Preemie

IV ain’t the Roman numeral 4, but for intravenous access as preemies get their little IVs inserted into their little heads. I know, but it is the best place for it, and it is where they’ll go. I wanted a cap that would allow that, and it ended up with the bonus of needing a button – yay! Something to decorate with, while we’re at it! And this wee little button will go right in the front of the cap, so Baby won’t be lying on it, and tubing won’t snag on it.
The back flap is roomy enough to actually close over the IV insertion, with gaps to allow the tubing somewhere to go, so this functions as an IV cover as well.
I also aimed to eliminate seaming since that’s a no-go with delicate preemie heads.
