The Science Behind the Zipadee-Zip
The star-shaped pointed sleeves and star-fish design is patent pending because it inspires sounder sleep than any other wearable blankets on the market. The slight resistance in the wing-span allows a baby to move around freely while still providing the enclosed, cozy sensation babies enjoy so much in the swaddle and the womb.
The "Moro" (or startle) reflex jolts a baby awake with a falling sensation. Babies are startled because they wake up and can’t feel their edges like they could in the womb. The Zipadee-Zip provides those "edges" or womb-like environment while providing them freedom to roll and use their arms and hands safely. This is why the Zipadee-Zip will work when all other products parents have tried to transition their babies typically fail. The Zipadee-Zip was designed to aid the swaddle transition but has so many other fabulous uses as well!
The many uses of the Zipadee-Zip
The Zipadee-Zip is THE solution to the swaddle transition.
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!
Helps prevent older babies from climbing out of their crib or big girl/boy bed! 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!
Small (3-6 months old) - 12-18lbs for babies up to 28 inches tall

All About Our Fabric
All of the fabrics from our cotton blend to our poly are especially engineered to be soft and breathable to prevent the risk of overheating. This makes them ideal even for babies with eczema or sensitive skin. We never have and never will spray our garments with any chemicals. All loose fitting baby PJs are required to be fire retardant due to regulations by the CPSC. We would love to be able to have 100% cotton Zippies, but to do that, we would have to treat them heavily with chemicals. That is simply not an option for us as the safety of the baby is our number one priority! We do, however, have wonderful cotton blend Zipadee-Zips available to choose from. We go to great lengths to comply with baby sleepwear standards and testing without using chemical treatments on our products. We use fibers that are naturally flame retardant to accomplish this so no harm is caused to those little ones. This prevents any risk to the babies ingesting or being exposed to harsh flame retardant chemicals. We are one of only a handful of baby sleepwear companies in the world that use this unique, patented technology. We DO make some of our size small Zipadee-Zips in untreated,100% cotton fabric because the law permits us to do this without chemical treatments, but once the sizing moves to a medium, the law requires any 100% cotton garments to be treated with chemicals, which we choose not to do. We will always ensure that your little ones are sleeping both soundly AND safely!
In addition, we do our very best to keep as much production within the states as we can and pay a higher price to do just that! We actually grow a lot of our cotton in the United States but have to have our Zipadee-Zip fabric made and sewn overseas since there is sadly no manufacturer within the US that is set up to comply with the US government's regulations for baby sleepwear without the use of harsh chemical treatments. We also employ women from the U.S. to help you answer any questions you might have to help your little one get the rest you deserve.
