Benefits of the Topponcino

That this is a material which aids in the transition of life during pregnancy, to the environment after birth. This soft cushion absorbs the baby memories of the child from their time before birth, especially if mother and co-parent sleep with the toppocino, skin to skin during pregnancy, so that their scent, vibration, and more, are present in the fabric. This offers security, bringing calm and order to the child's experience. When being held with the toppocino the infant feels secure and can be transferred to another person or place with ease. This helps with adaptation and acceptance for the child.

Amazing and Perfect

Toppocino is such a great parent run business. From the excellent customer service to the high quality of their product - I simply love their brand. I am based in Switzerland and ordered the Toppocino on a Saturday. My parcel was shipped on the same day and arrived on Wednesday. Ryan was a great help and I am so pleased that everything went smoothly. When I received the package, it was a pleasure to feel the lovely quality and softness of the Toppocino. We cannot wait to use in on our newborn, who is due to arrive anytime now. If you are looking for the perfect Toppocino for your baby, you will not be disappointed with their product. I am convinced it is the best one out there.

The topponcino is such an amazing gift for my baby. Older sisters are able to hold her much easier, as are other adults. This has provided her with a solid reference point and a comfort item even as a newborn. Transitions, such as laying her down after nursing, are so much easier.
