A first and forever companion for your little one.
The Octopus is specially designed around the natural grasp-reflex of newborn babies. The tentacles of Octopus remind newborns of the umbilical cord from their mother’s womb, giving them a feeling of safety & trust.
They are known to be especially beneficial for premature babies who often spend their first few days or weeks in an isolette, with numerous wires and tubes attached to them, which they sometimes pull out.
Holding onto springy curls may prevent these babies from pulling on their wires and tubes, saving them from the unnecessary discomfort of having them reinserted.
Babies are often looking for something to wrap their little fingers around, and these Octopus Comforters provide the perfect solution, especially when a human touch is not possible. The tentacles are easy to grip and soft on delicate little hands, making them a perfect first toy for premature and newborn babies.
This octopus can also be used as a long-term size comparison to show the growth of your baby - just take photos at regular intervals and watch the octopus get smaller and smaller as your baby gets bigger and bigger!
