If you’re wanting to fit in workouts once you’ve been cleared by your doctor yet your baby is still very young, using a topponcino is wonderful! From the later newborn weeks to the end of first few months of life, a topponcino can be used to have your baby right next to you while you workout, whether he or she is awake or asleep.
Me, Christina Chitwood, with my baby boy, Caleb, at 9 weeks old.
USING A Topponcino
In addition, to our home gym, we have used Caleb’s topponcino a lot at various places around the house and especially downstairs in our living room where we love the Montessori newborn baby space.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
You only need these two items to have an incredible, portable play and nap place that can help you fit in your workouts and so much more:
If you’re wanting a longer topponcino or a wool-filled topponcino, this is a good option.
HOW TO USE THE TOPPONCINO
THINGS TO BE AWARE OF
- Leave plenty of extra space between you and your baby when you’re working out. You don’t want to risk tripping near him or her.
- As with any baby item, make sure to be with your baby and monitor your baby while he or she is using the topponcino.
- You should be able to use the topponcino until your child outgrows the topponcino. Use your own discretion as to when is the best time for your baby to start or stop using the topponcino.
