Juniper the Jellyfish is a fun amigurumi project that your little one is sure to love! You can make this jellyfish (with sewn eyes instead of plastic safety eyes) to comfort a preemie, NICU baby, or newborn infant, as crochet toys with coils remind babies of the umbilical cord, which can help calm them. Articles have reported evidence that they can calm baby’s breathing, regulate baby’s heartbeat, and give baby strong oxygen blood levels. This jellyfish can also serve as a fun play toy for children, as décor in a kids room, or as part of a mobile in a sea-themed nursery!

This handmade gift is perfect for birthdays, baby showers, craft fairs, and more! Easily customize your jellyfish by using different colors and adding embellishments!
