Nap Time Struggles Solved – Nap Mat For Kids

Do you struggle to find a comfortable sleeping alternative for your children when you go away? What about getting them to lay down and relax when they are sick?
I have the answer! It is such a simple solution yet incredibly effective.

All in one sleeping mat

I know what you thinking… an all in one sleep mat, we’ve heard about them before. Yes you probably have but have you actually considered them as an option? I only ask because I had heard of them, seen them even and keep walking by because I didn’t see how they would make a difference. I will now be the first to admit, I was wrong!

No longer do you have to take excessive amounts of bedding for your kids when you visit family. No more packing a pillow, fitted sheet and a blanket for child care. The nap mat is a game changer!

Elektra Cloud9 Nap Mat

When I received an email from ElektraBub asking if I wanted to give one of the deluxe cotton nap mats a try, I thought I have nothing to lose, why not?
I figured because Haddie would be the one using it, she should pick the fabric and as I suspected she opted for the pink stars! No surprise there. What was a surprise however is how amazing the nap mat actually was.

What makes it so good

There are so many things I love about the nap mat that I know you will appreciate too.

Quality – Being designed for kids, it has been made with the highest of quality. The fabrics are hotel grade, durable, stain resistant and 100% machine washable. Being machine washable is one of my favourite features because with young children, spills happen. *Pillow can be removed as well.

Comfortable – The 120gsm 100% cotton is soft against skin and as it is padded it offers children a comfortable place to rest.

Convenience – What is more convenient than a bed, pillow and blanket all combined into one very cute little nap bed? The fact that it rolls up just adds to the convenience. No more struggling, no more fuss.

Easy to use – Your toddler or preschool child will even be able to carry it. With the convenient carry handle and buckles to hold the nap mat closed tightly, you don’t need to worry that it will be too big to carry or store. It is incredibly easy to roll, clip shut and carry – my 3 year old can do it!

Size – The deluxe cotton nap mat is larger in size which adds even more comfort for kids.
Mat: 125x52cm
Blanket: 105x72cm
Pillow: 25x52cm

What do I think

I would not hesitate in purchasing one of these for Audrey when she gets older and starts going to child care. I would recommend them to friends, family and other parents who want the convenience of one item offering a comfortable rest for their toddler.

    Brilliant idea! I’m past the stage of needing one but would love to enter to give to a friend!

  2. 26/10/2016 / 6:56 pm

    Fantastic idea, as limited space this is great for taking anywhere, so compact, Having first child this would make life so much easier when staying at the grandparents, knowing that it’s comfortable, cotton, pretty patterns, seeing my daughter sleep in that would help her have a good night sleep.

    Me, tiptoeing around the house, trying to do only ‘quiet’ things, as for the slightest sound wakes her up.

    Staying calm. It’s frustrating when they fight sleep, and not worth the hassle when they don’t nap so it feels like a lose lose situation at times.

    What a great idea, I’d love one our new little one

    Keeping the surrounds quiet and calm! There’s always activity around or others making a sound!

    Making it something they look forward too. Oh and finding that perfect time before the ‘over tired’ irritation kicks in.

    Calling out to try and stall bed time.
    “can i have a drink?” or my personal favourite “I thought you were going to give me more kisses”. How can I say no to kisses!!

    Getting my little one to sleep. I swear they are an owl that wants to stay up all night and bounce around like a kangaroo.

    Our biggest struggle at nap time is when my son doesn’t quite get enough sleep, he wakes up like a demon!

  18. Natalie Murnane

    My struggle is making enough noise. I always have plenty of noise around so the kids have all got used to it and sleep. Unfortunately if the washing stops or music finishes and it goes quiet they wake.

  19. Michelle
    10/11/2016 / 11:06 pm

    The many procrastination strategies my kids think up to avoid nap time is my biggest struggle.

  20. 12/11/2016 / 7:43 pm

    These are seriously awesome! I really love that they are made from cotton, and not an artificial fibre, so they breathe. Nice one! Have my fingers crossed for the giveaway.

    My biggest struggle is my little one still wants me to hold him for naps, I’m hoping he’ll grow out of it when he’s alittle older.

    My little guy naps really well,
    But needs a pillow to sleep,
    Pillow, sheet and comforter,
    We need a bag quite deep.
    Our preschool bag
    Is jam packed tight,
    with everything you see
    An all in one, easy to take,
    Would make life easier for me!

    My biggest challenge is for me to not get the giggles when the kids are both tucked up in their own rooms but yelling out jokes to each other from room to room.

    Our biggest struggles is getting the kids to sleep for long enough and the adults not sleeping for too long!!

    When they nap, I try to nap. My problem is turning off the switch inside my head so I can relax enough to sleep.

    Our biggest struggle at nap time at the moment is that by the time I get my son to sleep it always seems to be right on school pick up time. Every.single.time! Enough to make a grown woman cry!

    With my 14 month old no struggles as she sleeps through anything and in her cot perfectly however her older brother was another story he would never sleep unless in your arms so my struggle with him was getting things done around the house and him only cat napping for 20 mins!

    Deciding if I should do the washing, mop the floor, put the clothes away or sit down and read the latest on the All Mum Said blog.

    my daughter miss 5 struggles with thinking she’s going to miss out on something if we are awake and she isnt lol so we pretend to go to bed sometimes haha then we get back up after we peek in her room to see if she’s out like a light haha

  41. 29/11/2016 / 2:02 pm

    Biggest struggle at nap time is to not oversleep!

    I always find that trying to get my little one to have a nap can turn into a nightmare. He get so tired, but is very easily distracted and does not want to miss out on what his big brothers are doing.

  44. Tracy

    Getting my littlies to actually lie down. Once their head is down, sleep follows but they’re too worried that they’ll miss out on something exciting

  45. Jade Williams
    30/11/2016 / 12:44 pm

    The biggest struggle is trying to keep the 4 year old awake (she won’t sleep at night) when all she wants to do is sleep but the one year old just wants to party!

    My little chatterbox likes to practice talking every nap time.
    We’ll be in the lounge room and can hear her practicing, ‘Mum, Dadda, Jumper, Teddy.’

  47. Shannon Wotton
    30/11/2016 / 2:07 pm

    My biggest struggle is keeping to our naptime routine when we are out and about. It would be nice to be able to visit friends and family and not have to worry about the consequences of not having naps when we need to!

    As my son gets older he no longer thinks he needs a nap, however without one he is a terror come dinner time. Convincing him to sleep is the big struggle.

    Getting her out of the car without waking her up!

    In the Summertime, it’s convincing them that it’s bedtime with the “sun” still up!
