This Headband is one of my favorites. Keep your baby ears warm with this beautiful and fun headband. My personal touch I have not shared yet with you is revealed in this headband. Interchangeable flowers make this headband fun! It can be matched with just about anything. This headband measures 11 ½ inches long and is mean for a newborn. For a bigger size band, increase the length.
