Baby hat for 4th of July

By Ingrid Schraufstatter

Red white and blue just for you 0-3 month old. I know most people are really weird about not letting babies overheat in the summer, but in my family baby’s get bundled no matter the weather. A rule of thumb is to have you baby wear an additional layer then what you are comfortable wearing. Especially the first 3 months, I’m of the school of thought to keep a hat on that little head!
