Looking for something a little different in the hat department for your baby or toddler? Our Heritage baby bonnets might be the answer! Yesteryear style with modern flavour, our baby sun bonnets will protect little faces from the sun, keep newborn heads warm on cooler days, and frame those adorable faces too! What’s more, our bonnets for babies and toddlers are made from 100% organic linen fabric, and are fully reversible giving you two hats for the price of one, with a beautiful plain colour on one side and a coordinating print on the other.

Choose from our classic Sun Bonnet style or our newer Ruffled Bonnet style with a little extra flair around the face. Both styles have stretchy linen chin ties that tie up so hats stay in place and are perfect for spring and summer days. In winter, our Wool Bonnets are your cosier alternative. Made from a reversible wool fleece they’re a warmer and snugger version of our baby sun bonnets!

Wearing a hat – or baby bonnet – daily is essential in Australia, where the UV factor is only ever low enough to not do damage for approximately one month of the year. Not only that, wearing a hat as early as possible will mean your child grows up a happy hat wearer! By wearing our lightweight, comfortable sun bonnet hats from birth when they can’t move their little hands, babies will just become accustomed to something on their head so by the time they’re on the move, those hats will stay put because it’s become as normal to them as wearing a nappy!

Bedhead has a huge range of sizes to ensure there is a stylish sun protection option for all ages and seasons. Our baby sun bonnets are ideal for newborns up to around three years old.

If you prefer a more traditional sun hat style, you might love our baby legionnaire hats. We have styles to suit every occasion and every season. In winter, caps, beanies or hats are needed to keep baby and toddler’s head warm to stop the heat from escaping through their heads. In summer, babies need to wear a hat every day to decrease the risk of developing skin cancer as an adult, something we don’t wish on anyone, having experienced it ourselves. Try our Originals baby legionnaire or toddler bucket styles for everyday wear, our Swim legionnaire and rash vests for waterplay, and our Heritage linen flap hats if you love a more muted look to your patterns and colours. In winter, our cosy beanies, mittens and booties will take the cuteness to a whole other level.
