Stephanie, created of the Zipadee-Zip wearable blanket, is one of our favorite people in the world, and when she heard that we were doing a birth-story themed Labor Day giveaway, she was eager to share her own birth story with all of you! Here it is:
I was induced into labor with our daughter, Charlotte, who is now 3 years old because of how far past her due date she was, so when I became pregnant with our son, I was hoping that things would happen a bit more naturally. Our son, Maverick, was born on February 16th of this year and he came into this world in a way that only a baby named ‘Maverick’ could!
Maverick was always an active little guy and would often wake me up in the middle of the night while I was pregnant because of how loud his hiccups were! On the 16th, he woke me up once again, but this time it was with more than hiccups! I woke up to a hard kick followed by an audible ‘pop’… followed by my water flowing like Niagara falls! I was so excited that he came into the world in his own timing and I will never forget the excitement of rushing to the hospital knowing we were about to meet him. After having lost a baby to miscarriage only a year before Maverick was born and being told that I may not even be able to get pregnant again, the birth of our little guy brought more joy than I can even express in words!
Swanling Slumber Sleeper™, Slumber Swan, and Slumber Silkie
The Slumber Sleeper™ is an innovative approach to creating a cozy, loving and safe sleeping environment for your child. Created by Swanling Innovations, this innovative 3-in-1 sheet is the perfect safe sleep solution for your child – it’s a mattress protector, fitted sheet, and sleep blanket all in one! Paired with the wonderfully soft Slumber Swan and luxurious Slumber Silkie, both with the snap-in-place system, you and your child will enjoy a better (and safer) night’s sleep. One lucky winner will receive the Slumber Sleeper™, the Slumber Swan, AND the Slumber Silkie.

It’s a safe, effective alternative to traditional lovies and provides comfort to your baby through the night. The Wearable Lovie is always in reach as your baby goes in and out of sleep cycles. Plus, as your baby becomes increasingly active in the crib, The Wearable Lovie cannot be thrown on the floor where other comfort items always end up. It is the tool that helps your baby learn the art of self-soothing and independence in the crib. The perfect addition to every child’s sleep routine, the Wearable Lovie carries your baby through the crib years and transition to the big kid bed.
