Zacky infant Pillow
Too funny for words...and creepy at the same time, but Zacky does make me wonder if they're onto something. Many of my friends just had newborns recently and the reminder of sleep issues is daunting. I actually did sort of forget how painful it was to get the toddler to sleep sometimes in the early days. You know the drill - the gentle attempt to transition the sleeping baby from arms to the crib - but who are we kidding? As soon as you pull your hands away, the baby starts crying. In the early days, my husband used to sit by the bassinet for about 30 minutes after laying the baby down to monitor and quickly pat her down as soon as she stirred from her 30 minute sleep cycle. We aren't about to do that this time around.
And so, maybe Zacky isn't such a crazy idea after all despite the dismembered creepiness of it. You can leave your handprint behind and the Zacky Infant Pillow is made to mimic the weight, size and feel of the human hand. You can even scent or gently heat the pillow for greater effect and it's washable too.
