A nice cushioned sleep mat for a small baby. It’s perfect for naps on the go. You no longer have to rush home to your crib for nap time, you can have baby take it on the go! You can purchase them online here zCush Velvet Baby Nap Mat (Pink)
This cute little mat can be used as a breast feeding pillow, and for those who aren’t comfortable holding a baby yet to have something more than baby to hold onto. A young child can hold the new baby with much more ease holding this padding as well.
Remember to use this safely though! When your child starts to roll over on his or her own, it’s time to stop using the zCush to eliminate the risk of suffocation.
This project also wouldn’t be too hard to make, although I personally might be a little skeptical about making it myself. Regardless of the lack of safety tests posted on their webpage, I would still prefer the mat to be made by someone who has been selling these for quite a while with awards from various parenting resources. That’s not to say you shouldn’t try if you feel capable of making a safe and secure variation to this cute little nap mat. I’m not very good at sewing, I don’t feel like I could competently create something that had enough support for a child while being able to breath should he or she roll without my knowledge, nor would I be sure it would be machine washable- which is always important for a small baby who causes lots of fun stains during the first few months of life.
