Zaky

image 248The Zaky® is the award-winning bonding, therapeutic, and positioning pillow, ergonomically designed to help the baby feel comfortable and protected while assisting parents and their children feel closer to each other.

It is a soft but weighed pillow, partially filled - so that it comforms to the baby's body - that imitates the look, feel, weight, scent, and warmth of the parents’ hand and forearm. It assures proper positioning, helps with pain management and sleep, provides a sense of protection, and assists with the physical and psychological development of the child.

It is arguably the most loving and useful gift for infants (baby shower presents, healthy, premature or ill babies), toddlers, and special needs children of any age, size, or medical condition.

  • Scent it with your own scent - place it on the chest for a night or with a drop of perfume/after-shave
  • Warm it - in the dryer or towel warmer for a few minutes
  • Wash/Dry it - in the washing bag provided
  • Control the weight and firmness - by shifting the filling

image 250It is all about feeling safe, loved, and protected:  When moms are pregnant, babies get four basic needs met from the womb: oxygen (breathing), warmth, nutrition, and protection.  The lack of at least one of the first three is life threatening.  At birth, babies that cannot do the first three on their own, they will get assistance from a machine (life support): if the baby cannot breath he is hooked up to a ventilator, if he cannot get warm he is placed in an incubator, and if he cannot eat he would have an IV or a feeding tube.

Lack of PROTECTION, however, is not life-threatening but it is extremely important for his development. Protection, when not given by the womb, comes best from the touch, voice, boundaries, warmth, and scent given by the mother and father. No matter the size of the baby, he cannot comfort or position himself at birth, nor he is able to feel protected on his own – Contrary to popular believe, a baby is unable to "manipulate" the parents - sometimes all the baby needs is a hug and a touch that means "you are not alone".

image 251When the baby is not being held, The Zaky simulates the hands by weighing 500 grams, while providing boundaries, comfort, a soothing hand,allowing the baby to feel and a sense of protection 24/7.
