First baby of the year is from Chan Chen, Corozal

This year’s first newborn at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital is from up north. At eight minutes after three o’clock on January first, Refina Tun of Chan Chen Village in Corozal, gave birth to a baby girl. There were delivery complications but Tun was able to deliver a healthy eight pounds, two ounces bouncing baby. Mother and child travelled back home on Sunday, and if you’re wondering what’s the name of the New Year’s baby, she’s Hayley. The K.H.M.H. staff along with Alma Melendez of Kimberly-Clark Company handed over a gift basket to Tun, filled with newborn products from Huggies. That didn’t include pacifiers or anything related to baby bottles since K.H.M.H., under it’s “baby friendly” status, promotes breastfeeding.
