When my son was born, I received two Hanna Andersson baby caps from a friend. I believe this gift was one of the most valuable gifts I was given! I liked the hats so much I have since bought several more so that my baby can continue to wear them as he grows. I think these caps are a must-have for any baby's wardrobe.
These caps are 100% organic cotton. Though I am by no means a purist when it comes to clothing, my newborn baby felt so pure and delicate that it felt good knowing I was putting something completely natural and chemical-free onto his soft, absorbent baby skin. Newborns also have trouble regulating their body temperature, and when they are cold it is harder for them to gain weight. These hats are wonderful ways to keep them warm when they are newborn, whether your baby is born during the cold winter months, or when every building is cold inside because of air conditioner! Because they are 100% cotton, they will not only help keep your baby warm in the winter but also cool in the summer when you are out in the sun. This is wonderful because the long, sunny days of summer are approaching, and you will want to keep your baby's head covered to avoid sunburn. Hanna Andersson caps are a perfect way to do that, as they also cover the ears. Very few baby hats provide that kind of coverage. Also, as it is spring, flu season is upon us. I like to keep my baby as covered as possible, especially around the ears, because ears provide a hidden place for germs to nest. You can probably guess that we never leave the house without my baby dressed in his Hanna Andersson cap!
But I don't only buy them because I feel strongly that it's the right thing to do. I also love how they look! I think my baby looks super cute in his Hanna Andersson cap, and rarely do we go out that he does not receive a compliment about his hat. There are countless benefits to buying one of the caps, and I highly recommend them to all moms!
