Preemies have a very special place in my heart. I have known several family members and friends who had premature babies (one was just 1 pound when he was born if you can believe it) and they needed to be hooked to monitors constantly. It warms my heart to know that there are toys made especially with their well-being in mind and I love making these little critters, knowing they will be in good hands. The octopus is a great cuddle buddy. He has eight arms to hug with and is a wonderful life partner. Octopuses provide comfort because the tentacles remind babies of the umbilical cord in the womb. Preemie babies especially benefit from this because they tend to feel comforted and not rip out their monitors as much. It also improves health overall. The Octopus is also great for developing motor skills like grabbing and to enhance sensory experience for any baby.
Measures 6 or 10 inches from the head down to his tentacles. The eyes are crocheted to keep your baby safe from choking hazards, we want those kids to be healthy and strong!
Comes in different colors! If you would like a different color than what is listed, please message me, I'm happy to work with you.
**NOTE** *Please be certain to wash your octopus with Dreft or a baby-friendly detergent before giving it to your baby! Your octopus is machine washable, just use a gentle warm/cold cycle.*
