The Zipadee-Zip is a must-have in every nursery and made from various material blends to keep your baby comfortable. Their Zipadee-Zip sleep swaddle blanket provides a way for your baby to stay warm and cozy similar to a baby burrito blanket. Their Zipadee-Zip acts as a swaddle transition for babies aged three months and older.
With the Zipadee-Zip sleep pod there are no more loose blankets in the crib and your baby sleep safer. The slight resistance in the wing-span allows a baby to move around freely while still providing the enclosed, cozy sensation babies enjoy so much in the swaddle and the womb.
The Parkers decided it was in their best interest to move forward without a Shark and turned down the deal with Daymond John. Since then, the company has grown leaps and bounds with an expanded product line available across the U.S. and internationally in Canada, Mexico and Europe.
