… the Nap Nanny Chill is there to help. Many babies become fussy at nap time because they are uncomfortable having to lie flat on their backs. The Nap Nanny Chill is a portable recliner with contoured sides and safety harness that keep the baby secured gently and safely in the center and won’t let them slip off or crawl out. Made from light, durable foam, it weighs three pounds, has a waterproof lining that protects, is extra soft, removable and washable. The Nap Nanny Chill was designed by sportscaster and mother of two Leslie Gudel after her husband told her to stop dreaming about the perfect nap and play time seat and go create it. The company launched in 2009, and has grown into a team of 19 in order to keep up with their success.
