The Zaky HUG®: Comfort When You Can't Hold or Be There

Separation is painful, especially for a baby. The Zaky HUG will embrace them until you can.

Babies thrive on being hugged, and parents cherish holding them. The Zaky HUG extends the power of your touch when life gets in the way and you can't hold or touch your baby.

The Zaky HUG: Extending the Power of Your Touch

The Zaky HUG creates a soothing environment that promotes sleep by mimicking the shape, weight, scent, and warmth of a parent's touch. It also ensures proper posture to support healthy musculoskeletal development.

Quick Reference for The Zaky HUG

The Zaky HUG uses the power of touch to simulate the feeling of being held, which increases melatonin and serotonin—hormones that help replace cortisol (the stress hormone) with feelings of relaxation and calm. By virtually replacing all other developmental tools, it provides a simple and effective environment that minimizes human errors and unnecessary disruptions to sleep.

Evidence-Based Device for non-pharmacologic pain management, neuroprotection, self regulation and apnea/bradycardia

For over two decades, The Zaky HUG has nurtured hospitalized babies and young children, supporting their sleep and family bonding. Research shows that using The Zaky HUG is "effective and easy in reducing pain during invasive and painful procedures." In a randomized controlled trial, it "resulted in increased physiologic stability of premature and early-term infants by promoting self-regulation, reducing stressful behaviors, and decreasing apnea and bradycardia."

The Zaky HUG®Supports “ABC's of Safe Sleep”

The Zaky HUG® is perfect for BACK TO SLEEP and supporting the transition to safe sleep "ABC" (Babies should sleep Alone, on their Back, and in a Crib). Simply remove The Zaky HUGs once the baby is asleep or is unsupervised, unless otherwise advised by a pediatrician (depending on the medical condition of the baby). Older children can safely keep The Zaky HUG® overnight and many use them for years to come.

By providing containment and comfort, The Zaky HUG reduces the need for swaddling, which can be restrictive and developmentally inappropriate if used for extended periods.

Universal Comfort

The Zaky HUG® is recommended for any child (or even adults), regardless of size, medical condition, or developmental stage. Sometimes, all we need is love and a HUG scented by a loved one.
