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:

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
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..
Works really well stopping head flop. Much better than constantly pulling over to push her head back in to position.
Love this product, i no longer need to worry about my toddler's head bobbing around when she falls asleep in the car!
