Have you seen these fantastic nap mats from Elektra Bub & Tots? They’re super for nap time, and we absolutely love ours! We were sent one for the purposes of this review.
The mats are designed very cleverly like a sleeping bag, a quilt, a mat and a pillow all in one. Elektra Bub & Tots Day Care Nap Mat arrived all rolled up, and I thought, hmmm, we’ll see how easy it is to get it back like that. You know those sleeping bags that come in a tiny little pouch and you have to wrestle and have at least three of you with octo-arms to try and get it back in? Well, this is not like that. It has a really simple wrap, roll and clip procedure and the mat goes back in this roll, with a carry handle, very simply and easily.
I really like the fabric – it’s soft, and dinosaurs are always a winner, so it’s pretty unisex, though there is a pink option if you have a little one whose favourite colour is pink. The outer is made of polyester and the inner is cotton. The whole thing is really easy to wash and dry, though I took out the pillow to wash it before using it. I wanted it to smell like ‘our’ stuff, so that Noah would feel more at home sleeping on it.
It’s got a label on so you can put your name on it if you need to use it at day care. At nursery the boys go to, the napping children sleep in a massive cosy corner filled with pillows, or in those little dog basket things, so we don’t need to supply our own. I think, however, this will be a fantastic thing to take on our next road trip, because it’s so easy to pack and makes a brilliant little floor bed.
Now, you’ll have to excuse the poor quality, grainy photos here. Our evening routine involves Noah sleeping on the couch next to us before we put him in his cot when we go to bed, so it’s a bit dark in these photos!
Our sofa is leather, which can feel a bit chilly to the touch, so this mat has made all the difference in letting Noah have a quality nap before -ahem- bed.
Noah will also try and lie down if he’s tired, so as to try and avoid another situation like this – we shake out this nap mat on the floor and he finds it for a little sleep. It’s comfy enough to lie on when it is on the floor, and James enjoys snuggling up in it while we watch a movie together.
Thanks to Elektra Bub & Tot I have one of these brilliant nap mats to give away. Just click below to enter.
