Disembodied hands to keep infant feeling secure

Behold the Zaky Infact Pillow. "Zaky — It's Like Leaving a Part of You with Your Baby." It's $38.95 at the Pregnancy Store.

The Zaky is also great when you have to leave your baby with someone else — at your baby's daycare facility, when he stays with a babysitter, or goes to visit his grandparents. The Zaky will provide a constant and familiar support giving your baby a sense of security. The Zaky also assists the caregivers on positioning your baby and your baby will feel and smell mom.

If you haven't given birth yet, the Zaky is great to bring to the hospital when your baby is born. Scent it with your own scent beforehand to help your baby when he/she is in the bassinet next to you or give it to the nurse when your baby is taken to the hospital's nursery. This way you give your baby "your hand" with your scent, and the nurse can use it to support and position your baby. Also, because your baby smells and feels something constant from birth, the Zaky helps the transition to going home.
