3 Pro Tips for Keeping Your Toddlers’ Hat On


Have you ever been walking along, only to stumble across an abandoned toddler’s hat in the snow? It’s unlikely that it has been raining baby hats. Chances are, you’ve stumbled across the site of a tiny battle!

It might even be a battle that you’ve fought yourself! Keeping infant beanies on tiny heads is a struggle for even the most caring parent. How on earth are you supposed to keep your baby’s ears warm? 

Well, today is the day you learn how to win the battle and emerge triumphantly! Hats for toddlers belong on toddler heads, and we’re here to teach you three tips that can help keep them there! Keep reading and pretty soon toddler hats won’t stand a chance! 

Tip #1: Offer Choice

As soon as toddlers learn to say “no,” they become very opinionated little people! The truth is that children don’t get to make a lot of choices in their lives. We carry them from place to place and don’t always offer a lot of opportunities for agency. 

When you offer a toddler the choice between two hats, they are suddenly filled with a sense of power. When the hat is their choice, they become a lot more excited about putting it on! 

Instead of asking “Would you like to wear a hat?” try asking “Would you like to wear the green hat or the blue hat?” That eliminates the option to say no and throw a tantrum! 

Tip #2: Make It Comfy!

The problem with putting hats on infants is that they can’t tell us why they don’t want to wear them. All they can do is cry! That’s why it’s important to put comfort first when choosing hats for our infants. 

Just because your collection of infant hats is adorable doesn’t mean they’re comfortable! Always make sure that any hat you put on your child fits well. If a hat cuts into their delicate skin, they’re going to want to take it off!

The same goes for choosing the hat’s material. If it’s itchy or contains hidden tags, infants and toddlers will fuss. If you wouldn’t want to wear it, why would your baby? 

There are all kinds of solutions like this one, and you can read more here. 

Tip #3: Wear One, Too!

This may seem obvious, but if you want to convince your little one to do something, do it yourself! If your toddler sees you putting on a hat, they will be more likely to do it, too.

You can even model thinking out loud when you put yours on. You might say “I know my ears will be cold when I go outside, so I will wear my hat to keep them warm!” This helps your child understand that you’re not trying to torture them! 

Don’t Battle With Your Toddler’s Hat

First, your baby is crying because their ears are cold. Next, they’re crying because you’ve put on their hat. With these tips, you will defy the odds and your toddler’s hat is sure to stay put! 

Why don’t you stay put, too? Check out the rest of the blog for more posts that can help you solve every little problem that comes your way!
