There’s nothing better than a good, long nap.
He sleeps off his case of the crankies; you get a little time to yourself.
Which is why we’re giving the nod to the Little Giraffe Napsack. Ideal for midday siestas, the three-piece set includes a chenille pillow, toddler-size blanket, and satin carrier to keep it all together.
Whether you’re on the road, in a plane, at Grandma’s or day care, release the pillow and blanket from the straps and have him hunker down for some snoozing.
But what we love most about the cushion and blankie are the satin borders — known in our house as the perfect material to rub between your finger and thumb as you drift off to sleep.
