Review & Giveaway: SmartZip Sleeper CLOSED





WINNER #55 Jannai

Have you ever wondered how to change a diaper in the night without having to fully undress and wake up a sleeping baby?



Hate it when sleep gowns bunch up around your baby's waist and leave their legs exposed?


Tired of fumbling with a million tiny snaps in the dark?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, than I have the product for you!  






Usually Wiggle Bean is a diaper only sleeper but with fall here and winter fast approaching, I decided that she needs to start wearing pajamas.  We have tried traditional sleepers and I hated that you basically have to strip them all the way down to change a diaper.  Gowns do not work for her because she wiggles (hence the nickname!) around so much in her sleep that they always ended up bunched around her waist or higher.  We have used two piece outfits but it is difficult to get pants on and off without fully waking her up and don't even get me started on those teeny tiny snaps.  I think those were designed to make parents feel stupid.  Seriously, those things are so small! 


At first glance, the SmartZip Sleeper looks like your standard baby sleeper but if you look at it a little longer, you will quickly see that it is so much more.   First, the SmartZip Sleeper is adorable!  It comes in two colors, Made Me Blush for girls and Blue Me Away for boys (or girls!).  The SmartZip Sleeper is available in five sizes from Newborn to 9-12 months.  It is made from 100% cotton and is designed to hug the body for a perfect fit.




The SmartZip Sleeper features a two-way zipper.  Ingenious!  It not only zips like a standard sleeper but it zips from the bottom up so that you can access the diaper area without fully unzipping the sleeper and exposing your baby's body to the cold night air.  


The SmartZip Sleeper also features non-skid feet and a fantastic band at the ankle that keeps their feet in place.  Not sure about your baby but my Wiggle Bean is Houdini when it comes to getting her feet out of pajamas and pants.



Over Thirty Mommy's thoughts
The folks at Hello World Clothing were kind enough to send me the Made Me Blush sleeper in a 9-12 month size.  I loved the SmartZip Sleeper from the minute it arrived on my door step. It arrived beautifully gift boxed.  We washed it right up and put it on Wiggle Bean that night.  


Wiggle Bean is totally adorable in her SmartZip Sleeper. She will be 9 months next week and the 9-12 month sleeper fit snugly.  Not much growing room left but should last through this winter.  It should be noted that we have this problem with most of her clothes.  She is long and thin so we have a difficult time finding clothes that are long enough while still fitting in the waist.  One other problem we usually have is that the feet in most sleepers are too small and Wiggle's feet are scrunched up.  This was not the case with the SmartZip Sleeper, she actually has growing room in the foot area. Nighttime diaper changes were a breeze, just unzip from the bottom up, take legs out, change diaper, put legs back in and ZIP, DONE!  



I would love to see the sleeper available in more colors or patterns and larger sizes. I also think that it would be great to make a summer version that is short sleeved and made shorts length.


All in all, we love our SmartZip Sleeper. 

Where to Purchase
The SmartZip Sleeper can be purchased directly from the Hello World Clothing Company site.  Even better, $1.00 from each SmartZip™ Sleeper sold is donated to the Amani Children's Foundation.

I like the "unzips at both ends" feature. I also like that it covers the baby's feet in the winter.

The blue me away is so cute! I love the layered look and the 2 way zipper makes it nice for changing a diaper without having to almost take the sleeper off! Thanks for the chance!

well obviously the fact that it unzips at both ends is my fav feature. i hate changing diaps at nite but this would make it easier!

Connie said...

The two way zipper is a fantastic feature. I also like how they have a fabric cover over the zipper ends so that the child doesn't play with the zipper and possibly hurt themselves.

This is great - especially since me and my husband are "talking baby" and I'd be so frazzled on changing a baby at night with having to pull everything off. Smart!
