We have had our Zipadee-Zip for just over a month now and we have had such a great experience. We wanted to give baby girl more freedom but just suddenly quitting swaddling was not working out for us very well. Then we found the Zipadee-Zip!
It gives baby girl the freedom she wants, but the sleep that she needs. Without it we find she stays restless, taking what seems like forever to finally fall asleep. She loves putting her arm over her face while falling asleep and the Zipadee-Zip makes it all that much more easier for her. Before she would struggle to get her arms free from the swaddle, and succeed. This way, we are both happy!
It was an interesting transition at first, and I was not sure if she would like it. I know how much she enjoyed her hands. It really helped her sleep, and fall asleep much faster. She can play with her hands while awake! It's not a big deal at all. She still sucks on her hands, which leaves the arms drenched. The collar is also a bit odd. It comes up a bit high, which also leaves it drenched in drool. A little extra laundry for us, but it's fine.
We started with a small Zipadee-Zip and transitioned to the medium. We started using it for naps and that was a great way to go. We had issues with her naps being super short and finally got her to sleep for 2 hours! yay. It worked instantly, she had never slept without me until we put her in the Zipadee-Zip.
The Zipadee-Zip is a great way to transition out of the swaddle! We had such a great experience with it. I highly recommend it to everyone. Our baby girl is 6 months old now and has successful ended swaddling. We started when she was about 5 months and it was such a smooth transition!
