My son is now 9 months old, and has been using the Zipadee-Zip for almost 5 months. It seems that when he is placed in his suit, its like a trigger to his brain to go to sleep! Ha! I love this thing 🙂
Any update on your energy levels, did any of the suggestions make a difference? I am currently going through similar energy levels. Even though my childs sleep has drastically improved after months of training him with his sleeping cycles, and using various sleep aid options.
Do you have any feedback?

The crying it out method was just ruining me and my hubby!She just hated having her arms free and…[Read more]
Hey Katy! My son loves his Zipadee-zip sleep sack too! He starting breaking out of his swaddle at 3 months and then discovered the Sleeping Baby Zipadee-zip sleeping suit. He averages an extra two hours a sleep a night!
I am a big proponent of sleep sacks! I recommend the Zipadee-Zip! (I found ours at http://www.sleepingbaby.com). The zippy has added an average of two hours of sleep to for my son (which means my husband and I get two extra hours as well 😉 ).
