Can't Get Your Kid to Take a Nap? You Need a Nap Mat

Having trouble getting your toddler to sleep during the day? Might I suggest a Stephen Jospeh nap mat. Yes, you read that correctly–a nap mat.

Never heard of it? Me either until I got one and now I don’t know how I ever managed without one. Stephen Joseph–probably best known for adorable kids’ backpacks and lunch totes–makes these genius little mats designed to make naps a little more “fun.” Instead of telling my daughter it’s time for a nap, I just tell her to snuggle up with her turtle. Even though I am technically asking the same thing, the turtle always works and voila! my daughter is in napping position.

The mats are $50, which I know sounds like a lot of money. But for 2 hours of peace and quiet in the afternoons, it’s a price I’m willing to pay.
