Our baby girl likes to be cuddled and likes to be close to mommy during the evenings. This means that usually she is wrapped around me in a baby carrier. Then I saw a tester call for the skin to skin top by Eldenberry Blossoms. I was very intrigued to see how that would work so I signed up and was chosen to test!
The idea behind the skin-to-skin top is that there are many benefits for the baby when they receive skin to skin contact. Of course our girl is not a newborn anymore, but this top still works great. I put her in and just like a carrier she is close to me. The top holds her tight to me. This top does not replace a baby carrier as you still need to hold the baby but it works great if you are sitting on the couch.I used punta di roma for the top, which has a great recovery and holds the baby well. You can also make it in knit or jersey. What is important when choosing the fabric is that it has great recovery. I made the basic top but there are many more options, such as a hood, thumbhole cuffs and a pocket you can add. It is on sale until November 7th.
Fabric: punta di roma. I bought the black punta at megastoffen, the yellow punta comes from Petite Couture.
