Choose the best nap mat for your toddler.

Our guide will show you important things to consider when purchasing your child’s nap mat.

The nap mats in the comparison chart below are all-in-one nap mats.

All-in-one nap mats include a padded underside, attached blanket and most come with a pillow or pillowcase.

Things to consider when buying a nap mat:

  1. Thickness. This is important because many daycares and preschools require a certain thickness.
  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. 

Daycares 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.
