Keep it under the hat
The secret is finding the right hat. Children who move around a lot and keep warm don’t need as much on their heads as children who are cold or like to sit still when they play. Watch how your child plays and feel the back of her neck to determine if it’s warm or cold – that will give you an idea of her body temperature.
Autumn and winter
A thinner cap is best, or a balaclava that also covers part of the face, topped with a windproof hat. Then you can take the windproof cap off to ventilate without exposing the head directly to the cold.
If it’s cold, you can also use a neck warmer – a kind of scarf that you pull over your child’s head to protect the chin, neck and upper chest.
If it’s raining, use the hood or a watertight rain hat with a brim that protects both the face and the back of the neck. Great all year round.
Spring and summer
In spring and summer, it’s a good idea to protect your child’s head with a baseball cap, a scarf or a sunhat. A sunhat with a brim usually offers the best protection since it protects both the face and the neck from the sun. Extra protection is available in our special UV protective range.
Infants need to wear a hat year-round outdoors to protect them from cold and sunlight. Choose a thin cotton cap in the summer and a warmer, windproof cap in the winter.
