must-have item for new baby!

This is the second time I will be using a topponcino. I highly recommend it to all of my mom friends. Great quality material. My baby really loved it when he was a newborn. It was very easy to transfer him to his bassinet. I cannot wait to use it again for my next baby due in 2 weeks. Family members felt at ease when holding baby. Be sure to follow cleaning advice from website. Customer service is impeccable and I love that it is a small family owned business. Thank you Topponcino company!

Amazing customer service and commitment to the products!

I was gifted a topponcino and I washed it before using. My water left some mineral stains on the removable insert and with one quick email, a new one was on the way to me! Such great care and customer service, and as a first time mom, I really appreciate that! Highly recommend.

Love this product

My sister bought us a Topponcino as a baby gift. At first I was skeptical - what would we use this for? But it has become one of our favorite baby gear must have. Our little girl sleeps on her Topponcino every night! It makes holding, rocking, jiggling, swaying so easy.

As recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), NEVER use any baby lounger or support pillow as a sleep device. NEVER use any baby lounger or support pillow unsupervised. Use the Topponcino for actively engaging with your baby during supervised holding, lounging or tummy time. It is important to be in the same room and supervising your baby when using the Topponcino. During the night, use safe crib practices and do not use your Topponcino in, or in place of a crib. Never leave your baby unsupervised. Never use in a crib or other sleep device. Never place on soft or uneven surfaces. Baby loungers and support pillows should not be used as co sleeping devices. The safest place for a baby to sleep overnight is in a crib with a fitted sheet.

Please contact us with ANY questions you may have before using a Topponcino.

What the Montessori world is saying

This Italian Montessori wonder is a widely underused baby item probably because no one knows about it! If people knew about it - it would be a top pick for registries around the world.

Daniel, Arc Montessori

I made sure it was packed in the hospital bag, ready to use from birth.  It is also one of the few items for the Assistants to Infancy that Maria Montessori mentioned herself.

Angela, Montessori Moms

It’s also a wonderful way for an older sibling to hold their baby brother or sister with ease, giving the protective parents some peace of mind as well.

Jeanne-Marie, Viola Montessori

One of my Montessori baby must haves is a topponcino. A topponcino is this beautiful Montessori baby material that allows for a smoother transition for the baby from the womb to the world.
