If you had to name your least favourite chore as a Mother (or Father), what would it be? Mine is changing diapers. When my children were infants it was so quick and easy. If I had all the supplies within arms reach, I could change a diaper in two minutes flat! As my children aged, the task got harder and harder. Once, they learned to walk it became a nightmare. Now whenever I change DD1’s diaper it is a huge battle! She’s wiggly, she’s annoyed and she’s anxious to get back to playing.
No matter where I change her or how prepared I am, its the outfit that she is wearing that determines how tough the battle will be. When she is wearing a skirt/dress or pant is pretty easy, but when she is wearing a onesie the battle is epic. Whoever made the snaps on onesies, hated mothers! No matter if the sun is shining or its the middle of the night, I can NEVER align the snap properly. It always takes me two or three times to get it right and in the winter, I worry that my baby’s toes will get cold! There has to be an easier way to change a baby’s diaper!
Erin, the founder of Zipaboo, thought so too! After graduating from Florida State University College of Business and Jim Moran Institute of Entrepreneurship, Erin became the mother of two beautiful boys. She loved spending time with children and always sought after products that were comfortable, cute, and make mundane tasks, like diaper changing, easier. After fighting with snaps during a diaper changing session, she gave birth to the idea of the Zipaboo.
What is Zipaboo?
Zipaboo is a footed onesie for babies that allows easy access to the diaper through a zipper that starts at the base of one leg, circles the belly and moves back down the opposite leg. Unlike snaps, the zipper creates a flap that allows a great access to the diaper area, while keeping the chest and the toes covered. All Zipaboo outfits are created out of the finest Peruvian Pima cotton. This particular cotton was chosen because of its durability, softness and resistances to piling. Changing your baby’s diapers become quick, easy and less frustrating, allowing you to get back to the fun task of playing!
The Diva’s opinion!
When I first saw the Zipaboo, I was impressed! The material was super soft, the seams where strong and there was not one thread out of place. The outfit I was sent is called SYDNEY. It has a pink body with white sleeves with pink polka dots. DD1 was thrilled when she saw the pink outfit. She couldn’t wait to put it on and it took all I could to wait until after bath time! I was sent a size 12-18 mth, the Zipaboo is very generous in their sizing. DD who is 20 months old and average size, fit comfortably into the outfit (with a little room to grow!).
The product did exactly what it proposed to do! I was amazed at how much extra room the zipper and flap of the Zipaboo gave you, when trying to change a diaper. I didn’t have to worry about cold toes and it took me no time at all to complete the task! With Zipaboo diaper changing is quick, easy and efficient! We love our Zipaboo and recommend it to everyone we know.
