The hat kids forget they're wearing! The Bedhead Legionnaire flap hat style is a great starting point in sun safety for babies and often converts hat-haters into hat-lovers!
And in three slightly different varieties of style, we’re sure there is something for everyone’s needs and tastes. Our Originals legionnaire baby hat is just that: our original design! Made when our founder couldn’t find a newborn size hat for her little outdoorsy baby, she designed one that was super soft, stretchy to accommodate baby’s head growth, and UPF50+. The brand has since expanded to include hats for older kids and adults, as well as Swim and Winter ranges, and our new Heritage 100% linen and reversible styles. At Bedhead Hats, we help parents protect their babies any time they’re in the sun. We offer a range of hat styles, colours, prints, and sizes to meet every need. Every hat is rated UPF50+ excellent protection from the sun.
Our Originals Legionnaire baby hat is ideal as baby’s first hat. Not only is it ultra protective, it gets babies used to having something on their head from an early age, avoiding the hat battle that can happen at the toddler age. For the water babies, our Swim range of beach hats for babies feature the exact same style as our baby legionnaires in the Originals range, just with a quick-dry, chlorine-friendly fabric for long-lasting life. For those who like a more eco-friendly option, our Heritage flap hats are made from 100% organic linen, are fully reversible and adjustable so they will fit baby’s head perfectly and grow with them, offering protection and wear for many months. With a plain colour on one side and a coordinating print on the other, they offer two-in-one style. All legionnaire styles have the back flap that provides additional coverage babies need over their ears and back of neck.
Wearing a baby sun hat during the hot Australian summers is so important. Australian summers are harsh, and a baby’s skin is more delicate than that of adults. Babies and children are more vulnerable to UV radiation and more susceptible to sunburn and skin damage. The UV exposure they receive during the early years of life greatly increases the risk of developing skin cancer as an adult.
As baby grows, our large range of bucket and broadbrim hats continues the same comfortable fit and high protection. For winter, our beanies and fleecy legionnaire hats keep heads warm and kids looking so cute and cosy! And for summer, our range of rash vests are sized from newborns up to teens so you can be sure your family is kept sun safe all year round with Bedhead Hats.
