He’s not quite old enough for sunscreen, and I’d rather avoid slathering him in it when possible anyway. So I like to keep him as well-guarded from the sun as possible when we are going to be out and about.
He’s expressed great displeasure with most sunhats I’ve found for him. I suppose that while shielding his eyes and face from the sun, the hats also shielding him from seeing quite a bit. I get that.
Still. His little head is so exposed. And on windy days he can’t bury himself into me quite enough to get away from it.
So when I found emmifaye boutique (right in Minnesota!) with it’s plethora of baby bonnets for every season and occasion; I knew Sweet M needed one.
And boy was I right!
He doesn’t fuss when I put it on him, nor does he try to take it off (though he does try to use the strings as teethers on occasion – so we now know it’s quite durable!).
This handmade hat is not just adorable, but it’s ridiculously utilitarian. It shields his tiny noggin’ from the sun and the wind; and he looks adorable to boot! He’s got a noggin’ in the 75th% – so a big ol’ head compared to Miss H and Mr. B at nearly 6 months old, and he comfortably fits in a size 6-12 month/small hat.
Judy, the owner of emmifaye was so easy and pleasant to work with, and extremely prompt with turnaround. So if you need a bonnet for your little one, be sure to check her out! We will definitely be back for more!
