Zipadee-Zip Review and a Giveaway

We love our Zipadee-Zip so much I reached out to Sleeping Baby and asked if I could do a review for their products. They graciously said yes and offered my readers a giveaway. You definitely want to enter this giveaway and if you don't win you can always use the code that will be available after the giveaway to buy one. I highly recommend getting one.


We first tried the Zipadee-Zip when Zander was about 4 months old. It was tough and he fought every second of it. He wasn't rolling yet so we went back to the swaddle to give him a little more time. I thought him still being snug in something would work but he wasn't ready. We tried again around 6 months and haven't looked back. I thought we would be swaddling our baby forever. When we put the Zipadee-Zip on Zander he immediately calms down and knows it is time for bed. It is his comfort blanket, he snuggles right up to you and puts his head down with his hand or bink in his mouth. The Zipadee-Zip allows him to still get to his hands but not smack himself in his face.

I'll be honest I was a little nervous for him to be in something that we would have to transition out of, but I have good news, you really don't have to ever transition out of the Zipadee-Zip. They have options all the way to 5T! Now I am sure we won't be in them that long but who knows and it is comforting knowing it is an option if we need it. I highly recommend the Zipadee-Zip as a swaddle transition for anyone struggling with transitioning out of the swaddles.




We have recently started using a blanket in the crib now that Zander is mobile but when we first started using the Zipadee-Zip we did not use blankets and I love the warmth it provided Zander at night. I didn't have to worry about his hands getting cold because he was snug as a bug in his Zipadee-Zip. Once he gets older they do offer hand and feet free options as well, the Flying Squirrel, which like I said goes up to 5T.

Did you know Sleeping Baby also offers teethers and teething necklaces? I had no idea! Zander and I are huge fans of teething necklaces so I was so excited when they offered to send us one. I LOVE that the necklaces are longer and the teething beads go all the way up the necklace. They are 100% non-toxic and BPA free. Zander has been so distracted by everything while nursing so not only has this helped to soothe his gums it also helps distract him while he is nursing so he actually nurses. A definite win win, plus who doesn't love a classy black and gray necklace that can be worn with so much. Go check out the other ones they offer plus the teethers and clips here.





Here are some videos to help give you a visual of the Zipadee-Zip. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhNGmFR8TGg and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEUhunLX_Hc . Though if I am being honest you don't need the videos, trust me you want this baby product! We love ours!!

Now is your chance to win a Zipadee-Zip of your choice from their website. It will be shipped directly to you! Don't forget to like Sleeping Baby on Facebook to enter their monthly giveaway! Also if you don't win there will be a coupon code for you to buy one once the giveaway ends. Good luck!

  7. I have used the Zipadee Zip with 2 foster babies. They were swaddle babies on the verge of rolling. This product was a MIRACLE!! I only wish these had been around 8 years ago with my youngest. He was a NICU baby and only slept swaddled. It was a LONG process to get him to sleep when he began to roll over and it was no longer safe to swaddle him. I would choose the Gone Huntin' print in size small.

  13. We found out about Zipadeezip at mayfest my husband had sparked up a conversation with her husband while I nursed the baby and the kids played. It was a life saver our little one had nonacid reflux and had already been hospitalized once for having an ALTE ( apparent life threatening event) she turned blue and stopped breathing after a bad reflux incident. Needless to say I was a paranoid mom who is getting absolutely no sleep. The hospital had advised us not to swaddle due to the new recommendations along with her already had stopped breathing once yet her newborn reflexes continue to wake her up incessantly. It was still cold and I was scared to put anything in the crib with her to keep her warm so we spent a lot of nights with her sleeping on my chest and me afraid of falling asleep. We brought home the zipadeezip and she immediately loved it she was able to lay in her bassinet without any blankets and without my fear of not being able to keep her warm and sleep for six hours straight I had a little bit of a freak out and had to make sure she was still breathing when I woke up and she was still sleeping she is now 14-month-old and can't sleep without her Zippy she even uses an old one that's too small as a love

  16. I initially bought ours to keep baby girl's hands warm. However, we quickly learned how amazing the zipadee zip is with sleeping. She is 7 months old taking three 1+ hr naps and sleeping most nights. Not to mention she puts herself to sleep!! Love it!

  17. We LOVE our "zippy's" for our 10 month old twins!! They have slept in them since they were 3 months old and know that it's time to sleep when they wear them. Win for everyone!

    If I won the giveaway, I would order the next size up for my boys in pretty much any of the prints that are offered. Love them all!

  19. Zippy's saved our sanity!! At 6 months my daughter wouldn't sleep besides swaddled and in her Rock N Play... we didn't know what to do so we gave these a shot!! It was a MIRACLE worker for us! Not only did we get her out of her swaddle easily she started sleeping in her crib with no fuss!! These are the most amazing thing ever! She is now 8 months and we simply need another one and would love to win! She doesn't even have a girly one so I would love a girly one!! Way to go zipadee zip!

  23. We love Zipadee Zip! I used them for my son starting around 5 months old - he's 2.5 now and still loves them. I also started using them with our new daughter when she was just 6 weeks old - my oldest son is in kindergarten which means dropping him off and then picking him up 2 hours later - there's rarely a day when that doesn't involve a trip to the school while the baby's already asleep. I was sick of trying to get her out of the velcro swaddle wrap, into the car seat, and hoping she'd go back to sleep. The zipadee zip let me take her right out of her crib and into the car seat without changing her. I would definitely get the Damask Fleece, because it's adorable and we live in Utah so it's freezing outside right now!

  24. I would love the zipadee-zip ! My 6 month old does not sleep through the night. Wakes up twice during the night to feed. I've heard good things about this product but haven't had the courage to purchase. Please help! This mama needs some sleep! And so does my baby boy. Thank you!

  26. My best friend showed me the zipadeezip a year ago, and I'm still kicking myself that I don't own one. I think my 2 year old would love a flying squirrel and I'd love to promote a shark tank product!

  30. The Zipadee-zip has helped my 5 month old learn to fall asleep by himself and safely sleep on his tummy. It hasn't miraculously helped him sleep through the night or anything but it has been the only thing other than a swaddle he will sleep more than 15 minutes in. He is about to grow out of his small zippy so if I won the the giveaway I would get the bigger size in one of the boy prints, maybe gone huntin.

  32. We already have my 2 month old in a Zippie (he's a big boy so it fits him great!). He wears it all night and sometimes half of the day just to keep him snuggly and warm. We only have one at the moment so we definitely need more! We currently have the ducks print but they always have great choices which makes it hard to pick a favorite!

  34. Just received Gone Huntin' in a small, and it was exactly what we needed to transition my 4mo from the swaddle AND the Rock n Play. We're all FINALLY sleeping again... I love this product!!!

  39. We need another zippy! One isn't enough... It's either have a hard nap while it's in the wash or never wash it! Haha. I love the neutral prints!

  40. I just got one, wish I could afford two!!! We got the deer print, super cute. My dream is to find the mustache one, but the guitars are so cute too! Though to decide, thanks so much for the opportunity!

  41. I would love to win a year round Zippy! It's the only thing that keeps my guy calm and safe during sleep! I would probably pick the guitar one, or the plain gray or teal! I really would love to win for my little guy- having to wash the only one we have over and over gets old! Haha!

  42. Interested in how well this will work for Lennon. We got away from the other zipper swaddle but he wakes up with cold toes. -Morgan

  43. I LOVE our zipadeezip! Best part is it keeps my baby's hands covered! He likes to pinch and scratch when I put him to sleep. It's a nightmare without this! I need another one to be able to wash the one I have!

  44. My 8 week old hates swaddles but I'm hoping he might like the zippadee zip to help him sleep better
