The Zaky: An Extra Hand--Literally

When my daughter was a tiny baby, she needed a hand on her back while she fell asleep. We would stay with her for what seemed like hours, but was probably only 10-20 minutes, leaning over her crib, and keeping pressure on her back. I dreamed of having an extra hand so that I could at least do yoga while I watched her fall asleep. Mommy Writer Blog has a similar issue, so it wasn't just me.

Awhile after my daughter (mostly) outgrew this stage, I discovered the Zaky. Is this the coolest thing ever invented? Or just plain weird and a SIDS hazard? I wasn't sure then, and I'm still not sure about the Zaky, now. Watch a video clip and tell me, what do you think of Zaky?
