A few months ago, Caroline started rolling over while she slept. The problem was, she was still swaddled at night, so she would get trapped on her belly, and that scared the daylights out of me! But I couldn't put her to bed without being swaddled, because she would wake herself up. So my problem was coming up with something that would help her sleep, but still be safe for my princess.
After a little online research, I kept finding links to Zipadee-Zip - a one-piece, star-shaped sleeping bag that offers the cozy, snugness of a swaddle, but gives baby freedom to move. It promises an easy transition from swaddling, which is exactly what I was looking for. Zipadee-Zip was kind enough to send Caroline a Zipadee-Zip to try out. I was a little skeptical at first - could this really work? Caroline was used to a very tight, arms-at-her-side swaddle. I tried it out at naptime first and was actually shocked to discover that she actually slept soundly!
To this day (3ish months later) Caroline still sleeps in her Zipadee-Zip every single night. She is free to roll around, and actually sleeps on her belly most nights, and can crawl and even pull herself up when she wakes up in the morning. I guess our next battle is taking away the Zipadee-Zip, but I'm not too worried about that. I love the fun prints. The hands are a little more "worn" because Caroline constantly has them in her mouth. The zipper does bunch a little bit in one spot, and we have to kind of push that part down so it doesn't stick out in her face, but she could care less. I'm super satisfied with the results!
