Three reasons my child should wear a hat...

Summer is just around the corner and while we're all enjoying the sunshine and warm weather, it's always super important to remain sun safe. Even more important is getting kids into the good habit of sun safety, so when it comes to slapping on a hat, there are plenty of cute styles out there to choose from, so we thought to cover a few fundamental reasons to keep in mind when choosing the right hat for your little one.

1. Protect your little one’s face and head from sunburn

Wearing a sun-protective hat is a simple and effective strategy for reducing ultraviolet radiation to the face, head, and neck. Shielding precious babies from the elements is priority, you may want to check out our Toshi Flap Cap featuring a contoured neck flap for enhanced sun protection. A head tie creates adjustable sizing, and the chin tie secures the cap. The cap is fully lined for increased comfort. Made from the finest quality cotton knit, the baby sunhat is gentle to wear, functional and practical.

2. Protect your little one’s eyes from the brightness of the sun

Protect your eyes from the brightness of the sun, which can cause sun damage as you age. Help to prevent skin cancers and skin damage. One of the easiest ways to make sure your baby’s eyes are protected from the sun is to make sure they are wearing a hat, and not just any hat but a UV-proof one. Made from material that is designed with extra layers to keep the sun out, a UV-proof that will not only protect your baby’s skin and their eyes.

 

3. Keep babies body temperature even

Babies need hats more than adults because their heads are proportionately bigger compared to their bodies than ours, resulting in more heat transfer, so a hat prevents too much heating or cooling of the baby. A lightweight hat with a brim protects your baby’s head from the sun in warm weather and traps the heat he needs when it’s cool — making it a must-have outdoor accessory in just about any weather. You may want to check out our Toshi Bell Hat Milly, a flattering and feminine bell shaped hat. The sunhat is fully lined for increased comfort.
