This is the second time I have purchased this hat!
First time as a newborn (0-6 months) and now that he has outgrown that one I bought the next size up! (6-18 months)
The great thing about this hat is that it is entirely adjustable sizewise so it will really last! There is a pull tab type thing in the back that you can make it tighter or looser in their head as they grow and always get the right fit.

The back flap protects their neck and back from the sun. Which are common sunburn areas.

The front flap (bill of the hat) does not get in their eyes like a lot of baby hats so baby can actually see!

The material is nice and lightweight and airy so baby won't be super hot in this hat.

I highly recommend it!
His go-to Summer hat

Bought this for my 2 month old for the beach in the 9-18 month size because it's adjustable and I wanted him to be able to use his for months to come, and am so glad I did! He does have a large head but the hat still fits him perfectly when drawstring is pulled, is super cute and protects his head, face and neck from the sun. Washes well also and is easy to fold up and take with us everywhere.

Did not stay on my 15 month old, but she hates hats. She was able to pull it right off even when we tightened the back and had it snug under her chin.

This hat is absolutely wonderful!! We have had it for over two years and I just lost it! We were packing for a beach trip and realized I didn't have it! Thank goodness for PRIME shipping!

Our first hat was purchased larger, 2T/3T- back when our son was about 12 months old. The little string clasp in the back works AMAZING at securing it on your child's head and finding the right fit. It was so nice not worrying about sun getting the back of his neck or his little face while playing in the pool, at the beach, or on the lake. He wore it on speed boats, jumped in pools and all kinds of boy wear and tear and this little hat held up while keeping him protected. Love it! We have gotten so many compliments on it's full coverage and practicality- plus what a great price! So happy to have it again for my now almost 3 year old. Love this product x100!

I loved the color and hat but it did not not fit my daughter well. It runs small and doesn’t really have a shape to it.
that she doesn't like to wear hats

My one year old decided, just as the warm weather started, that she doesn't like to wear hats. She also hates sunglasses, but this stubborn mother was not going to let her baby roam around without eye/head protection! We bought this without having high hopes since she pulled the velcro off other hats also--we've had a chance to try it twice and are pleased to report success! She has a large head so I ordered a larger size for her--there's a twist tie that I can tighten as soon as we get it on her, and it serves as barrier one to her removing it. Barrier two is the strap that we tie underneath her skin. It definitely feels waterproof, though we haven't tested that part yet, and she's comfortable and happy in it, which means she wears it, which means mom's happy. Definitely recommend it, and will likely order more in other colors!
Great fit, weight and coverage

We purchased this hat for our 5 month old daughter. Her head size is in the 75% on the growth chart and this fits with room to grow but not too floppy.

The coverage from the sun is good and the weight of the fabric is also light and didn't make her too sweaty.

The strings to tighten the hat were also long enough as well.

Overall this is a great hat and a decent value.
I would order this again if we needed another.
HIGHLY Recommend for infants/toddlers in the sun!!!

Perfection in and out of the water! Bought two for a week long trip to Florida for my fair skin 1 year old. It stayed on his head perfectly to protect from the sun and his few times of fighting to take it off. It held up well with dunking in the pool and dries very quickly. Protected his neck and shoulders well too. I HIGHLY recommend this in combination with sunscreen for great sun protection!

Washes very well in the washer or by hand (I did this after our days at the beach).
Good full coverage for 1 year old, but can get a bit sweaty in hot weather. Take time to adjust your child to wearing it.

This had works great, it offers nice full protection of the head with a fairly large front visor. We adjusted our one year old daughter to this gradually over the course of 3-4 months, because she would try to take it off at first, but with persistence, your child will get used to it. Just don't give in, you may have to put it back on then several times during the course of a stroller walk around the neighborhood for several days.Pulling the front visor back to start helps the adjustment process.

My only beef with the product is that it doesn't breathe, so on very hot days my daughter's head gets sweaty and she really doesn't like it. Also, I think the string that tightens the hat in the back may be stretching a bit as I have to keep tightening it further and further each time she puts it on. It's also not the most attractive look, if that's important to you, but to me, protection from the sun wins out over fashion sense every time.
Disappointed in smallness of it.

Bought this for my 21month old son. It's definitely on the small side for him but I wanted the neck protection feature that you can't necessarily get from simple ball caps. The strings are sewn on tightly so there's no risk of fraying or tugging off. The tightening ability on the back is quite frankly a joke though so don't expect to be able to tighten it to fit snugly. All it does is push the cap up on the head which makes it easier to fall off. So we just leave it loose and tie the chin strap and no trouble. The bill is a bit awkward as it seems too short to actually keep the sun out of his eyes but it's too long to let him see with ease and not having to push it up on his forehead so I don't really know what to say about that. We only use it in extreme sun exposure so we just deal with it and are constantly adjusting it for him. Overall, disappointed in size but like the neck protection. Also the material is lightweight and waterproof (like if you are at the beach, for instance).
