Using the SnooZieMat for Toddlers on the Go

It feels like I have been gone forever! August and September are my busiest months at my full-time job full of lots of travel. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to take Dan and Aiden along so I have lots of traveling-with-a-toddler related posts coming soon. I figured I would come back with a fun product review post and giveaway from Sleeping Baby. When I realized how much traveling would be happening at the end of the summer, and the multiple airports and hotels we would be in,  I wanted something comfortable and portable that Aiden could use to take naps while we are on the go. I knew about Sleeping Baby’s SnooZieMat line and thought it would be a perfect solution.

Disclosure: I received a SnooZieMat in exchange for my honest review. However, I have purchased Sleeping Baby products in the past and love them! Thank you for supporting the brands that support this blog. All content and opinions expressed here are my own.

 

You may remember the company Sleeping Baby from one of my Ultimate First Year Essentials Posts on the ZipadeeZip. This company has so many great innovative products. I love checking back because it seems they are always coming out with something new and helpful. The company was created by a mom who was tackling the issue of baby sleep so I always know the products are going to be mom-approved!

The SnooZieMat is a perfect nap-on-the-go solution for busy toddlers.  It is a fleece-y polyester mat that folds into a backpack. It has a pillow (that does not detach — which is a good thing when you are traveling — one less thing to lose!) and a top section that a toddler can cuddle up under. They are super cute and there are several different character options. We chose the Choo Choo the Train SnooZieMat because of Aiden’s current love of trains. When it is folded it measures about 15 inches thick. It’s a little thicker than I would have liked, but it fits in a backpack and worked out just fine. It is easy to pull out and put back together.

We used the SnooZieMat a bunch on our trip. It was good in the airport in the downtime before our flight. He didn’t always nap but it was nice to not have to worry about him playing with his toys on the dirty airport floor. He did use it to nap during the flight. We had three seats together so we would lay it out across one of our laps and the middle seat and then Aiden would nap. We also really liked having it in the hotel. Hotel rooms get a lot of traffic and I don’t believe hotel room floors are the cleanest surfaces. We would lay out the SnooZieMat and let Aiden play on the floor.

Now that we are home, I think it will be great to send to home care for nap time and his grandparents or cousins house for sleepovers. With the winter coming Dan is already planning on blanket forts with Aiden, so I am sure the SnooZieMat will come in handy for that too. It is machine washable so I just threw it in the laundry with the rest of our vacation stuff.

About Melissa

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to my baby Aiden Milo (born November 2015), and a police wife to my husband Dan. I started this blog because, after having Aiden, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the er-lovely (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Considering we may have more kids in the future, I want to document everything we do, so we remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!

    Love this! I’m struggling to figure out how my 17-month-old will sleep best as he’s a busy guy, especially when travel later this month! Thanks for sharing your experience with Aiden!

  • Bianca Munoz

    Oh this would be great for my 3 year old daughter. She is all over the place! Thank you for the review and giveaway!

  • Jessica Gipson

    Silicone Mats Are a Must-Have For Toddler Mom for protections and comfort.

  • Heather Jordan

    I love this idea and would be perfect for nap times at daycare too! These are adorable!

  • Amy Pierce

    This reminds me of the tri-fold foam mats we used to bring with us to daycare and preschool. I don’t have kiddos, but will for sure recommend to friends with little ones!

  • Fazeela chung

    Perfect for my child…especially nappy times

  • Nicole Zerbini

    We are always on the go and this would be so perfect for a traveling mama!

  • Pat Ferro

  • My Veteran Woman Life

    Would love to have had this when my kids were younger!

  • Candace Galan

    Because toddlers will fall asleep anywhere and perfect while away from home

  • Colleen Maurina

    My little grandson is required to bring bedding to his preschool for nap time and this SnooZieMat would be perfect! It would be so much easier than several pieces of bedding and would also make nap time so much fun!

  • Amanda Grover

    I think this is a must have for my toddler because she fights sleep till the very end, and sometimes ends up on the floor. I like that t can be easily moved from room to room, and packs away easy for storage or travel.

  • ClickClick

    I think this is the cutest sleeping mat. The little ones would love to sleep on this at nap time.

  • Kim Avery

    It’s perfect for naptime at grandma’s!

  • First of all, choo choo! Second, TMNT PJs! Our kids would get along lol. Love this for travel, easy to pack.

  • What an easy thing for traveling! In fact – I kind of want one for myself to pull out when I need a nap at work 😉 That’s OK, right? ☺️

  • Babies to Bookworms

    This is so cute! What a fantastic idea for naps on the go!

  • Betty Boiron

    This is such a cute nap mat! My toddler would love this!

  • Too cute! We love trains in this house.

  • Kayla O’Neill

    This adorable! I think this would be perfect to bring with when traveling in an airport just in case you had a long delay! There are not many comfortable places to nap in airports and this looks small enough that you could take it with!

  • Lisa

    It’s amazing because its easy to carry around and easy to use.

  • Tiffany Banks

    This would be awesome because it is PERFECT for naptime anywhere!

  • Betsy Davies

    My little one loves trains, too. And he is still using his zipadee zip for naps and bedtime! But the snooze mat seems like a great addition.

  • Heather w

    This would be so useful for naps anywhere! Especially when I have house work to do.

  • Laura Cruz

    Perfect for napping on the go!

  • Jamie Fuller

    I love this- looks so comfy! I want one for me! But I’ll settle for one for my kiddos ❤️❤️❤️
