Why the Octopus?

Why the Octopus?

The very first of the senses to develop in the womb is touch. Throughout those precious months when babies are growing exponentially they are actually using those senses to get a taste of the outside world in a unique and magical way. They can tell when their environment is dark or light, and can hear their mothers voice. One sense that they can not connect to the outside world is touch, because they won't actually touch anything outside the womb until after they are born. 

Baby Octopi

This is why we created the Octopus. As the sense of touch is developing they are exploring and feeling what is around them, including the life giving umbilical cord that attaches them to their mamma.

Once babies enter the world, they instantly turn towards their mamma's voice and are comforted just from hearing her - the reason is because it is familiar. That is exactly why our Octopus is so comforting as well - it is familiar.

Each tentacle on our Octopus is designed to mimic the feel of the umbilical cord and is easy for new babes to grasp, the same way they might have held on to their umbilical cord in the womb.

Once we realized how life changing our Octopus was for new moms and babies, we continued to perfect our modern design; sourcing the softest yarn, eco-friendly stuffing, beautiful colours and ensuring that every single part of it was 100% safe for your baby!

Baby Octopi

From there, we found the most amazing local talent, and had her begin hand crafting every single Octopus that we sell, right here in St.Thomas Ontario. (Watch out for next weeks blog to hear more details about her process and how you can apply to be involved!)

Once we had a product ready for your babies little hands, we hand picked charities to support through your purchases - This means that for every Octopus that we sell $1.00 goes directly to a non profit organization that loves babies as much as we do! 

Our Octopus is available in 5 beautiful colours and 2 sizes so you can find the one that is exactly right for you!

We sat in silence until finally Eric said 'are we doing this or not'. A voice came out of my mouth that was not my own, because I would have screamed NO, but a simple 'yes' came out. Eric got back on the road and we kept going.

I had asked God before we went to this appointment, many times, to surprise us with Joy. I was only expecting sadness, for things to go exactly as they had before. Though we felt He was telling us that He was doing a new thing, I still refused to believe it. That day we walked out, surprised by Joy by a faithful God who showed me compassion and love throughout all my disbelief.

After the surgery I laid there feeling so many emotions that were the opposite of what I had anticipated feeling. I felt sad, scared, lonely, and guilty. I had two babies, but I did not get to meet them or hold them or even know if they were going to live.
