Why does your baby need a sun hat?
- A baby’s skin is thinner and therefore more sensitive which means it will burn more easily.
- Sunburn in babies and children is a key risk factor in melanoma, the most dangerous type of skin cancer.
- The sun’s harmful UV rays can damage the eyes, contributing to cataracts and other eye diseases.
You can protect your baby by using a wide-brimmed hat that will protect your baby’s scalp, ears, face, eyes, and neck. Our sun hats and brim hats are made of lightweight nylon with a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) of 30+.

How to keep a hat on your baby/kid?
Does your baby keep pulling the hat off or simply seem uncomfortable in their new hat? Here’s a few tips to help your little one ease into becoming a Little Sun Hat lover:
1. Let your baby feel that wearing hat is a natural thing to do.
Introducing headwear early in your baby’s life will help him/her to adjust into a life long hat lover. Start with soft caps and bonnets, and switch into sun hats. Encourage your baby by telling them they look cute in it.
2. Choose a hat with chin straps. Straps help to keep the headwear securely on your baby’s head and deter them from tugging or pulling the hat off.
3. Be persistent. Put the hat back on when he/she pull it off. Divert their attentions by enticing them with a toy as you put the hat back on them.
