changing Unit; it looks beautiful, is practical (although we haven’t used it yet, as our baby is due in March).

It isn’t the cheapest baby changing unit on the market, but we feel it’s value for money. If someone else could have built it for me, I would love it even more!
