When I was about 5 months pregnant with my little girl, my family and I took a trip to Maryland to visit some friends who just had a baby. Upon meeting their new baby, I couldn’t help but notice the very cool recliner that the baby was sleeping in. What was this neat contraption, I asked? I had never seen one of these before! When my boys were little, I would put them down on their bouncy seats or car seat. But this was plush, soft, supportive, and beautiful.
I learned it was a Nap Nanny, a product designed to comfort babies and improve infant sleep. The Nap Nanny takes the best attributes from all of those other products you can put your baby in — like the shape and contour of an infant carrier, the softness of your favorite baby blanket, the recline of a bouncy seat, and the firmness and stability of a mattress — and combines them into one great product.
I have been using the Nap Nanny with my daughter now for two weeks, and she prefers laying and sleeping in the Nap Nanny over all the other products I used with my sons (the swing, bouncy, car seat, etc) I think she finds it extremely comfortable. She (so far!) is the best sleeper of my three children, and while I’m sure the Nap Nanny isn’t the only reason she is a great sleeper, I’m sure using it is helping. She is doing 4-5 hour stretches at night and is a great sleeper during the day, too. I anticipate her continuing to use the Nap Nanny throughout her first year (and possibly beyond!) to help her relax and sleep well.
The Nap Nanny is made with an extremely soft minky dot fabric and has a waterproof liner to protect the foam core. You can easily remove the minky cover to wash it with the zipper closure. The Nap Nanny has a safety harness so you can buckle your baby in and know they can’t roll out or slip out of it. It comes in a number of different colors and designs to fit your personality or nursery style. You can also purchase a travel bag for it if you would like to take it on the go with you.
This is a great product for any mom seeking a safe and comfortable sleep solution for their baby.
I was provided with a sample of the Nap Nanny to review with my daughter. As always, all opinions expressed in this review are my own.
