The Zaky keeps loved ones together during covid-19

Our family knows how difficult it is to be separated during a disaster because that is how The Zaky was born.  Our son, Zachary, was born right before a flood that shut-down the hospital and his life-support equipment, then he was still in the NICU during September 11, 2001 (and now graduates high school during this pandemic).  Keeping families together even when they are apart is what The Zaky is about.

Hospital staff is stretched to the max and mostly only one parent (if any) can be in the neonatal or pediatric ICU at a time. 

The Zaky ZAK increases duration, comfort, and safety during kangaroo care / skin to skin contact sessions in the hospital and at home. Make each session safer and more effective with The Zaky ZAK!

Impregnate your own scent in The Zaky HUG and unwrap the power of your touch when you are not there with your loved one. Babies sleep better when they feel closer to you. You sleep better when your baby sleeps better.
