I absolutely adore the Zippy Suit by British babywear brand Zippy. Why no one has thought of this before I don’t know but any parent with a new born will understand why a zip makes far more sense than poppers when it comes to the constant changing in and out of baby grows. Say goodbye to matching up pairs of poppers every few hours, the Zippy suit baby grows feature a single zip along the front reducing the time and stress of every change.
The Zippy baby grow is available in a number beautiful print designs which can’t be found on the high street really making them stand out. The designs are fun and quirky, ideal if you want to dress your new born in something stylish but unique. I received the Pink Flamingo design baby grow perfect for little girls and instantly fell in love with the vibrant colours and the eye catching character print which I understand has been lovingly hand-drawn. Other designs include boy’s blue Alarm Clocks and neutral Mice About Town great for sleepy boys or girls.
Zippy Suits are made of 100% rib cotton that has been woven to a very high specification to ensure a snug, soft feel against babies’ skin. The softness of the baby grow is apparent upon first touch, and I was really impressed that quality was not compromised during the design process of these novelty garments. A high quality YKK zip really simplifies the task of changing a wriggling baby and I was glad to see that a zip guard is incorporated to protect baby’s skin and to stop babies playing with the zip. This was my biggest concern when I first discovered the Zippy suit, but my mind is well and truly at rest after seeing the Zippy suit myself.
The Zippy baby grows also have elasticated ankles which is a welcome attention to detail. This is designed to keep babies feet in the foot area. The suits also have ribbed cuffs which keep arms warm and really drive home the undeniable quality of the garment. Thankfully the Zippy suits are both washable and can be tumble dried as I only have one at the moment so the quicker I can get it ready to be worn again the better!
Zippy Suits are available with matching beanie hats and bandana bibs to make a perfect outfit and present. Available for babies aged 0 to 18 months – Anti-slip dots feature on sizes 6-12 and 12-18 months for when babies are ready to tackle crawling and walking.
I highly recommend the Zippy Suit for parents with little babies or for anyone looking to buy a unique and special gift for a new born baby.
