Infanteenie Beenie

I LOVE INFANTEENIE BEENIE!! One of the things I remember amongst the crazy whirlwind of having baby Sophia was the HAT! I know, sounds crazy! After all the chaos and visitors died down I remember laying in the bed and the nurse brought Sophia in to me and she was wearing a BROWN what looked like a panty hoe stocking hat. The nurse said sorry we ran out of the pink and blue striped hats. I found myself waiting to take pictures to send extended family!! Even when they eventually put a blue and pink striped hat I still was not impressed by the flimsy frayed knot tied stocking. I love the idea of beautiful hats that look adorable but are designed to keep your babies head warm! Just not the ones the hospitals supply, that's why I adore this company!!

"Infanteenie Beenie is an award winning newborn hospital hat.   CPSIA certified (child safe).   Infanteenie Beenie offers the only four seam round newborn hospital hat guaranteed to fit and stay snug on all newborns.  Our hat provides comfort, warmth and style to newborns.   Parents can finally proudly announce the birth of their baby with gender appropriate hats!"

Some useful info that some of you might not know, brought to you by Infanteenie Beenie...

"Why do babies wear a hat when born?

Excessive Heat Loss:
A newborn's head makes up 21% of the total body surface area.  Newborns also have a low percentage of body fat.  Heat loss can occur for a newborn by escaping through the body surface, through evaporation and by cooler surfaces or hands touching their skin.  Because of the large ratio of head to body, it's important to keep the newborn's head covered.  That is why you may barely catch a glimpse of your newborn baby's head and hair before the delivery room nurse places a hat on their tiny head.

Monitoring Baby's Temperature:
In the first hours after birth, medical professionals will monitor a newborn to ensure he/she stays warm and to ascertain that the baby is regulating body temperature.  Nursery staff will dress babies with a hat, diaper, undershirt, one swaddling blanket and a second blanket to cover the baby in a bassinet.  Staff generally monitors the newborn every 30 minutes to ensure the baby maintain minimum body temperature for at least two hours.  They will ensure your baby is wearing a baby during this important time.

Keeping Baby Warm After Discharge:
Parents receive instructions for keeping a newborn warm after discharge.  Babies feel colder faster than adults.  During baths, dry the baby quickly to prevent heat loss and place a hat on the baby's head to minimize heat loss.  In situations where there is a draft or a cold breeze on the baby,
cover their head to keep them warmer."

Chococurb JUNE

I hope you all had a wonderful FATHER'S DAY!! I know my husband did! He was spoiled with love...from homemade gifts from our bubbly two year old, delicious breakfast amongst  lots of other relaxing Sunday activities! Later that night he got to indulge in an extraordinary Chococurb mini box!

I still can't get over how wonderful it is to get delicious chocolate delivered right to your door step every month! The day our box was delivered I had been out running errands in this crazy New England weather... The day prior was 50 degrees and cold and this day was up towards 85* and HOT HOT HOT! When I pulled into our driveway I saw the Chococurb package on my doorstep. My initial thought was NOOOOO of all days I'm not home the chocolate is going to be a puddle of nothing. I walked in the house and opened what I anticipated to be a MESS!! To my shocking delight I found beautiful chocolate unharmed b this crazy heat...nestled neatly between an ice pack and an insulated bag packed with gorgeous orange tissue paper and the lovely Chococurb seal of approval! WAY TO GO CHOCOCURB!! This company seriously never misses a step!!

This is what we got this month...

Alma Chocolate – Milk Almond Crunch Mini Bar

Crunchy roasted almonds dipped in molten-hot caramel stud this not too sweet milk chocolate. By only using real, fresh, and high quality ingredients, Alma's chocolates are always incredibly delicious. The fact that each confection is handmade and unique makes this milk chocolate bar with roasted almonds and caramel even better. We truly hope you enjoy it! Bar size: 2 oz.

Divine Chocolate – 38% Milk Chocolate with Toffee and Sea Salt Bar

With a dash of sea salt and crunch of toffee, Divine arguably created an even better version of their already extraordinary milk chocolate bar.  Bar size: 3.5 oz.

And lastly Gusto chocolate with BACON... This was Unreal!! So delicious!! I love that you are able to shop on Chococurb if you fall in love with a specific bar!
