Question about Sunday Afternoon Sun Protection Hats for Children

Q: "I usually wear a baseball cap to keep the sun out of my eyes and wear sunscreen. My children ages 2 to 6 dislike having sunscreen applied to their faces and won't wear sunglasses for more than a few minutes at a time. They are quite active physically so most hats won't stay on. What are the odds that they'd wear the Sunday Afternoon Sun Hats? How do they stay on?" Thanks. Matt

Answer: First, please consider a Sunday Afternoon adventurer hat for yourself as your ears, neck and most of your face remain exposed with a baseball cap. When you don't need the neck protection, you can use the velcro to pull it off your neck onto the hat. It is great to not have to worry about sunscreen.  

Next, take a look at the baby and child size hats on our website. We chose the most popular colors Sunday Afternoons offers in the bucket hat and the adventurer hats. These hats are almost featherweight and are quite comfortable to wear. For example, the baby hats and child sized hats are most popular in pink and in royal blue

Sun Hat features vary according to whether the hats are made for infants, babies or children:

* To reduce the risk of injury, the infant, baby and child sizes have a breakaway fabric chinstrap with a velcro closure for easy on and off plus a small buckle that adjusts for chin strap length.
* Infant and baby sized hats are solid fabric so as to prevent UV exposure on potentially bald baby heads.
* Child and youth hats have mesh sides for better ventilation.

Note that we don't sell the infant hats. Most infants are protected by stroller or baby carriage canopies and rarely exposed to direct sunlight. Currently, the demand for the sunhats for infants is close to zero because of that.

Thanks for your question.

Sincerely, Barbara.
