Sieda Parents as Teachers staff worked together to tie-dye onesies with purple. The onesies will be added to many other things for The Period of PURPLE Crying kits for parents of young babies. The onesies, and other baby items, were donated by the Faith United Methodist Women of Libertyville. We appreciate their wonderful donation of purple fleece tummy time blankets, onesies, baby hats, mittens, and socks. Thank you from Sieda and the families that will benefit from them.

All of the Faith UMW of Libertyville’s items plus The Period of PURPLE Crying program informational items will be in the kits. This will include the program’s DVD and booklet from the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome, plus black and white visual stimulation cards. In addition, there will be other resources from other programs. Material information from Safe Sleep for Iowa Babies, Infant See, Healthy Moms, Happy Kids (Futures Without Violence) cards, and how to download the free Text4Baby app. 

The Sieda Parents as Teachers (PAT) has also received baby quilts made and donated over the last few months by Jessie Caves.  Thank you for your beautiful creations that will be given to PAT families.
