Toddler Winter Hats
Toddlers need protection from cold weather, especially in the
exposed area of the head and neck. Fortunately, most manufacturers of high quality outdoor wear produce a
wide variety of toddler winter hats and you should be able to find one that is perfect for your
When selecting a winter hat for your toddler, you should keep a few things in mind. The climate your baby will
be living in is the major concern when choosing a hat or winter beanie, because some colder climates call for
thicker, heavier material that possesses more heat retention capability than lighter hats that are best suited
for more temperate climates. It is a fact that the human body loses most of its body heat via the head and neck
region and wearing a hat is a great way to reduce this heat loss and keep your child warm.
Consider how much time your infant or toddler will actually be
exposed to the cold weather. Will he or she be outside for an hour or longer or simply a few minutes in the
car waiting for the heater to warm the interior? Most young children do not spend a lot of time in the cold
and usually do not need hats designed for those who are exposed to the elements for a several hours at a
time. Be careful not to overdress you toddler by putting "too much hat" on his or her head. If you do this
you run the risk of your child overheating and this is a very dangerous situation for young children because
their core heating systems are not yet capable of regulating heat retention and cooling. Overheating can
quickly lead to dangerously high temperatures and potentially, heat stroke, which can be fatal for children
You should measure your child’s head prior to shopping for a
winter hat. It is important that a good portion of his or her head is covered and that
includes the ears. Some hats have ear flaps that can be pulled over the baby’s ears to protect them from the
cold. Winter beanies are a great choice for toddlers as they cover large portions of the head and can be pulled
over the ears to provide a very snug, comfortable fit.
Pay attention to any fastening devices or chin straps that are
included with any winter hat you are considering. While these features help keep the hat or beanie on the
baby’s head, some of them can create chafing on the child’s neck, while others can potentially create a
choking hazard if they are of the string or strap type fastener. Consider how active your child is, how he or
she reacts to hats when they are placed on the head and whether or not a chin strap or other type of fastener
is right for your specific situation.
Winter hats and snow beanies are available in a wide
variety of styles, fabrics and colors and you will easily find one is perfect for your child’s needs. You can
find high quality hats ranging in price from $10-30 and they typically last a very long time if properly
cared for. Toddler winter hats are available wherever outdoor clothing and winter wear
is sold. You can find a wide variety to choose from at local stores as well as by shopping online. If possible,
take your toddler with you so you can actually try various hats on him or her to see if they fit properly. You
might even find some that match perfectly their nice toddler snow
