Zippy nighttime diaper changes? We’re in.

As excited as I am about the impending arrival of Baby #3, one thing I am not particularly looking forward to is the sleep deprivation that arrives on the scene with a newborn. I recall with vague familiarity the middle of the night feedings and changings–and realizing in the morning that all the snaps on the baby’s PJs are mismatched. That will no longer be an issue with this adorable onesie.

The ZIPaboo is a revelation for all those weary-eyed parents fumbling with diapers and fiddling with snaps in the middle of the night. With a single zipper to gain access to baby’s bottom, the ZIPaboo is a no-frills, genius way to make that groggy process just one tiny bit easier.

The patterns are adorable, as you can see, and come with even more adorable product names, like Saylor, Sam, Noah and Sydney.

The zipper is contained in the central leg area, so babies can be changed quickly for their comfort. With snaps, if you pull a little too eagerly, you end up unsnapping the whole onesie all the way up to the baby’s chest–just more work for you after the diaper change. Uh, no thanks.

While middle of the night changings are not the first thing I’m looking forward to, at least I can get in and out quickly with just one zip. Jeana

ZIPaboo is available for $36 from the company’s website.

    I absolutely love my Zipaboos! They have made changing diapers, in the middle of the night especially, so much easier. The fabric and design are beautiful! Not only are both my boys enjoying theirs, but I’ve given a few away as gifts to friends who love them as well. Thank you Zipaboo!

    I sent some of these to my cousin, and she loved them! Especially the soft cotton, quality construction and convenience during late night diaper changes.

    The quality of the pima cotton and the design makes this the perfect gift for any new mama! Many times we hesitate to purchase these kinds of items for ourselves because we are so busy as a new mom. With a product like this, it will last from baby to baby!

    These are wonderful!!! They are my go-to baby shower gift. It’s that baby item you don’t even know you need until you’re trying to change your baby and realize there has to be a better way. Great find! Material is good quantity, too.

    I loved using Zipaboo with my son when he was a baby. So easy to use! My favorite was how cuddly he was in them. They are so soft & the material stays super soft after washing. I loved the sleeper so much I have given as gifts to several of my friends.

    I’m upset my kids are too old for these now, but I give one as a baby shower gift every time and my girlfriends love me for it!
