BT232 Foam Topponcino ONLY (covers to be ordered separately)
TOPPONCINO "Security Wrap" (Italian: to.pon.chi'no)
Order one or two covers (BT234) that exactly match the Michael Olaf topponcino.
This foam topponcino is made of 1/2" thick rubber foam covered with unbleached cotton muslin. It is hand tied to keep the cover securely in place. The foam topponcino can be put in the washer and air dried. Made in the USA.
We consider a topponcino the single most important shower or baby gift.
The importance of the topponcino cannot be overstated. It wraps the infant with security from birth, preventing the startle reflex, and allowing him to be held securely, and easily put down after falling asleep without being awakened. Yet when the infant awakens he is free to exercise his body in the most natural manner, which is not the case when being swaddled. The infant also finds comfort in the feel and smell of his topponcino. The value came home to us when the grandfather of our neighbors' tiny infant sat holding his granddaughter securely in his arms and said that, because of the topponcino, it was the first time in his life he had felt comfortable holding one of his many grandchildren!
It also allows an older sibling to safely and comfortably hold the baby.
NOTE: We recommend that 2 topponcino covers (BA234) be ordered for each topponcino.
