Zipadee – What? Yes you guys. This is called a Zipadee-Zip. I actually first heard and saw these while watching Shark Tank (my husband and I are slightly addicted). After seeing how sweet the creator and owner of this company and how genius they were, I had to reach out to them (they are as sweet in real life as they are on T.V.) but their product however, is a total game changer.
Let’s talk science. The purpose of the Zipadee-Zip is to help the swaddling transition. For some reason this sounds like an easy task, but being a mom of a brand new baby – you count every minute of sleep you get! My babe had the hardest time transitioning because his arms would flail and hit his own face. Scientifically, these are made so that babies aren’t completely bundled in tight, but if while they are sleeping, their arms move around, they will touch the perimeter of the Zipadee-Zip and never have that “falling sensation”. Their arms won’t fling around (and hit themselves in the face like mine did!) either. End result? More sleep for everyone in the house!
Not only that, but they have one for todders too! The toddler ones are called “The Flying Squirrel”. *The one pictured is the Giraffe Jungle Zipadee-Zip for younger babes.*
Right now until March 1st, you can get a Zippadee-Zip for $5 off using promo code: MAMAHOOD (make sure to use all caps!) They are so awesome to hook us all up with their product and to help us all get a little bit more sleep. 🙂
