Review and Giveaway - Zippy Suit CLOSED

Own up, how many times have you got your child all ready for bed only to realise that you did the poppers on his sleepsuit up all wrong?  How many of you have a child that will not just LIE STILL when you are trying to get them changed?   There always seems to be something much more fun to play with somewhere else,  I am dreading the crawling stage as there is only so far the baby can roll at the moment.

I am certainly not alone in these frustrations, and a mum in Cheshire developed the Zippy Suit to make life easier for parents like me.  Their single zip fastening replaces rows of poppers, meaning the Zippy Suit can be done up in no time, making life easier for those of us with wriggly rascals.






We were sent a Zippy Suit to review and we loved it.  Dylan has a habit of rolling over to look for toys to chew the moment you put him down, and I am forever poppering and re-poppering to get him dressed.  The Zippy Suit looked so simple that we used it for the first time on a train.  Going away for a wedding we had to travel during his usual bed time and so went prepared with everything we needed.  Having to change him on a train meant that ease of use was very important and the Zippy Suit did not let us down.  The matching bandana bibs which they also sell kept the suit dry for the time he was in it before bed time, and only reinforced my love for them.


I can't comment on how comfortable the suit is, but after weeks of bad nights, Dylan slept through the night for the first time in ages whilst wearing it (this may also have something to do with the tooth that had come through that morning) *disclaimer - this suit cannot be guaranteed to make your child sleep*.  It was made of high quality super soft material and has no fastenings down the front or back making it ideal for babies however they sleep.  He seemed more than happy to play and sleep in it, and offered an adult sized version, I would not turn it down!

Trying to get a good picture of a wriggler is hard! Especially when they want to eat the camera!
The suits are available in sizes 3-6 months, 6-9, 9-12, and 12-18 months, so from when your rascal gets wriggly.  A word of warning, we did find that the size we had was rather large.  Dylan fitted comfortably in the 6-9 and at 21 lb 7 he is not a small 8 month old.  They come in three varieties and we loved the purpley blue colour and the funky zip pattern on this one.  At only £12 they are a bargain, and you can get 10% off with the code FIRST10Z !
