Great purchase

Molds to baby and makes it easy to transfer infant to another arms without much disturbance. Thus is a wonderful gift for a new born.

Great gift for friend

I purchased this as a gift for a friend and had it delivered directly to her. They didn't include the gift message I typed in to the site when I ordered it, so my friend had no idea who it was from, which is good if you want to surprise someone. From the pictures I've received from my friend of her newborn baby using it, I can say that it looks very stylish and cushiony. I would say it was a successful gift and I probably would get one if I had my own baby.

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.
