Choosing a nap mat for your toddler will include things like, size, thickness and material.

We will focus on:

  2. Size.  The overall size of the nap mat.
  3. Machine Washable.  For easy cleaning at home. 
  4. How it can be stored.
  5. If a pillow is included and if it is removable for easy washing.

Check with your child's daycare or preschool before purchasing a nap mat. 

Day cares may be required under state law to only allow for certain types of nap mats.  Or the daycare may have its own policies.  Once you know what their requirements are you will have an easier time choosing the best brand of nap mat for your child.
