Sleeping Baby Inc is the home of the Zipadee-Zip Swaddle Transition solution! The Zipadee-Zip was originally created for a little girl who refused to sleep without being swaddled 😉 It’s meant for babies 3 months and older and it provides a woomb-like environment, but with room to push up, roll over, and wiggle around safely. The slight resistance in the “wing-span” helps a baby self-soothe and sleep better than they would in a traditional sleep sack or PJs.
