A hat is not just a cute accessory. They're a necessity in Australia during the hot summer months. Sun safety is important, especially in our harsh summer climate, and Bedhead hats are a great way to protect your child's head from the sun.
Bedhead Hats are an Australian brand that gives complete sun protection with their SPF50+ sun safety rating.
They're made from super lightweight sustainable linen, so children won't even be aware that they're wearing a hat! Linen is soft and breathable, and this wonderful natural fibre is both cool in summer and warm in winter.
Bed Heads Hats are all Oeko-Tex certified, so if baby chews on the chin strap, you know that there are no nasty chemicals lurking in the fabric.
We love Bedheads, not just for their beautiful range of kids hats, but also for their dedication to ethical manufacturing and sustainable business practices.
Natural, sustainable linen
The Bedheads Heritage range of hats that we stock at Hello Charlie are made from 100% linen. Linen is biodegradable, recyclable, antibacterial and hypoallergenic.
Grown from flax which requires no pesticides to grow, linen is a safe, natural and durable fabric. Linen uses less water to grow than cotton and requires less chemical processing than bamboo. It's a healthy and environmentally friendly choice for your family.
Bedheads Hats uses Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified fabric, which is processed without toxic dyes or finishes.
Fabric is tested in accordance with Australia & New Zealand Standards (AS/NZS4399)- re: UPF testing by ARPANSA (Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency.)
Baby hats are important (not just cute!)
Baby sun hats look super cute, but it's not just about looks.
A baby's head is especially prone to the sun's rays, which can cause sunburn. Sun exposure can also lead to skin cancer down the road. That's why it's important to protect your baby's head by putting a hat on them when you're out about about.
A baby hat is not just for sun protection, it can also keep baby warm on cool days. In fact, babies lose heat through their heads more easily than adults do, so it's especially important to keep their heads covered when it's cold outside.
It's never too early to start sun protection. By starting with a kids sun hat that they'll actually want to wear you can start good habits every time you're out and about.
Legionnaire hats for baby
For infants with their delicate skin, you need something that gives plenty of protection from the sun and shades their head and neck.
With a Bedhead legionnaires hat, baby is sorted. The wide brim and sun flap at the back offers the greatest protection from the sun. With a flap hat, baby's neck is covered and so is their face.
The anti flop brim stops the hat from flopping down over your child's eyes.
The Bedhead hat design works for all babies, too. The adjustable chin strap keeps hats on little heads, and the adjustable head size means that you can get the perfect fit. Unlike most hats, parents can easily remove the hat, but little ones can't!
All hats come in gorgeous reversible patterns, so it's like having two hats in one. Styles are suitable for boys, girls and gender neutral.
The super cute legionnaire hat for kids comes in infant and toddler sizes, too.
Bucket Hat - The Best Kids Sun Hat
It's no wonder that bucket hats for kids and toddlers are so popular. The soft flexible brim covers the face and shields the eyes from glare. Elasticated straps tie under the chin, so these kids hats stay on even the most active kids.
It's the overall hat design and attention to detail that makes Bed Head hats so great. There's a thin corded edge to the brim that keeps it from flopping down and can be gently shaped. We love that there's even a hidden name tag for identification - perfect for kindy or daycare!
While a good quality hat will give excellent protection from the sun, it's important to remember that you need a range of strategies - slip, slop, slap, seek and slide.
- Slip on a shirt (or other protective clothing)
- Slop on some sunscreen
- Slap on a hat (a Bedheads hat!)
- Seek shade
- Slide on some sunnies
