Default Changing table safety

Does anyone else wish they had a removable rail for their changing table? Mine has a "rail", but it isn't even as high as the changing table pad! I cut the straps off the pad because they hung down in front of the drawers and were annyoing. Am I the only one who wishes there was a little more security there?

We have a changing table with snaps and the "pad" is contoured so that DS had a hard time rolling over even if he wasn't strapped in (although we always did!) and now that he's older we just change him on the floor

We don't have a changing table. Had one for my first and never used it. I just change in the crib with the rail down. Everthing is in reach.

You would normally be against the table when your baby is on it, so its not likely he'd roll off. Just don't leave him alone when on there & you won't have any problems.
