Like most new moms, Lisa had been up night after night changing her newborn son's diaper. She was so exhausted she could barely function, let alone match up the tiny snaps on her baby's pajamas.

Frustrated by endless mis-snapping and re-snapping, Lisa found zippered pajamas, and thought her problems had been solved. That night when she unzipped her son's pajamas, he started to cry from the shock of cold air. Although less time consuming, Lisa hated that she had to expose her baby's entire body with the zipper. She felt her baby's comfort should come first and yearned for the perfect footed pajama, which was both soft and cozy for her baby and hassle-free for mommy.

One night while feeding her son she thought of "Zippyz." Zippyz are patented footed baby pajamas for easy and fast diaper changes with 3 snaps on the chest and a zipper from foot to belly. Finally, a solution suitable for baby AND mommy! Plus Zippyz are a unique baby shower gift! Along with her best friend and business partner Erica, Lisa decided make the diaper changing world a better place for all new parents!
