These octopus stuffed animals are hand knitted in Montreal. They are about 20cm long in total.
The octopus' tentacles remind the baby's umbilical cord and reassure him in times of stress.
In the womb of its parent, the baby touches and plays with the cord. Once in his new home, returning to a familiar feeling can help him regulate his nervous system.
A wonderful gift for all babies, especially premature babies.
