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.
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.
