Why You Need A Vegan Leather Changing Mat

Why You Need A Vegan Leather Changing Mat

There is something very important that many diaper bags are missing. What is it you ask? A baby changing mat! Your Yuuma diaper bag is not complete without one. Our vegan leather changing mat is not only soft and smooth to the touch but durable and easily cleaned. Change your baby anywhere and everywhere in luxury.

The Perks of A Changing Mat

Once you have a vegan leather changing mat you will be shocked how you ever went without one. The Yuuma changing mat can fold and roll up to fit anywhere. Match it with your Yuuma diaper bag and vegan leather baby bib to have the complete matching set. If you’re still on the fence about purchasing one here are some of our top reasons why they are a must-have:

Baby’s Comfort

If your baby is comfortable during the diaper changing process, it can make the experience a lot easier and smoother. Even on a hot day, their skin will not stick to the mat. Vegan leather is soft on their skin, so naked or not, they will love it. It is also nicer to lay your baby down on something when you know exactly where it’s been.


Freedom To Change Diapers Anywhere

One of my favorite things about having a diaper bag is how I have the freedom to change my baby’s diaper anywhere. When we’re at the park I lay the changing mat down on the grass. At restaurants, I protect their skin from that dingy bathroom changing stations. Anywhere and everywhere, it helps make the process smoother and more comfortable for everyone.

Spill-Proof & Easy Cleaning

Protect your car, couch, or carpet from any sticky situations with a changing mat. It just keeps things cleaner and more sanitary compared to changing diapers on any old surface. With Yuuma’s vegan leather changing mat you can simply wipe it down after using it, roll it or fold it back up and it is good to go for next time.

The Perks of Vegan Leather

Now that we’ve covered the reasons why you need a baby changing mat, we can get into the perks of a changing mat that is made from vegan leather. At Yuuma we make all of our products with high-quality vegan faux leather for many reasons. Some of these reasons include:


More than a billion cows, pigs, goats, sheep, alligators, ostriches, kangaroos, and even dogs and cats are cruelly slaughtered for their skins every year. With a vegan leather product, you are not supporting this cruel industry but are still receiving the look and feel people love so much about leather.


One of the main perks of using vegan leather products as a parent is their durability. Faux leather does not mean you are missing out on quality. This is why we chose vegan leather for our diaper bags, baby bibs, and changing mats. With kids, anything can happen. Things are split, sprayed, dragged, and need to last.


Since vegan leather is made from plastics, it is already water resistant! This is a big perk for durability. It can get splashed with coffee, be dropped in a puddle, or take a spray from a newborn like a champion. It can also be left in the sun and withstand the elements - so feel free to take the bag to the beach, or wherever life takes you.


The process of making vegan leather is a lot easier than real leather due to not having to source animal skin and the extensive manufacturing process. This makes vegan leather much more affordable and more easily obtainable for many. Not to mention it is becoming the preferred material in fashion. Win-win.

Minimal Maintenance

If you are washing and wiping the mat down with heavier products often just make sure to keep it moisturized. This is simple, just use a dime-sized amount of baby oil and work it into the leather. This keeps cleaning products from drying the vegan leather out, avoiding cracks. With minimal maintenance, your vegan leather items can last you years and years.
