Protect the Potential

Protect the Potential

Bedhead hats is an Australian based company with a core value of making the most protective and comfortable sun hats for babies & children. We believe every child should have the opportunity to grow up healthy and safe. We established ‘Protect the Potential’ to provide less fortunate babies of Australia with the ‘first step’ in living a sun-safe life.

The Problem

Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world.* Not everyone realises that sun exposure in the first 10 years of life plays a large part in determining your lifetime potential for skin cancer.^

The good news? We’re here to help. Learn why babies should start sun-safety early >

The Solution

Bedhead Hats is committed to helping parents instill sun safety habits in children at a young age. We provide families with the most comfortable, high quality protective hats on the market, protecting children from the harsh effects of the strong Australian sun and giving parents the tools to get babies comfortable wearing hats from birth.

But you know that already - you’re here right! Check out which style hat is most suited to your childs development >

Sadly for some mums and babies, their everyday needs are far greater than sun-safety.
That’s where you and Bedhead can make a difference!

‘Protect the Potential’ is our response to this need in aiding those less fortunate than ourselves. This Spring we are committed to give $100,000 of sun hats to babies needing them the most. When you buy hats for your family - your purchase will protect another little one in need & be the start of their sun-safety journey. 

How it works

That’s the easy part! Place your order (small or large – it doesn’t matter) online at Before checking out you will be prompted to either GIFT or DONATE.


Know someone in need? A friend doing it tough, a family member down on their luck or a stranger that may need a hand up. We trust you and your big heart to GIFT a newborn hat on our behalf (thanks a million!)

Our charitable partners listed below will DONATE the newborn hat (along with other goodies) to a new Mum and bub in need. Your purchase will help those doing it tough (and you didn’t even need to leave your seat!)
