I remember when I had my first baby. I was thrilled and excited, yet also very apprehensive. I mean, they don’t send home a manual with those sweet babies! So I spent a lot of time calling my mom.

She raised NINE of us. She did the new baby routine NINE times! If anyone knew how to calm my baby worries, it was my mom.

One thing my mom was always adamant in her suggestions to me was to monitor baby often and keep their head and feet covered!

As a new Mom, I had a lot to learn from my Mom. Especially after my first baby. I remember I’d have a fussy baby and unsure what to do. So I’d call up my mom.

Me: “Mom! He’s fussy. I don’t know what to do.”

Mom: “Is he fed?”

Me: “Yes”

Mom: “Did he burp?”

Me: “Yes”

Mom: “Is his diaper clean?”

Me: “Yes”

Mom: “Does he have a diaper rash?”

Me: “No”

Mom: “Is his head and feet covered?”

Me: “uhm….No….??”

Mom: “There is your problem. Cover those toes and put on a hat!”

And you know what? Most of the time that actually solved the problem!

Apparently, babies like to be warmer than typical adults. Cover the toes in socks and put a soft hat on the head, and it often made my babies quite content.

Thanks to my Mom, I now try to help all my friends as they become new moms. I have a few friends who just had a baby or have a new one due very soon.

So this is the perfect time to put together a “Fussy Free New Mom Gift Basket” to share my mom’s words of wisdom with my friends.

We’ll make sure to include something to keep baby warm, dry, clean, and monitored! Just like my mom always recommended!

So pick up a cute basket. Gender neutral color is perfect. Afterward, the new Mom can use it for organizing in the nursery.

Fill it with a new blanket, socks, diapers (because new moms always need diapers), a cute bear crochet baby hat (pattern near the end), and the amazing VTech VM341-216 Bear 2 Camera Full Color Video Monitor.

Add a cute bow and you are set!

My mom was always impressed with the basic audio-only baby monitor I had with my first babies, because she never had a baby monitor.

Can you image how amazed she would be by the new advances in video baby monitors?

Easy Bear Crochet Baby Hat pattern

First, just check out that adorable teddy bear-shaped camera! Have you seen anything cuter?

It easily blends into any Nursery decor so you don’t end up with an eye sore after spending all the time and energy setting up a beautiful nursery.

It gets even better! The VTech Bear Video Monitor also comes with an additional standard camera that you can use for multiple angles in the nursery or put it in a different part of the home.

Easy Bear Crochet Baby Hat pattern

For me that is a dream come true as Miss Jade is special needs. I can put the 2nd camera in her room so I can keep an eye on her as she plays.

Both cameras feature automatic night vision and full-color video that displays on a large 4.3-inch color LCD screen.

Easy Bear Crochet Baby Hat pattern

You can even purchase more cameras and connect to the VTech Bear Video Monitor for a total of 4 cameras all viewable on the same monitor screen!

With 9 kids, my Mom would have loved my new VTech Bear Video Monitor to keep an eye on us all. And so would any new mom!

The VTech Bear Video Monitor also has a two-way, talk-back intercom, in addition to built-in lullabies and soothing sounds. This means I can talk to Miss Jade in her room without yelling up the stairs. And I can soothe little Rose in her nursery without entering the room making her think it’s time to get up!

Actually, Miss Jade loves the Two-way, talk back intercom almost more than I do. She will sit in her room and talk to me through the VTech Bear Video Monitor. She now won’t go to sleep unless I tell her goodnight through the talk back feature. Haha! Silly girl.

The VTech Bear Video Monitor is available exclusively at Babies R Us in-store and online. You can learn more about the VTech Bear Video Monitor on VTech’s website. You can also find more amazing VTech products for baby on their social channels

Now when you are gifting this awesome VTech Bear Video Monitor to a new Mom, you could pair it with any baby hat. But why not make it extra special? Like our cute Teddy Bear Crochet baby hat to match?

Our crochet baby hat is simple enough for beginner crocheters. And can be crafted in a single day. Anyone can use the pattern text, but we’ve also included step by step instruction video and photos for the left-handed crocheter.

Because, well, I’m left-handed. There’s just not enough of us in the world. The right handed crocheters get all the good patterns. It’s pretty hard for a left-handed crocheter to flip, so I’m making it easy for you all.

Easy Bear Crochet Baby Hat pattern

But mostly, because I’m left handed, I just can’t do a right handed crochet picture. So….good luck Right Handed Crocheters. Just follow the text and you’ll do great.

  • G hook
  • 2 Skeins (different colors) 4ply (Worsted weight yarn) Soft Low-pill fiber

**Tip: When selecting your yarn, you want to select a soft yarn. This is going on baby’s tender head after all. It is also important to pick a yarn that doesn’t pill or fuzz easily. I literally went through the craft store touching each line of yarn to find one that is soft and then read to ensure it was low-pill on the label.

Braided Strings.
