Central Florida’s first baby of the New Year was born at 12:23 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 1, at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies. Baby Olivia weighed 7 pounds, 6 ounces and measured 18 inches in length.

To mark the occasion, the Central Florida Diaper Bank is donating diapers for one year — that’s about 3,600 diapers — to Olivia’s family.

The organization advocates for and encourages healthy growth, nutrition and development for children from newborn to age three, promoting self-sufficiency for at-risk families by identifying their needs and providing the appropriate resources.

“We are thankful for the opportunity to partner with Orlando Health for the second year to provide diapers for a year to a family in our community and help give their baby a healthy start," said Sharon Lyles, diaper bank executive director.
