The Zaky ZAK (previously known as Kangaroo Zak) is the award-winning ergonomic device for skin to skin contact and kangaroo care from birth until 3 months until due date.
Designed by Yamile Jackson, a native of Colombia living in Texas, a PhD in ergonomics engineering and [kangaroo] mother of Zachary.
It is ergonomically designed for the golden hour at Labor and Delivery, Operating Room, then in Post Partum, NICU, and all other hospital units, caregiving facilities, and homes to hold one, two, or three babies weighing up to 15 lbs.
The Zaky ZAK is the only device engineered to support the baby even in the event that the parent falls asleep during kangaroo care.
Metal or no metal in zipper? "No metal" uses YKK® zippers, last longer and are stronger - they can also be used for c-section in the operating room.
Cotton is washable inside the wash bag that is included. Wash every 3-5 sessions or when soiled.
WEAR THE ZAKY ZAK, CLOSE THE ZIPPER BEFORE PICKING THE BABY UP
Parents wear it with nothing underneath for skin to skin; all others that do not have consent from the parents to do skin to skin then they wear the ZAK over the clothes.The Zaky ZAK is soft, breathable, stretchy and strapless top made with natural fibers that wraps around the torso of the adult (it is unisex) and closes in front to the side with an adjustable zipper.
It provides safe, comfortable, hands-free kangaroo (skin-to-skin) sessions while sitting, reclined. Keep your hands over the baby while walking or standing.
The zippers are quiet and allow for a perfect fit and to partially open the ZAK for interventions, breastfeeding, and allow the baby to move while awake.
It supports standing and sitting transfer and allows for full access to the baby in an instant, quietly, and with minimal disruption.
The Zaky ZAK is used in hospitals since 2010 to support preemies and full term newborns up to 14 lbs in hospitals and thousands of homes globally. Holds one, two, or three babies securely without sliding.
Please consult with your healthcare provider about doing Kangaroo Care, as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, WHO, UNICEF, etc.
SIZING of The Zaky ZAK: Sizing is determined by the chest size (Take measurement up under the arms and around the chest). The Zaky ZAK will stretch to contain the baby. For bigger babies, twins, add one size.
