We know how important it is to keep babies warm and cozy during the winter months - especially when their little head is involved. Whether you are looking for headwear that your newborn can wear on the way home from the hospital or this is your child’s first winter season, baby bonnets are a great way to keep them snug.
Below, we will discuss the best baby bonnets and newborn hats that parents should have as part of their baby’s winter closet.
What Are the Benefits of a Baby Bonnet
Baby bonnets are more than just adorable accessories for your little one (although can we take a moment to appreciate how cute they are). This type of newborn baby hat has been used for decades and is versatile enough to go with any of your baby’s outfits.
One of the most noticeable benefits of baby hats and bonnets is the fact that they provide warmth and cushioning. The skin on your baby’s head is so sensitive in the first few months of their lives that it needs to be protected from all harsh weather conditions (e.g. snow and rain), making it a must in Canada.
Similar to how we protect our heads during colder temperatures, a baby bonnet will help to regulate your baby’s temperature when you are going on family winter adventures. Additionally, all baby bonnets are designed with a ribbon or string that ties at the chin. This will ensure that the bonnet doesn’t slip or fall off during any activities.
These accessories are adjustable and provide a comfortable fit for your baby’s head. Remember parents, make sure that you don’t tie the baby bonnet too tight or too loose. It should be snug enough on your child’s head while also giving them freedom of movement.
