When it gets colder, moms are supposed to put a thick hat on the baby and it becomes warmer, less thick hats should be offered accordingly.
- The size of a hat should match with the head circumference.
When choosing baby boy caps, parents should choose them by enlarging baby’s head circumference to one or two centimeters, or adding 0.3 centimeters to the diameter of baby’s head. If it is too tight, it might have an influence on the growth of baby’s head.

In the market, there are so many stylish baby hats that look wonderful. However, the cap with brim or fringe is neither practical nor safe for the baby. That is because that kind of hat can affect the baby’s sight. Also, the cap with wool is not good for the baby’s delicate skin, and if it sheds hair, it might be sucked by the baby into the respiratory system, causing the occurrence of disease.
