I’ve mentioned the zCush Baby Nap Mat before HERE and HERE because of how much we liked it. It really was one of those products that we honestly didn’t think about or even know about prior to Trent being born, but were suddenly so grateful to have found it. When we saw it on Zulily shortly after he was born, we had a “Why didn’t we think of that?!” moment. We immediately purchased one on Amazon and used it every single day afterward until he ultimately grew out of it.

zCush Baby Nap Mat

I am seriously THE WORST at transferring Trent from one spot to another. I know that as a new mom, it as an acquired skill to pick up a sleeping baby without waking him up, so I figured I’d get better after several times.

I wish! I always dreaded moving him because I knew he would wake up immediately and then we’d be back at step 1 in the go-to-sleep routine. I actually began to rely on Brett as the baby-mover…untilwe got the zCush Baby Nap Mat.

Before he would fall asleep, we would put Trent in the nap mat and then feed him or rock him to sleep. We would then move him to the spot we wanted him to sleep (usually the Pack n Play) without waking him up because it’s like a big cushion under him that keeps him stable when being held. It zips up the side and bottom…I called it his baby sleeping bag. 🙂

The side zips open for easy access.


It truly was a lifesaver! Especially in those first few weeks where sleep is like a dinosaur…you know it existed at some point, but it has been so long that you tend to question its existence.

And because babies make messes, the mat and cover are machine washable!

The cushion and cover are machine-washable.


zCush has 5 recommended uses for the Baby Nap Mat: For baby’s naptime, holding and safely passing your baby to others, playing with baby in the comfort of your home or on a picnic blanket, cozily feeding baby on the sofa or the park bench, and easily changing baby’s diaper during daytime or in the middle of the night.

I am sad that the nap mat is now too small for my growing boy.



But we got plenty of use out of it for a few months. We got the froggy nap mat, so we fully intend on using it for our next little sleep monster. I highly doubt I’ll be an expert at transferring babies by then…or ever. #parentingfail

You can purchase the zCush Baby Nap Mat online at Amazon or at these local retailers. They offer 2 versions: cotton nap mats with different characters and colors (like the one above) and chenille in different colors.

I do want to tell you that this product was not provided to me for review. We purchased the nap mat ourselves and wanted to share a great product with everyone…especially since it’s not a product that everyone knows about. When we knew we wanted to do a review, we communicated with zCush and they graciously allowed us to offer a Baby Nap Mat as a giveaway to you fabulous readers!




Thanks to the folks at zCush, one reader can win a zCush Baby Nap Mat! This would be perfect for any expecting mom or a parent or grandparent of a baby, whether that be you or as a gift for one that you know! We’ll be using Rafflecopter again (form below), so that means you have plenty of ways to enter the contest…pick as many as you’d like. The more things you do, the more entries you get! And be sure to do the entries you select…I’ll check! The nap mat will be sent directly to the winner from zCush. Contest ends Sunday, December 23rd at midnight and I will email the winner on Monday, December 24th to get a mailing address and color preference (based on what’s in stock). How’s that for a Merry Christmas?! US only please!


Sorry folks, this contest is now over.
