"He is carried by means of a soft mattress, something like a hammock, so that he remains in a level and horizontal position, similar to his pre-natal position.”
Dr. Maria Montessori, Education for a New World
MONTESSORI INSPIRED DESIGN
Topponcinos were introduced to the first-world in the 1940’s by Maria Montessori: Italy’s first female physician, founder of the Montessori education system and three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee.
Used by parents for generations, the topponcino has now become the most-recommended Montessori baby item.
Made to the official Montessori Assistance to Infancy course standards
Our authentic topponcinos are hand-crafted of 100% natural cotton, and made to the official Montessori recommended dimensions.
Covers are made of a finely brushed, French cotton twill which creates a rare blend of softness and durability. Inserts are made of multiple layers of natural cotton batting encased in premium cotton muslin.
