Patemm Pad - Grace Welch

Naoki Nitta

Grace Welch is the mom-inventor behind the Patemm Pad - the world’s only ROUND diaper changing pad. After the birth of her second child, Grace felt there had to a better diaper changing pad. Grace found standard rectangular diaper changing pads to be frustrating and often struggled to position her wiggly baby on the pad. So Grace set out to find a better way!

In July 2004 the round “Patemm Pad” was born - and was named after her children, Patrick and Emma.

The company reports sales of over $1 million in 2006. For more information on Grace Welch and Patemm, visit
