Like many new moms, I was set on doing things my way when Oliver was born. But there were a few family tips (aka demands) that I couldn't ignore. Like "put a hat on that baby." Sure it's in the glorious 80's now, but fall is right around the corner. And even if you're indoors with the little one right now, chances are the AC is cooling things down for you. An easy way to ensure baby won't get too chilly is to use the old hat trick.
