    @ MONIKA S — Thanks for sharing this neat idea! Would be a good solution for all of our crafty readers who’ve been blessed with sewing skills. I’m definitely not, but I’m sure some of our readers are!

    Thanks again for commenting, Monika!

    I would only like to comment on the ZipaDeeZip…tried to purchase recently and no luck, the money has not been collected from my PayPal account though and pity cos neither of my emails was answered. I was really desperate as my daughter was almost 9months old! What i did i took one of my longer t-shirts and have sawn the sleeves together and put a zip on the bottom and adjusted the neck line…believe me it did not need magic skills to do it but it works wonders for the transition time. ZipaDeeZip idea was great!!! First used it during the day for few weeks and then during night too and then finally got rid of it altogether:)

    @ Jules — thanks for sharing these details! Always nice to have first-hand recommendations like yours. 🙂

    We got the ZipaDeeZip for our son to transition from the swaddleme at 4 months. It was a bessing! He slept as well. We moved on to a sleep sac with free arms at around 7 months. Summer came with the heat and that was too hot. At 11 months, when crawling and standing up began to be much more fun than sleeping, we put him back in the Zip just wearing a diaper… We went from being up allnight to sleeping soundly again!!! I so recommend it!

    we used a Peke Moe too – they have been around for quite a while (our first child we used it with is 6 now! haha) our youngest who is 7 months transitioned perfectily into it to. I think the zipadee thing is kind of simillar to the Peke Moe? looks similar. we got ours directly from New ZEaland via the website http://www.pekemoe.co.nz. some babies need these type of aids.. both of ours have.

    I’m in the process of weaning my son from his swaddleme, and considering using the zipadee zip.

    The Zipadee Zip is awesome! It really only took a couple of days for him to get adjusted from the swaddle to the Zipadee Zip … it wasn’t bad at all. (Even during the dreaded 4 month sleep regression!) Now when we put him in it before naps and bedtime he smiles and coos. And after naps he doesn’t like it when I take it off right away! It has worked wonderfully for us!
