According to Blogger Stats, one of the main reasons people find this blog is because they are searching for baby or infant urns. Incredibly sad. I always say, I hate that you have to be here but I'm glad you are. I decided to do a post on different sites that offer cremain products and some creative ones that I've found. Please feel free in the comment section to add your own choices. Here is a link to our original post on baby urns.
Choosing a cremation product for your child is one of the hardest and most important things you will ever do as a bereaved parent. For most of us it will be the final resting place for our children's ashes. There are so many things to think of. You want something that will reflect your personality, your family and what the child meant to you. Maybe you want to include something that reminds you of your child such as butterflies or rainbows or a cartoon character. Most manufacturers of cremain products understand this and so have huge varieties to offer. You also want to look at how well the product will stand up over time. The quality of the product. Do you want something to bury or keep at home? For me personally I could not stand the thought of being away from my son's ashes. When I first brought him home I slept with the box. I had the idea to just carry them around in my purse but that didn't seem right. I decided on a pendant urn. A pendant urn is a necklace. You fill it with the cremains and then seal it and you wear it. Here is a photo of the one I purchased...
"In the Light Urns."
For some, unfortunately, price is an issue. It was for me. I had to find something I loved for under $200. Almost all manufacturers offer many inexpensive choices. If price is not an issue you can purchase customized urns as well, in almost any imaginable design or material.
Here are some sites I have come across, some may be duplicated from our original post...
