Craving a perfect Nap? You need The Nap Nanny

Photo Credit: Nap Nanny 2009

As any momma knows many babies can't or just won't sleep lying flat at some time in their infancy – reflux, colic, stuffy nose, gas, ear infections are all things that keep your little one from loosing shut eye and you too. Either that or they simply would rather snooze in a car seat, swing or be in a loved ones arms.

Four years in the making leave it to a sleep-deprived mompreneur (Sportscaster too) Leslie Gudel to develop her comfy, handy (and oh so stylish) patented revolutionary Nap Nanny sleep seat which launched in 2008. Leslie’s inspiration? To improve the quality of infant sleep by starting an environmentally-friendly company (CEO of Baby Matters, L.L.C) devoted to the health and comfort of families with small children. The Nap Nanny is applauded by parents (Cupcake Mag) and health care professionals nationwide.

After many little ones tested out the product we couldn’t wait to share just why we fell in love:

o Portable, lightweight, only 3lb! The Nap Nanny mimics the contours of a car seat (which all babies love) and has a safety harness that holds the child securely in place. It was easily carried from room-to-room.

o The Nap Nanny sits at a 30 degree angle at the top and is curved at the foot to form an upright cradle, which prevents sliding and helps with reflux, earache and stuffiness – all the things little babes seem to encounter the first few months of life when sleep is most important to moms and dads.

o The cover, available in 4 solid colors (Pink,Blue, Sage and Camel) is washable (always a plus) and “baby blanket soft”. The 4 new designer patterns are perfectly chic for modern mommas and was recently introduced just this September at the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas. We love the hip new patterns; Confetti Pink, Confetti Blue, Safari Giraffe and Yankee doodle. The Nap Nanny comes with one cover but other designs can be purchased separately and very mom friendly to change.

o Super high density foam made us want to nap on it – so super soft you may be surprised by how much sleep you will be getting!

o Got Twins? Our moms with multiplies found it a breeze when bottle feeding.

o A waterproof liner protects the sturdy Nap Nanny for greater longevity, which saves money for use one child after the next!

One fan is Tina Trumbo, of Alexandria, VA, who wrote, “Our daughter Anna has severe reflux. The first night we used [The Nap Nanny®] she slept all night [and] we were in shock. Thank you so much for drastically improving the quality of our little girl's life, and ours!”

Rushing to get it? We know! It can be purchased online at The Nap Nanny for $129.99 (plus shipping) and is available on or in specialty retailers nationwide.

Keep in mind for safety reasons The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends nothing be placed in the crib other than the baby. The Nap Nanny is for floor use only. The Nappy Nanny is also designed for infants over 8 lbs., but stayed tuned for a “preemie version” that will be available soon.

Disclaimer: The Nap Nanny was Cupcake Mag tested and baby approved. We do not get paid to review this product, just like all the products we feature. This is just our opinion and review of the brilliant Nap Nanny.


  1. I could seriously use of these. I have never heard of the product! I am really missing out. Sounds great.

  2. This is so much better than a bouncy chair because it is so modern looking and doesn't look like it is a big space hog! The print in the blue is SO cute and would match my little ones room perfect. Need to get one asap!!!!! Thanks Cupcake!

  3. I ordered one and can't wait to get it. Thanks Cupcake Mag for sharing this great product. I am sure my new little one will LOVE it!

  4. TOTALLY need to get this!!!!!

  5. Thanks so much for posting this. I actually own one and have been using it for over 9 months now and LOVE it! My son had colic and it was great for him and we both got sleep! I agree with the other poster it is very modern looking with a bunch of fashion print covers available (I just ordered one on line at is so easy to just take on the go to Grandmas and to our friends houses. I now feed my son in it and he also likes to lounge in it to drink his bottles. This is definitely money well spent... and I have recommended it to everyone that I know who has a baby or is expecting!

  6. There is something strange about a baby sleeping on the floor. I purchased one without knowing about this fact. Why can't an infant who can't roll over yet sleep in the nanny in a lowered crib or playyard???

  7. Earning money online never been this easy and transparent. You would find great tips on how to make that dream amount every month. So go ahead and click here for more details and open floodgates to your online income. All the best.

  8. Don't buy these.

  9. This undated image provided by the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) shows a Nap Nanny baby recliner. Four national retailers agreed to recall more than 150,000 Nap Nanny baby recliners after at least five infant deaths and dozens of reports of children nearly falling out of the recliners, the CPSC said Thursday. The recall covers Nap Nanny Generations One and Two, and the Chill model infant recliners. All were sold between 2009 and 2012. The Nap Nanny was designed to mimic the curves of a baby car seat, elevating an infant slightly to help reduce reflux, gas, stuffiness or other problems. (AP Photo/CPSC)
