If you have kids, chances are that at some point you had or have a playard.

The playard.

You use it for naps, staying at a relatives or traveling. We have used ours for two kids now. Our daughter slept like a dream in it, but when our wee lad reached the 25lb mark, he decided that it was too uncomfortable to sleep in. The lightly foam covered hardboard was not going to fly for Captain Comfortable any longer.

This past week we went away on a family holiday and little man had to sleep in the playard. I had corresponded with some Mom friends a few months back about places that had reasonably priced foam for a project that I am working on. One of them suggested The Foam Shop, as they had purchased a piece of foam for their playard.

Ding, ding, ding!

The Foam Shop

The Foam Shop

What a fabulous idea! I had never considered get a piece of foam for our playard to make our son’s sleep more enjoyable for him and us. I measured the “mat” and took the dimensions to the nearest The Foam Shop and the gal there said that they have had several requests for foam mats for playards.

It only took 10 minutes for the mat to be cut to size and it cost me under $40.

We used it this past week on our trip and we all slept like kings!

Thank you Mommy Friend for the suggestion, and thank you The Foam Shop for the new playard mat.
