Made for Bonding

Our goal is to make skin to skin time easy and attainable anywhere and anytime your baby needs you close.  When you connect with your little one, you teach them how to connect with others.  Skin to skin time is the first step in developing a loving, empathetic and lifelong bond.  Bonsie is designed by a mom and therapist to help make this important first step a little easier!
