As most parents know, keeping a sun hat on your little ones head can sometimes be a challenge as they seem to love pulling them off, but choosing one which is comfortable and will also protect them from the sun at the same time will help make those days out in the sunshine all the more easier.
We’ve searched the market and have found some of the best (and cutest!) baby sun hats around!
Let’s get going!
What to consider when buying a baby sun hat
Baby sun hats not only look very cute, but they also protect your baby from the sun. Look for a wide brimmed hat or neck flap to help protect their delicate face, ears and neck. Choose a hat that is made of UV protection material and it is also a good idea to get one with a neck strap, which you can tie or fasten with velcro and help keep it on your little ones head.
