Sales of Firefighter Zipadee-Zips® Support NFFF


You and your future firefighter can get a great night’s sleep, show your fire service pride, and honor the memories of firefighters who died in the line of duty. Each purchase of the new firefighter print Zipadee-Zip® wearable blanket sleeper from Sleeping Baby Inc. will support the work of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF).

Stephanie and Brett Parker created the Zipadee-Zip to help their infant daughter – and them – get a full, restful night’s sleep. The unique design of the sleepers keeps babies feeling snug and secure, and prevents them from waking up when they move or roll during their sleep.

“We’ve been so fortunate and wanted to give back in some way. We have always admired the commitment to service that firefighters make and have donated water and sport drinks to our local department,” explained Brett. “When we learned about the NFFF through a friend who has participated in the annual Stair Climbs, we thought this could be a great way to show our appreciation for the sacrifices these firefighters and their families have made.”

The firefighter print sleeper was designed by Stephanie specifically to help support our fallen heroes and their families. It will be available in sizes 3 months – 24 months and will sell for $36.95 plus shipping and handling in June. is offering NFFF supporters the firefighter print first and you may add your name here to be notified when to order. will donate 10 percent from each sale.

“We are very enthusiastic about this new relationship with Stephanie, Brett and Sleeping Baby Inc. This is a terrific way for anyone to give the important gift of a good night’s sleep and support all our efforts to honor the fallen, assist their survivors and work to prevent future line of duty injuries and deaths,” said Chief Ron Siarnicki, executive director of the NFFF.
