Everyone gets sleep with Zipadee-Zip - Review

 * I received this product to facilitate my review.  All opinions are my own based on our experience.

Sometime ago I received this lovely work-at-home-mom creation.  It's called a Zipadee-Zip!

What is a Zipadee-zip?  Well it's like a star shaped blanket that acts like a swaddle.  It is designed to aid transitioning out of the swaddle.  You know it comes sooner or later, when babies just start escaping the swaddle, they start rolling over,  and they startle and start crying.  This means less sleeping for mom and baby.  Using a Zipadee-Zip helps little ones sleep through the night.

I was always worried when my munchkin would get loose from the swaddle.  I was always checking if it was still wrapped nicely.  This was the only way my munchkin would sleep...being swaddled.  A couple times during the night I would hear little one start to cry because the swaddle became loose and startled easily.  Then I needed to wrap again so I started looking into other swaddles and I saw Zipadee-Zip and started checking it out.  Yes I found this around 2 a.m.  I talked with Stephanie the mom behind Zipadee-Zip and she suggested the sizes and told me how to get baby used to the zippy. 

Zipadee-Zip was nice enough to send us one for review.  So we started using the swaddle during nap time and then little by little through the nights.  My little one loves the zippy! Was so happy when we all slept through the night :big smiley face:  I would see my little one roll over and not feel paranoid about blanket covering my baby's face. 

It's also nice an light for perfect for sleeping during these warm nights.

How it works-
The star-shaped pointed sleeves and star-fish design
is Patent Pending because it inspires sounder sleep than any other wearable blankets on the market. The slight resistance in the wing-span allows a baby to move around freely while still providing the enclosed, cozy sensation babies enjoy so much in the swaddle and the womb. The ‘Moro’ or startle reflex is what prevents a baby from sleeping soundly and jolts a baby awake suddenly. The reason babies are startled is because they wake up and can’t feel their edges like they were able to in the womb. The Zipadee-Zip provides those ‘edges’ or that womb like environment while still providing them the freedom to roll around and use their arms safely.

  1. I don't have a current little one, but they have all figured out how to get out. LOL

  2. These are really neat. If these are better than the swaddlers that bundle the baby I would to try this.

  3. That's pretty neat that it acts like the womb in giving them 'walls'! My son would have liked this better than swaddling as he wanted his arms free from day one but still had the startle thing. Maybe for next baby.

  4. Love this! Helps baby with a startle reflex get used to not being swaddled. Fantastic!

  5. I love that this allows baby to feel secure and yet have freedom to roll over and sleep comfortably.

  6. Our new grandson likes to be able to move his arms so this would be perfect for him

  7. These are really neat. I really think this would be perfect for my nephew!

  8. I like the concept of this sleeper. It helps reduce the startle reflex and transitions babies from the swaddle stage.

  9. I started using the Zippy when my daughter started rolling over. I still wanted her to be swaddled but had to think about her safety first! The Zippy gave me a great peace of mind!

  10. We love our zippy! My son loved his swaddle and we did not know what to do, finding the zipadee-zip was the best thing ever!

  11. Helps the baby with the moro reflex. What a great invention!! :) I want to try one with my new baby!

  12. The zippy really helped my son sleep for longer stretches with no swaddle. Not to mention, it's extremely cute :)

  13. Wow, this would be good for kids with non typical sensory integreation. Do they make bigger sizes? for like a 7 year old?
