The Zaky Hospital and NICU Donation Program

The ZakyHave you heard of the Zaky Infant Hand Pillow?

You can help support families in need by participating in the Zaky Neonatal Intensive Care and Children’s Hospital Donation Program.

I was a premmie baby myself – I was born at 28 weeks and spent 3 months in a humidicrib and the NICU unit, and most horribly, my mum was unable to touch me for three months! This is EXACTLY why I am such a strong believer in natural parenting options – while I was not cuddled in those first three months, my own babies were barely out of our arms in that time. The Zaky is designed for those times when you do need to pop baby down – I think I would have loved one to go to the loo by myself, LOL…

Luckily times have changed a lot since the early 1970’s, and kangaroo care is more common, as is support for breastfeeding and breastmilk feeding and online support for parents, including the Little Aussie Prems network of information and forums.

Here is a bit more about the Zaky donation program:

Many families want to help other babies in hospitals on behalf of their babies who have spent time in a NICU, or on behalf of the memory of their babies, to help families as they travel this difficult and stressful journey.

One such way is to donate a Zaky to the family, so that they can wrap this special ‘hand pillow’ around their baby for comfort when they have to leave.

Zaky have developed a NICU Donation Program.

There are special quantity discounts to purchase The Zaky for premature babies in need of this special comforter that absorbs the scent of Mum for when she can’t be there with her fragile and new baby.

Here is how the Zaky Hospital & NICU Donation Program works:

You can purchase up to five (5) Zakys at regular price ($59.95 each) to donate to a hospital.

Your donation will be matched one-to-one for the NICU Program!

That is, if you purchase 5 Zakys, 10 Zakys will be sent to the hospital.

In addition there is No postage charge Australia Wide.

A Question for You about the Zaky:

Do you think, as I do, that this is a WONDERFUL idea? Do you know anyone who has benefitted from this program?

  1. I love the idea of this – but there is no way that I could afford to buy 5 and send them on – I might have to put this one out there on facebook etc maybe by doing that it will result in more donations and then I can feel like I have contributed.

  2. Hi Jane,
    I guess it would be a nice idea for a fundraiser perhaps? I like the idea too. I’m thinking that I might organise a group sponsorship at some stage in the future…
