For my future grandchild

Amazing Product.

This was by far my favorite item for my newborn. I packed it in my hospital bag and used it right away. Once home, it was perfect for relatives who hadn’t held a newborn in many years. It makes the passing off experience way more calm and less cumbersome. I could tell my baby was super content in her own space. Bravo for an amazing product ! Make sure to add it to your registry!

Perfect for newborns

We loved our topponcino so much, especially during that 4th trimester sleepy newborn phase. We mostly used it so we could rock our baby to sleep and then set her down without her waking up because of being set down in a cold bassinet, the topponcino stayed under her and kept her asleep. The only downsides of the topponcino is that it's not easily laundered, it's spot clean only and we all know accidents happen with babies, and also that they grow out of it fairly quickly. My daughter is 5 months old now and just about to be too big for her topponcino, although I imagine she will keep sleeping on it, it's now too small to hold her with.
