My babies have all loved to be swaddled. It helps them relax and sleep well, and more sleep for baby means more sleep for mommy! Unfortunately, around three months old my babies are able to wriggle their little hands out of their swaddles. They scratch their little chins and wake themselves up. By four months old, they can completely bust out of the swaddle in a few seconds. They still have the startle reflex, and should be swaddled, but they break out so easily, it doesn’t do any good. I always call this the fourth month sleep regression, because no one is sleeping anymore!
The Zipadee-Zip is a swaddle transition sack. It is perfectly designed to allow babies access to their hands, while still helping them feel cocooned.
When a baby throws out their arms, it is called the Moro reflex. When their arms meet resistance, they settle back to sleep. If they don’t meet resistance, they will startle and often cry. This is why swaddles work so well; they keep infants’ arms from flailing and startling them.
As you can see, my son can keep his hands near his face, but if he begins to startle, the fabric creates a boundary.
Each Zipadee-Zip is made of cotton and flame resistant modacrylic. Sleeping Baby is committed to using only the finest materials. They, also, do not treat their fabric with toxic chemicals, unlike other sleep sack companies, so they are perfect for your baby’s sensitive skin. The Zipadee-Zip is light-weight and perfect for layering with baby clothes and jammies. The Zipadee-Zip is made with a fabric zipper cover, so your little one won’t get pinched or scraped.
The Zipadee-Zip is not only a sleep sack but is also great for in the car seat. Unlike traditional swaddles, you can safely buckle your child in their carseat, while they are wearing the Zipadee-Zip. Fluffy coats and car seat pads are dangerous, in the event of a wreck. The Zipadee-Zip is the perfect way to keep your baby’s little hands warm and keep them comforted, without compromising their safety.
The Zipadee-zip is also perfect for doctor’s appointments. You no longer have to pull your baby out of layers of clothes, simply unzip, and your baby is ready to be weighed and measured.
The Zipadee-Zip is also a great way to protect your baby from germy surfaces in the store or while traveling on planes or public transportation.
My son still has a pretty strong Moro reflex, but we’ve been using the Zipadee-Zip during nap times. My son snuggles in and quickly falls asleep. He is able to sleep with his hands near his face (without scratching himself), which has been his goal since birth. He is taking good naps again, and that makes me one happy momma!
