All year long volunteers have been busy knitting thousands of tiny purple hats they hope will save babies’ lives. Seattle Children’s collected 3,600 hats and distributed them this month to hospitals throughout the state to prevent child abuse by reminding parents crying is normal. The project is part of the Period of PURPLE Crying, a training program for parents created by the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome after abusive, head-trauma injuries skyrocketed in 2008.
