I feel like fall is already almost over here. There are still leaves on the ground and it’s beautiful, but it’s FREEZING. With freezing weather comes the need for warm snuggly clothes and accessories, especially for tiny babes. So today for favorite shop Friday we’re talking about our favorite hat shop!
The HUSH Hat. It’s literally a one of a kind sound absorbing infant hat, we’re obsessed with it and use it all the time for Blake, even when it’s not cold. It was created to soften sounds that constantly wake sleeping babies, uh every parents dream right?! It is perfect for nap time use at home, running errands, going to dinner, sporting events, firework shows…really anywhere you want your baby to sleep more soundly or feel the noise level could get too loud. As I learned with Blake, little babes need a little time to adjust to sounds, so this was perfect! Plus it’s warm and cozy. We’ve used it from day one with Blake!
Today they’re offering y’all 20% off with the code, “OAKES20”, here. (You’re welcome.)
Plus, make sure you’re on Insta because we’re giving away TWO HUSH hats over there! One for you and one for your bestie!
Now, we’re totally obsessed with this product so we had to learn more about the gal behind the brand, Jaycee! So we interviewed her and here’s what we learned:
Q: What’s your favorite thing about running your shop?
A: By far my favorite thing is hearing the responses from moms, it is overwhelmingly positive. They LOVE their HUSH Hats. Especially a mom that has been struggling with a sensitive sleeper. To hear the difference in nap time and over all happiness of the baby is the best feeling. I started this company to help moms. So to see that happening is my greatest accomplishment.
Q: How did you choose the name for your shop?
A: When trying to come up with a name for the product and the company HUSH kept popping in my head. It’s in baby songs, I said it to my toddler a million times a day. So HUSH Baby became the name of the company, and HUSH Hat the product. We always knew we would eventually branch out into other products so we liked the idea of a common word HUSH to be in everything.
Q: What makes your shop unique?
A: The HUSH Hat is a one of a kind hat. There are the traditional methods to help your baby sleep, like running white noise machines, which is actually damaging to their hearing, but nothing like the HUSH Hat. It is soft, comfortable, functional, and most importantly it works!
Q: Now tell us something random about you!
A: I am overly obsessed with my bulldog Iko.
Q: What’s one beauty product you can’t live without?
A: False Lashes!!
Q: What’s your best advice to running your own business?
A: Find something you love, it takes more work than I could have ever imagined. If you aren’t in love with your business it won’t be near as worth it in the end.
Q: Finally, tell us about you!
A: My name is Jaycee, I’m a single mom. When my daughter was born she was very sensitive to sound. Everything woke her up, especially her older brother! I couldn’t find anything to help me so I came up with the HUSH Hat. Over the years I have gone through a lot of personal difficulty. I went through a very hard divorce, and was thrown into the role of breadwinner for the family. There were long periods of time I wasn’t able to give HUSH Baby the funding I knew it needed, but I always kept working. Everyday I did something. The stars finally aligned and my best friend on Earth was in a place in her life to partner up. Her and her husband decided in order to really get this going I needed to move to AZ and live with them. So I could focus on HUSH Baby full time. So I packed up, left UT and moved in with my best friend and her family. It was CRAZY we had 4 girls under 5, it got hectic. It was not easy, but we made this huge sacrifice for HUSH Baby. And it was worth it. Were closer as friends, and have a product we love. Through the darkest times HUSH Baby was my light. It means more to me than I could really ever express. I’m just thankful to be living my dream!
Is this Mama not amazing? We think she is. Now, go get your hands on a HUSH hat y’all!
