Beanies, Hats & Caps at Greenpicks

Beanies, hats and caps shelter baby's head

Newborns should wear a bonnet at any time of the year for the first 6-12 weeks. The beanie prevents heat loss, because babies cool down strongly by the head or must be protected from strong sunlight. The headwear is not only decorative accessories, but beanies, hats and caps shelter the baby's head. At Greenpicks, the variety of organic caps for babies meets all practical and ecological requirements. Therewith the little ones are well protected in all weather, there is a large selection of models and designs.

Only the best for the sensitive baby skin

Especially recommended is a cotton cap for newborns and babies, as it protects head and ears. Because of the sensitive skin and possible allergenic ingredients, materials in organic quality should be preferred. This includes cotton from certified organic farming and organic wool from certified organic species-appropriate husbandry. Organic seals such as Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), NATURTEXTIL IVN certified BEST, OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 and Fairtrade certify the organic raw materials according to different criteria. Generally speaking, all test seals pay attention to toxic pollutants, but to different characteristics. Far-reaching certifications take into account not only harmless organic quality but also social and fair aspects.

Summer beanies for babies

The classic among baby caps is the simple beanie. It is usually cut round so that it fits ideally to the head. Cuffs, that can be rolled up, extend the wearing time – quasi the cap grows with. In cold temperatures warms a baby beanie made of organic wool, lined with organic cotton fleece. A baby cap made of soft jersey shelters the little head in light spring wind and in the warmer season from drafts.

A sunhat with UV protection for older babies and toddlers effectively protects against sun exposure. The protection of ultraviolet radiation arises from the special weave of recycled materials (such as fishing nets). Baby caps for the summer should have a shield, earflaps, extra long neck protection, UV protection or a wide brim. They shelter unprotected areas above the head from flush and UVA and UVB rays. Breathable organic cotton allows a pleasant air circulation, so that the offspring is not only optimally protected, but also keeps a cool head. Plain models and striped and patterned baby hats leave nothing to be desired and can be combined with existing baby fashion.

Practical are beanies and hats with ties. They hold the headgear in place, which is very convenient for restless babies or gusty winds. Even for the little ones, there are already cool caps, which not only look trendy, but equipped with earflaps or neck protection also serve as protection against sun and wind. Headscarves, shawls or baseball caps for babies and toddlers are available in numerous designs and fulfill practical, aesthetic and ecological wishes.

Baby hats for the winter

Even though babies are more likely to attend a snowball fight than to actively participate, they enjoy watching the trickling snow. In addition to warm clothing, a snowsuit and a knitted hat made of organic wool are part of the all-round protection for babies in winter. Soft and warm are models with organic cotton fleece lining – it does not scratch. Warm wool as upper (certified organic wool) as well as scarf and gloves complete the right choice. Cotton and wool in organic quality provide skin-friendly wearing comfort. Allergy-causing factors for the sensitive baby skin are thus significantly reduced. The material combination of organic cotton and wool has a temperature-balancing effect and ensures effective transport of moisture. Thus, the little ones are optimally protected from the cold during a ride through the winter landscape. A baby sleeping bag additionally keeps the little body warm.

Baby beanies made to measure

Whether baby beanie, hat, baseball cap or peaked cap – every headwear for babies should be adapted to the ambient temperature and fit perfectly. A cap that slips does not fulfill the protective purpose nor is it comfortable for the baby. The size depends on head circumference in centimeters. Find the circumference of your baby's head by putting a measuring tape on his forehead and put it over the ears once around the head. Additional information such as age in months is for guidance.

Skin-friendly natural fibers to protect the sensitive scalp

As long as you have your baby close to the body, thus often immediately after birth, when breastfeeding, usually no bonnet is necessary. However, if the environment and the climate change, a cap can make sense. Listen to your mother instinct. Keep in mind that babies have a different sensibility of heat than adults. General recommendations are not necessarily valid for every baby. After all, the culture and the country in which it is born also play an important role. While toddlers in summer in Mongolia are only found in short-sleeved romper suits, parents in Central Europe would probably dress their baby a little warmer under the same conditions. But a general advice is always: beanies, caps and hats for babies should be soft, skin-friendly and harmless. Babies have sensitive skin – headgear of natural fibre and without seams do not scrub. And exactly these organic baby beanies can be found online at Greenpicks.
