Turns out my niece is not such a sleeper. She snoozes for 45 minutes or so, then pops back awake. My brother and sister-in-law swaddled her from birth, and that really did help for some months. Then having her arms bound started to make her furious. (Plus, once a baby can roll, a tight swaddle is a safety issue…babies have to have their arms free enough to push on the mattress and lift their little head up to breath.)
Even though I’m a baby-gear expert, I didn’t know what to recommend beyond trying a baby sleeping bag/wearable blanket. But my relatives are intrepid, and found this little Zipadee-Zip. The parents who invented it had the same issue as my bro and sis-in-law, their daughter wanted to be free and coddled at the same time. They invented this star-shaped wearable blanket so that an older baby’s feet and arms can be totally enclosed, yet have some necessary freedom of movement.
If you’re having sleep issues, this might help! This week’s giveaway will offer ONE lucky winner the chance to choose three favorite styles of Zipadee-Zips. It’s a package worth $104 to $119, depending on which styles you chose. (Each Zipadee-Zip costs between $35 and $39 plus postage.)
