THE NAP STRAP™
WHAT IS THE NAP STRAP™?
- The Nap Strap™ is a comfortable head support for children. It is used when they’re asleep to prevent possible neck strain and to prevent the child’s head from flopping forward. It’s a car seat accessory that can be used on both front and rear facing car seats. It is not a safety harness. It also prevents Mom and Dad from becoming distracted while driving.
HOW DOES THE NAP STRAP DIFFER FROM SUPPORT PILLOWS?
- The Nap Strap™ is designed for use on forward facing car seats for kids between the ages of 1 to 6 years old, to prevent their head from falling forward. Pillow supports are great to help support infants in rear facing car seats to help stabilize the head (restricting a side to side movement), however the use of support pillows to prevent the head from falling forward are ineffective or worsen the positioning of the baby’s head. Most of these head supports place more padding behind the child’s head, which further encourages the head to fall forward.
IS THE NAP STRAP™ TRADE MARKED?
- Yes, both the design and name have been Trade Marked.
DO I PUT THE NAP STRAP™ ON BEFORE OR AFTER MY CHILD GOES TO SLEEP?
- The Nap Strap™ should only be placed into position AFTER the child falls asleep to prevent the child from playing with it. The Nap Strap™ can be attached to the car seat and moved out of reach of the child so you can simply and easily slide it down into position.
DOES THE NAP STRAP™ FIT ALL CAR SEATS?
- The Nap Strap™ has been designed with an elastic strap and Velcro closure allowing it to be adjusted for a universal fit on most front and rear facing car seats.
IS IT A SAFETY DEVICE?
- No, it’s an optional car seat accessory that provides comfort and support and is NOT TO BE USED AS A SAFETY DEVICE. The Nap Strap™ is not designed to provide any protection in the event of impact. It helps to improve your child’s sleep quality when traveling in the car by providing gentle support only.
CAN THE CHILD STILL MOVE IT’S HEAD?
- Yes, The Nap Strap’s elastic provides gentle support without restricting movement. The child can move it’s head from side to side as well as a gently supported forward movement.
HAS THE NAP STRAP™ BEEN CRASH TESTED?
- Unfortunately, crash testing for this type of product is not currently available in Southern Africa but research of similar products abroad reveal that those straps did not hinder the safety of the child nor the normal function of the car seat when it was crash tested. Nor did it inflict any additional pressure on the child when the collision occurred. Some results also show an improvement in breathing while the child was asleep in its car seat.For more information pertaining to industry safety research and The Nap Strap, please click here.
