Our Dream Come True: The Story of Zipadee-Zip
Like many homes in America and all over the world, we were a two income household. Before having Charlotte, I had every intention of going back to work simply because we weren’t in a position financially where I could stay home with our little girl. I’m sure many moms can relate to the inner turmoil that occurs when maternity leave is over and we are faced with having to leave our precious little ones in someone else’s care when our deepest desire is to stay with them. My sweet husband, who wanted to do everything in his power to enable me to stay home, entertained taking on a second job. The greatest prayer of my heart became finding a way to afford to stay at home but I couldn’t, in good conscience, do it at the expense of my husband not being home to see our little girl grow up. As a family of faith, we knew that nothing was impossible with God and with that knowledge, came a peace that we would be just fine as a family even if I did have to go back to work.
The greatest prayer of my heart became finding a way to afford to stay at home but I couldn’t in good conscience, do it at the expense of my husband not being able to see our little girl grow up.
What absolutely blew me away was how common this swaddle transition issue seemed to be with little ones based on the endless blogs and comments I found on the subject. The ‘Moro’ or startle reflex that causes a baby to suddenly jolt awake, fidget or hit and scratch their face in their sleep prevents many babies from settling those little limbs and getting the restful sleep they need. I became determined to restore sleep and sanity to our household. I set out to find a solution that would soothe Charlotte’s startle reflex and provide her the cozy womb-like environment she loved so much but still give her the freedom to roll over and wiggle around her crib safely. Out of sheer desperation and exhaustion, the Zipadee-Zip was born!
I was so afraid their wouldn’t be life after the swaddle! Out of sheer desperation to give Charlotte the restful sleep she deserved, the Zipadee-Zip was born!Although the first Zipadee-Zip® I put together on my little sewing machine was not nearly as cute as the ones we have available now, it worked! She went from not sleeping to sleeping 12 hours straight the first night and taking two nearly 3 hour long naps the next day and every day there after! Not only did it work for Charlotte but it also worked for our friends little ones.
After a lot of prayer, my husband and I took the leap of faith and scrounged up the small amount we had in savings to build a website. The orders started coming in slowly at first and we would pay for the fabric and sew them as we got money from orders to do so. The Sleeping Baby brand was literally built one Zipadee-Zip® at a time. We are thankful to have experienced more growth than we could have imagined by word of mouth alone with not a dime spent on advertising. We can’t tell you the profound gratitude my husband and I have for the sweet parents that were and continue to be willing to tell others about the Zippy to help spread the word. Nothing makes us happier than to see other parents and babies getting the sleep they both need and deserve!

Brett and Stephanie Parker
I feel that sometimes our trials lead us to wonderful things. I know that happened to the Parkers. Stephanie was determined to be a stay at home mom and God let it happen. Their prayers were answered and Zipadee-Zip was formed. Thank goodness!!! I had a similar experience where I wanted to be a stay at home mom when I had my first child. Luckily, my husband made it happen. He had to switch jobs but I knew it was for the best.
In my opinion:
I was lucky to receive a sample from Zipadee-Zip. My daughter Elizabeth was the perfect model for this review. We were given the eLOVEphant to try which I thought was a clever name.
