Hi, we are Yvonne and DaRai owners of Kraddle Kare®. Our story began to evolve back in 2001. I’ll never forget. Our family was excited about the birth of my baby cousin. He was born on a Friday morning in March. Everyone was instantly love.
He was welcomed home by family and bonding with his mother was well on the way. Unexpectedly his mother fell ill and passed way that very next Friday only spending one week caring for her newborn baby boy.
My mother (Yvonne) selflessly helped out her brother by taking in her nephew and raised him. He was born with a head full of the prettiest curly hair you’d ever seen but somehow over the period of a few months he ended up with a very common BALD SPOT on the back of his head.
Fast forward about 13 years to my first pregnancy with my baby girl Raiya. My doctor already assured me that she would be born with a full head of hair upon several physical exams.
All I could think about was my cousin’s bald spot and I instantly became obsessed with wanting to protect my daughter’s hair from the common infant balding. After months of research and learning the exact cause of infant balding (non-medical), we went on a shopping frenzy to find the perfect product. We soon discovered that there was not a product available to meet our needs and therefore, the Kraddle Kap satin bonnet was created.
What We Believe?
We believe a happy, healthy mommy will raise a happy, healthy baby. We absolutely LOVE everything about babies and their well-being and our mission is to help educate parents by sharing our experience and encouraging new mothers through their parenting journey with our videos, tips, and tricks, and much more.
The Kraddle Kap
We founded the Kraddle Kap because we wanted every mother to know that your baby does NOT have to have a bald patch in their head. This common infant balding is caused by the friction of cotton fabrics rubbing against baby’s delicate hair. It was important for us to design a bonnet specific to babies for safety while allowing proper hair protection.
