NapUp is the first solution to safely, comfortably support your child’s head when they sleep in their car seat.

Created by a team of top designers, orthopedists, engineers and parents, the NapUp child car seat head support is designed to keeps your child’s head upright while they sleep, letting you focus on the road and feel secure knowing your little one is safe and comfortable.

The NapUp is made of two parts, the head support that attaches to the car seat and the head strap that connects to it. The head support can be attached once and then left on the car seat or high back booster. The forehead strap is connected with Velcro, so it can be made bigger or smaller to accommodate any size head and to fit your child as they grow.

When your young one is awake, the head strap can be moved up, out of the way of their head. When they falls asleep, just push the forehead strap down with two fingers, or they can pull it down by themselves. The forehead strap is designed to leave about 2.5 cm of room between the fabric and the child’s head, allowing for safety and freedom of movement.

As the only head support device tested and proven to pass multiple crash tests for head, chest and neck safety, NapUp is fully compliant with US, European and Canadian safety standards. NapUp passes rigorous standards including US–FMVSS213, US–NPRM213 (US Side-Impact) and EU–ECER44. The pillow and strap materials are also made with high quality OEKO-TEX Standard 100 and are flame retardant.

The fabric is made from advanced “no sweat” materials and is machine washable on the delicate cycle.

Features and Benefits:
  • Keeps your child’s head comfortably and safely up as they sleep in their booster seat
  • Created by a team of top designers, orthopedists, engineers and parents
  • Forehead strap can be moved up when child is awake and down when child is asleep
  • Passes multiple US, EU and Canadian crash test standards for head, chest and neck safety
  • Nonrestrictive forehead strap is designed to leave 1” room between fabric and child’s head


The NapUp has been tested with crash tests on various leading car seats, including Maxi-Cosi, Britax, Graco, Evenflo, Safety 1st and Cosco.

Every test they have found that the Nap Up did not affect the performance of the Car Seat in the crash test or the safety of the Child.

What happens during an accident, when using NapUp

In the unfortunate situation of an accident, NapUp's forehead strap automatically detaches and allows for the natural movement of the head, so the use of NapUp does not restrict the head in any way. Furthermore, it is important to note that NapUp does not alter the way a car seat or high back booster performs in an accident.

Can I use NapUp on an infant seat?

The product is NOT suitable for use on an infant seat. It was developed for front facing car seats and High-back boosters.

What if my child does not like using it?

Most probably if your child says they do not like using it, it hasn't been installed or fitted correctly. In all the tests and from the feedback received from many users, once NapUp was properly installed and adjusted to the specific child, the children loved it!

Does the child sweat when using NapUp

We have been very strict in choosing high quality materials for NapUp. NapUp is made of "no sweat" materials (OEKO-TEX Standard), much like workout clothes, and uses a special technology to create "air flow" panels for maximum air circulation, in order to prevent the child from sweating

Napup is pretty good

Our son is 5 - he hardly ever sleeps in the car, but when he does his poor wee head lulls forward and I get a neck ache watching him. We looked for a solution and Napup seems the best solution.
It looks bit babyish - I think it would look better in a neutral colour, but you can't fault it! Super easy to install and use! My son often pulls in down to protect his next fun bumpy driving as well..

Napup head support

Works really well stopping head flop. Much better than constantly pulling over to push her head back in to position.

Bobbing head, no more!

Love this product, i no longer need to worry about my toddler's head bobbing around when she falls asleep in the car!

Excellent but sad as cannot be use as car seat in australia.

I was misled with reviews that some aussies bought this capsule so straight away without thorough research I purchased it trusting reviews. I am only aware that it cannot be installed in the car after purchasing it as husband checked if it pass AU standard and it doesn't but it is a very good pram regardless in its own right so I just used the pram for walking and never used it for car seat 😊 Doesnt take much space in boot 😁 and very easy to fold up and unfold and it sometimes helps my baby sleep when it is folded up and used as a rocker.

Awesome seat

Purchased for my 6 year old who had outgrown her Safe n sound seat height wise and she is on the lowest setting in this one. As a try I put my almost 13 year old in it and he fits also so this will last until she no longer requires a seat. I love that it has latch connectors so the seat won't become a missile if I happen to have an accident without her in the car. Daughter says its super comfy. Quick delivery from Winkalotts too, reached rural Christchurch in a few days

Love this booster!

Bought for average height 8yo boy. First time using booster rather than 5 point harness. Great he can do up himself. Looks like will last for at least a couple of years height wise.


My 2 year old LOVES this!! So easy for her to ride and light weight if we need to pick it up to cross the road etc. goes over bumps/stones well because of the bigger tyres. Awesome bike!

Love this seat

Purchased to take away on holiday and its been great. We have now used it to replace our big high chair. My only feedback would be that the crotch strap is a little short as I had read on previous reviews. But it does the trick for my 13 month old.
