I received product from Sleeping Baby to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.
Practical gifts are always at the top of my radar when it comes to gift giving. Whether it be a birthday, Christmas, baby shower, or another celebratory occasion, I find that most people appreciate practical gifts. And a few years ago, I came across a company that EVERY parent of little ones needs to know about. Sleeping Baby Inc.!
The Holy Grail Of Sleep = The Zipadee-Zip
Since you can’t give the actual gift of sleep, I’ve found the next best thing. Seriously! My kids have NEVER been great sleepers. That is, until baby number five when I discovered the Zipadee-Zip. When she was about 8 or 9 months old, I got my first “Zippy” and our lives changed. She went from co-sleeping to self-transitioning to the crib. With NO tears! Because of the unique design, she felt comforted and snuggled enough with her Zippy that she didn’t need me to be right next to her. It was complete bliss. And because she was getting better (and more) sleep, so was I. The domino effect was amazing as the entire household was in a better mood after the Zipadee-Zip entered our lives.
The unique star-shaped design makes the Zipadee-Zip a swaddle transition “sleep suit” that is geared for ages 3 months and up with sizes that go into toddler/preschool-hood! Not only does it offer enough resistance to contain the startle reflex of babies, there’s enough stretch that it’s not too binding either. If you’re worried about kids being able to move, let me reassure you. Our daughter could walk, crawl, play, and pick up things easily in her Zippy. The design is truly amazing.
I’m actually a foster mom and every single foster baby we’ve had has been an amazing sleeper. On the foster care group I’m in, many foster moms struggle with this and the Zippy gets recommended time and time again from other foster parents who have experienced this phenomenon. So successful sleeping with a Zipadee-Zip is quite common.
Plus, they work great for travel! Just buckle your kiddo right into the carseat in their Zippy.
The SnooZie Mat
As kids get older, Sleeping Baby also has another fun sleep time option that’s perfect for naps or rest time at school, the SnooZie Mat! Currently available in four fun styles: Timmy The Tortoise, Pearl The Mermaid, Choo Choo The Train, and Parker The Princess.
These clever nap-time solutions are perfect for on the go. They fold up into a backpack style bag for travel but unfold to a 48″x24″ mat roll! And the best part is that they are machine washable!
They are cute, cuddly, and fun! My kids adore them.

I’m a city girl turned country by my awesome husband and we have three busy boys and two darling daughters. I love spending time with my family, reading Karen Kingsbury novels, and catching up with friends while our kiddos have play dates. I’m blessed beyond measure and can’t wait to see what God has in store.
