9. The Milly Beanie


Hello all! Welcome to day 9.

Today's beanie is a super teeny one for sure. Not even 2 inches big, this precious little hat is really more of a keepsake than a wearable, but it is still super important. All losses hurt, and all families deserve a little something to know we care. Early pregnancy loss is still so taboo, and sadly very common. So many people try to brush it off, especially under 12 weeks, and that's just not right. So remember to add a few of these wee little beanies to your donations, because they are very much needed and I can tell you from experience, they are very comforting.
