    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.

    All our items are designed and manufactured by The Topponcino Company to meet or exceed US-safety standards (CPSC) for babies 0-3 years old.

    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 age is the topponcino meant for?

    Most families use the topponcino as a cuddling and support pillow for the first 3-4 months. After that, they will use it as a "tummy time" play mat until their baby is 6+ months.

    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.
