The Nap Nanny: Tips for Safe Use

Due to recent reports concerning the Nap Nanny we’d like provide a few pointers on using the Nap Nanny safely.

Information and Video provided by Nap Nanny:

The Nap Nanny is a portable recliner designed by a mother to increase comfort and improve infant sleep for babies with colic, reflux, gas, colds, earaches, flu & other special needs. The Nap Nanny is also great for feeding twins, reading books or for babies who do not like to sleep on their backs.

For safety reasons, the Nap Nanny® should never be used inside the crib, bassinette, or play yard. It should only be used on the floor. The American Academy of Pediatrics, as well as the Consumer Product Safety Commission, recommends nothing be placed in the crib other than the baby. Also it should never be used on an elevated service, nor soft surfaces like a pillow, bed, or cushion.
It should only be used on the floor.

Make sure to connect the Velcro straps to the plastic D-rings located on the foam structure. This must be done EVERY time you take off and replace the Nap Nanny® cover.

The Nap Nanny® is ideal for helping babies sleep, but we also want them to be safe. For this reason, we recommend the Nap Nanny® be used for overnight sleep, feeding and play time for infants that are 8 pounds (3.6 kilograms) or above, as long as they fit comfortably and have adequate head and torso control.

The Nap Nanny® has no top end weight limit. However, once your infant can sit up or becomes too active you should no longer use it for sleep. Sitting up usually occurs somewhere between five and eight months of age, however all babies develop differently.
