4,000 infant hats donated for CLICK for Babies!

November 8, 2013
This year, crafters joined forces to knit and crochet nearly 4,000 purple caps for newborns. They'll be given to parents when they leave the hospital as a reminder of the Period of PURPLE Crying
There is a stage in some babies' lives of increased and often inconsolable crying. This can lead to frustration and infant abuse in times of intense stress. The Period of PURPLE Crying informs parents about this developmental stage and provides coping techniques.

We made the call, and you answered! So, from your loving hands to our office, the hats were gathered together and will soon make it to the head of an infant near you!
