OHCE members donate purple caps for newborns

April 1, 2014

Oklahoma Home and Community Education (OHCE) Jackson Ozark group members are donating purple knitted caps to Jackson County Memorial Hospital for new born babies. Purple signifies the early months of life where healthy babies are prone to have an increased amount of crying. Raising awareness of the “crying period” helps new parents understand and recognize the characteristics of normal infant crying.
