Thanks to Sleeping Baby for providing me with a Zipadee-Zip, free of charge, for review. These are my own honest opinions.
My babies have always been swaddle babies … and it has always been the swaddle transition that has unnerved me the most. Their swaddled position is what has kept them feeling so safe and secure outside of the womb for all this time … and now I am about to let their arms and legs just go free, allowing them to wake themselves through the night either from the startle relfex or from scratching their little face up?! I don’t think so!
In the past I have just continued to swaddle them until the absolute last moment, but that typically means right up until they are rolling, which makes me so nervous from a safety standpoint. We are at this exact point with Baby Girl right now … and then a Zipadee-Zip was sent my way and it took all of my fears away and has kept my baby girl sleeping just as she had been while swaddled.
This concept is absolutely brilliant. Being such a fan of swaddles, I have used many different brands and have lots of favorites, but when it comes to a transitional swaddle, I have never found anything that still keeps arms somewhat controlled and little nails away from faces. I am no longer finding myself barely sleeping from staring nervously at a video monitor, fearful my swaddled daughter will decide that “that night” will be THE night to roll. The Zipadee-Zip is super soft and I love how it has a hidden zipper, so there is no way that the zipper can scratch your baby’s chin or face.
The back story of the Zipadee-Zip is heart warming and one that so many of us can relate to as parents and coming to a point in our parenting lives when we are so desperate for a solution. I so admire the faith in God that this husband and wife team had – and continue to have – in pursuing their dream with this company.
