The Zaky ZAK (previously known as Kangaroo Zak) is the award-winning ergonomic device for skin to skin contact and kangaroo care. Do not accept imitations.
It is ergonomically designed for the golden hour at delivery, Operating Room, then in NICU, and all other hospital units, caregiving facilities, and homes to hold babies weighing up to 12 lbs.
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.
It is soft, breathable, stretchy and strapless top made with natural fibers that wraps around the torso of the adult (it is unisex) and closes on 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 as The Zaky ZAK is not a carrier. The zippers 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 and with minimal disruption.
The Zaky ZAK is used in hospitals since 2010 to support preemies and full term newborns up to 12 lbs in hospitals and thousands of homes globally.
Please consult with your healthcare provider about doing Kangaroo Care, as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, WHO, UNICEF, etc.
