The Zipadee-Zip is THE solution to the swaddle transition.
- Provides the cozy, enclosed feel and sensation of the womb or swaddle but full range of movement to push up and roll over.
- Encourages longer, sounder sleep for babies who have never been swaddled!
- Keeps a little one’s hands warm all night long.
- Prevents a baby from scratching their face (great for babies with eczema).
- Teaches a baby to self-soothe to sleep by providing a cozy environment to get comfortable in.
- Helps aid the transition from a Rock and Play Sleeper or a Swing to a Crib.
IT'S SO EASY
The Zipadee-Zip Zipper makes diaper changes a cinch! It makes trips to the doctors’ office a breeze (the baby can be buckled in to a car seat in the Zipadee-Zip and it can be easily removed off of a sick little one for a doctor check-up).
It's perfect for travel! It keeps germs at bay on plane rides, grocery visits and stroller rides and a baby can easily and SAFELY be buckled into a car seat, stroller, baby carrier, etc while wearing the Zipadee-Zip.
IT IS EASY TO USE! A much easier alternative to PJ’s due to the zip enclosure and no arm or leg holes to fuss with!
PERFECT FOR BIGGER OR OLDER BABIES TOO!
The Zipadee-Zip helps prevent older babies from climbing out of their crib or big girl/boy bed!
It is perfect for stroller rides on cold days! Because the Zipadee-Zip can be buckled into a stroller, you don’t have to worry about blankets or socks or mittens falling off and those little hands and feet stay nice and warm
Zipadee-Zip Sizing Size Age Weight Height Extra Small 3-6 months 8-13 lbs 18"-26" Small 4-8 months 12-19 lbs 25"-29" Medium 6-12 months 18-26 lbs 29"-33" Large 12-24 months 26-34 lbs 33"-37" Extra Large 2T-3T 34 lbs + 37"-42"
Note: The ideal Zipadee-Zip fit has a slight resistance in the arm span. This is intentional as the cozy fit provides the snugness to help baby self-soothe as he transitions away from the swaddle.
Still not sure which size is best for your little one? Keep these tips in mind:
Although this is the smallest size available, the extra small is not intended to be used as a swaddle alternative. Choose extra small only if your baby meets the age requirement (i.e. at least three months old) and can roll, but is on the smaller end of the weight/height chart.
Most babies between four and eight months will fit in the small Zipadee-Zip, but the main determining measurement is height. Choose the small Zipadee-Zip if your baby is rolling, is between four and eight months, and is between 25 and 29 inches long.
Tip: For babies just starting to transition, small is a good choice as it provides that resistance in the arm span, which is very soothing to a baby who is used to sleeping in a swaddle.
The medium Zipadee-Zip is ideal for babies who have already been using the Zipadee-Zip. Choose the medium if your baby can roll over, is between six and 12 months old, and is 29-33 inches tall.
Tip: If your baby is just starting to transition, choose small and then work up to medium.
The large Zipadee-Zip fits most one- to two-year-old babies who are between 33-37 inches tall. Choose the large if your baby:
• Needs a wearable blanket
• Needs to prevent scratching
• Is transitioning from crib to toddler bed (the cozy nature of the Zipadee-Zip encourages your baby to stay in bed)
Do not choose large if your baby is just starting to transition out of a swaddle.
