The role of children wearing hats is to keep warm in winter and heatstroke in summer, and choose good styles as beautiful decorations.
How to choose a hat for your child
Choice of hats and knowledge of how to wear them
Children’s skulls are constantly growing, so choose a slightly wider hat. Size reference: baby cap is 42 ~ 48 cm, child cap is 50 ~ 55 cm.
According to different seasons, choose hats of different colors and styles. Dark colors can absorb light to increase warmth, and light colors can reflect light to increase coolness. In this way, you should choose a dark woolen child hat that has good thermal insulation and can cover your ears in winter, and a light-colored summer hat that is cool in the wind in summer. Children going to school should wear yellow hats. Yellow has a strong stimulus to vision and can prevent car accidents.
The purpose of wearing a hat is to protect against wind, sand, and strong sunlight, and sometimes to prevent rain. Therefore, you do not need to wear a hat indoors, and choose a suitable hat according to the climate when going out.
There are many types of hats, which can be divided into winter hats, summer hats, spring and autumn hats according to the season, and baby hats and boys’ hats according to the age of the child.
Buying hats should be easy due to the season
In winter, the climate is cold, so you should choose a hat that has good warmth and cold resistance, such as cotton hats, leather hats, fleece hats, etc. In very cold seasons, choose a hat that can protect your cheeks and ears.
Spring and autumn can choose knitted hats, wool knitted hats, big caps and so on.
The summer sun is strong and irritating to the eyes. You can choose a large brim hat with light fabric, cold color, and lightness, such as sun hats, straw hats, and various travel hats. These hats can reflect the sun and lower the head Part of the heat, but also shading and eye protection, ventilation and heatstroke.
Hats are easy to change with age
The baby’s small head has a delicate skin and poor adaptability to climate change. It is necessary to choose a hat that is light in texture, soft to the touch, and warm and breathable; if the hat is too heavy and too hard, it will not only be uncomfortable for the baby, but also bad for the development of brain nerves. It is best to choose a baby hat without a brim, so that it is easy for the mother to hold and breastfeed, while sleeping in the cradle and bed and seeing the surroundings.
The size of the hat should be suitable for the head circumference. Generally, it is advisable to enlarge the head circumference by 1 cm (or the diameter of the head circumference by 0.3 cm); the purpose of proper size reduction is to prevent the hat from being too tight, which is not good for the child’s head development. It also prevents wearing after the cap ring shrinks. Baby caps are 42 ~ 48 cm, and children’s caps are 50 ~ 55 cm.
Hat color should be bright
It’s not just about beauty. Children have a large amount of activity and a poor sense of security when playing. Wearing a brightly colored hat is more eye-catching and can reduce accidents to a certain extent.
Although the hat can be worn in all seasons, it is not necessary for children to wear hats as soon as they go out. In the sky, sunlight can provide valuable nutrition for children. The sunlight can turn T-dehydrocholesterol in the skin into vitamin D, which is very important to prevent the occurrence of rickets. In addition, sunlight has a strong bactericidal effect. Disinfection, more exposure of children to sunlight can improve disease resistance and prevent infectious diseases. If a baby wears a hat as soon as he goes outdoors, there will be less exposure to sunlight. Therefore, wearing a hat depends on time and weather.
