During the cooler fall and winter months, you’ll almost always see babies wearing adorable hats. But infant hats are so much more than just an adorable accessory - there’s a good reason people are constantly putting hats on babies!
Turns out, babies actually need hats, and not just when it’s freezing outside. Babies need hats more than older children or grown adults because of their head size in proportion to their body size. Babies’ heads are much larger compared to the rest of the body, which causes more heat to transfer. Infant hats can prevent too much heat from leaving your little one’s body. Chances are, if you can feel a chill in the air, your baby can benefit from wearing a hat!
Babies don’t regulate their body temperature as efficiently as children and adults.
How can you tell if your baby is cold, if you aren’t cold? First, check your baby’s extremities (hands, fingers, feet, and ears) to see if they are cold to the touch. Second, pay attention to your baby’s cues. Is your baby particularly fussy, even though she’s not hungry, wet, or tired? She might be cold. Is your baby suddenly very still or quiet? This sudden change in behavior might mean he’s too cold.
Tip: As a general rule of thumb, dress your baby in one more layer than you are wearing. For example, if you’re wearing a short sleeved shirt and jeans, dress your baby in pants and a long sleeved shirt. If you’re wearing a sweater, dress your baby in a onesie, a sweatshirt, pants, and warm socks. Don’t forget a hat!
