PRESS RELEASE: How Babywoods started

This is the founding story of our own company. I would like to share with you why I designed these wall cabinets. 

Who I am 

Hey hello, I am Melanie van Hagen, married entrepreneur and mother of Max, 4 years old and Fleur, 2 years old. I love fair sustainable products and I have set up my own sustainable children's furniture line. I prefer to spend my spare time with my family. You often find me on a sailing boat or in the woods. 

What I do

Since 2016 I am the owner of, I design smart wooden wall solutions for the children's room and sell the changing tables, desks and accessories through my webshop. 

Why a wall dresser

My company was founded during my first maternity week. In 2016 I gave birth to my son, because of my delivery I suffered from pelvic instability and was advised to walk as few stairs as possible. My husband, Joost, made the first model wall changing table as a maternity gift and hung it up on the toilet so that I didn't have to walk upstairs to change our son. 

He received plenty of compliments from maternity care and midwives. They also told me that there might be more parents interested in this handy product

Where do I do that

In the first period, we handmade the wall cupboards ourselves. The interest was enormous, we could no longer cope with the many requests and we started looking for a suitable supplier.

It was important in our search that the wall units contribute something to society and strive for a sustainable production process. Using sustainable materials. 

At the moment, several people with a professionally supervised daytime activities are happy to make our wall cabinets.

Wall dresser features

Space saving

The chest of drawers is foldable and therefore saves space. You can store your care items on the 2 wall shelves. Nice to efficiently furnish your nursery. 

As an agency 

After the diaper period of about 3 years, you can attach the changing table lower on the wall so that you can also slide a chair on it. You can then use the wall changing table as a children's desk. 


To guarantee quality, all our wall dresser models are ISO and NEN certified. The wall units comply with European safety legislation. 


InManual The wall chest of drawers describes exactly how you can hang the chest of drawers ergonomically. This way you have the changing table exactly at the right height. The changing table is therefore recommended by recognized pelvic floor physiotherapists.

Cost saving

You usually only use the changing table in your nursery for about three years. Then your child is ready for a toddler room with often a larger closet. You don't have to dispose of the wall chest of drawers like a drawer chest of drawers, you use it as a desk. Your teen can even study it during college time. You simply re-attach it at the desired height. You save the costs of purchasing different desks during the development of your child. So quite cheap and sustainable.


Last but not least. The changing tables are made locally and assembled by hand. The wood we use is certified. This is Dutch Design.
