5 Reasons Your Baby Needs a Bucket Hat for Sun Protection

As the summer months approach, parents are already thinking of outdoor activities and vacations that include their little ones. With all the excitement in planning keeping you busy, I'm here to help you keep your babies' delicate skin protected from the sun's harmful rays with the cutest summer accessory. I'm giving you 5 reasons why your baby needs a bucket hat for sun protection!

Did you know that a baby's skin is thinner and more sensitive than an adult's?This means they're more susceptible to sunburns and other forms of damage caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation. In this blog post, I'll discuss why protecting your baby from the sun should be a top priority during summer months and why my personal favorite baby cover-up option - the essential bucket hat - is the BEST option that will keep your little one cool and cute while enjoying fun in the sun!

Let's get into it!

Reason #1 why a bucket hat is the best option for baby sun protection? The wide-brim design! It provides full coverage to protect baby's face, neck and ears from harmful UV rays. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, infants under six months old should avoid direct sunlight exposure because their skin is still too sensitive and lacks melanin, which protects against ultraviolet (UV) radiation. However, when going outside with a baby over six months old, parents should use proper sun protection and gear like my Personalized Baby Sun Hat, a bucket hat with wide brim that covers the face, neck, and ears to shield against UV rays as they coming in at different angles throughout the day. Bucket hats are lightweight and breathable making them the best comfortable option for babies even on the hottest days.

Reason #2 for investing in a bucket hat for your baby or toddler this summer is the comfortability and breathability of these lightweight hats! There are cotton and linen options but a parent favorite is polyester microfiber which has moisture-wicking properties that help keep sweat away from the skin while still maintaining its shape even after washing multiple times. All of my summer collection sun hats are made of polyester microfiber and they are light and super breathable!

Reason #3 for choosing a baby bucket hat for summer protection is that they are easy to wear and will grow along with your little one! Easy-to-wear and adjustable, my personalized baby bucket hats come with drawstrings and chin straps. Unlike traditional baseball caps or straw hats, which can take time to put on, don't stay in place or require a lot of readjustment throughout the day, bucket hats simply sit comfortably on your head without any fuss. This makes them ideal for outdoor activities such as the amazing family vacation you're planning for already this summer.  I've got your little one covered!

Reason #4 why a bucket hat is this summer's must-have for your baby to protect them from the sun are the endless versatility and style options! As mentioned before bucket hats have been around for decades and you won't go wrong with one of my modern classic baby bucket hats! Different styles options are available for both boys, girls and gender neutral to match any outfit or occasion. Sizing is from 3 months to toddler!

Reason #5 why the best sun protection for your kids this summer is a bucket hat is that they are an affordable investment with long-term skin health benefits! And the best part is the ability to personalize your baby bucket hat from Rosemary Press Co.!

I hope this summer you take some fun vacation photos and share a photo of your little one wearing their Rosemary Press Co. Personalized Sun Hat!

P.S. Some quick and fun history for your next trivia night with friends! Did you know bucket hats were originally designed as practical gear for fishermen and farmers in the early 1900's? They really evolved into mainstream fashion in the 1960's. Today bucket hats continue trending while still a practical accessory to flair to any outfit for both young and old alike!
