    Nap mats/sleeping bags/travel beds - need recs please

    My kids have Ready Beds right now. They've had them for over a year. DD's is holding up great and she sleeps well in it. DS can't stop bouncing on his and always makes it spring a leak. We've sealed it so many times. Also, the cap for the valve broke off this past weekend, so it's time to find something else.

    He needs something that is comfortable for floor sleeping and that will fit him for at least a few years, but it can not be inflatable. He's about 40" tall. I am looking at the Wildkin Nap Mats, but they are only 50" including the pillow. The attached blanket is 40". I'm worried it won't last him long. Is there something similar, like a sleeping bag, that is somewhat padded to make it more comfortable for floor sleeping? About once a month we spend the weekend visiting family and the kids sleep on the floor.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks! Oh, and obviously the cheaper the better, but I want it to be comfy and last him a while, so I think we could spend about $40-50 on this.

    ETA: After looking more closely at the nap mats, they may not be padded after all. Anyone have one?

    Have you looked at the sleeping bags at pottery barn kids?

    Yes, they're cute but don't quite fit the budget.

    I've been pondering the same thing myself. A flat sheet sewn like a big pillow case for the pad and a throw blanket should work.
