Checklist for sun hats for kids

Then you need a sun hat for your child
  • A sun hat protects your child from UV rays – that’s clear. But at what point does it really make sense to wear a sun hat?
  • Sun does not have to be avoided per se, but too many UV rays can be dangerous (especially for babies and children, because their skin is thinner).
  • Your child should wear a sun hat when:
  • Your child plays in the blazing sun
  • Your child starts to sweat
  • Your child finds the light of the sun too bright
This is why a sun hat for children is important
  • The most important thing about a sun hat for kids is the UV protection.
  • Most sun hats offer a sun protection factor of UPF 50+. The UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) indicates the sun protection of the clothing
  • Thus, the head is protected from overheating and sunburn.
  • Overheating can lead to dizziness or nausea.
  • With a sun hat you make sure that head, face and also the neck of your child are protected.
Material and size
  • Sun hats should be made of lightweight material to avoid sweating and still guarantee sun protection
  • Straw hat: Provides extra protection from the sun due to the wide brim and is very permeable to air.
  • Cotton cloth hat: Is very comfortable to wear, but can hardly protect the eyes and face because of the lack of brim.
  • Tip: Look for a sun hat with a neck guard. This is where most sunburns happen to children
  • There are different sizes so you can choose the hat to fit the child’s head size. Many parents find a hat with an elastic band handy because it adjusts to the child’s head.
Other sun protection for children:
  • There are other ways you can protect your child from too much sun:
  • Sunscreen
  • Swimwear with UV protection
  • Sunglasses
