The hat kids forget they're wearing! The Bedhead Legionnaire Hat is a great starting point in sun safety for babies and often converts hat-haters into hat-lovers!
From the time you bring your baby home from the hospital, you make choices you hope will keep them safe and healthy. Everything you do early in your little one’s life will influence their choices later in life. Which is why introducing baby hats at this young age is so important.
Babies wear caps and beanies in winter to keep them warm in the cool weather. But wearing a baby sun hat during the hot Australian summers is even more 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.
The importance of wearing baby sun hats in Australia couldn’t be greater. 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. Styles like our Legionnaire hats have a flap that provides the additional coverage babies need over their ears and on the back of the neck.
Hat styles like our legionnaire, flap hats, and bucket hats are made of lightweight, stretchy cotton that breathes. The comfortable fit and the cooling effect of the cotton helps kids forget they even have them on, which means you can be confident their delicate skin is protected.
Our beach hats are made from polyester elastane nylon that is chlorine friendly and pool safe. We recommend wearing these hats for swimming and opting for a cotton hat for everyday wear. For optimal sun protection at the beach, consider adding one of our rash vests. We also carry wet bags in the same fun prints as our swim baby hats.
Protecting your baby from the harmful damage caused by the sun isn’t an option, it’s a necessity. Shop Bedhead Hats for the best collection of baby sun hats in Australia.
