    How To Select The Summer Hats For Kids

    It’s summertime, and we all want to get our kids outdoors but the harmful effects of the sun can be a constant worry. The best toddler sun hat will protect your little one’s head, face, ears and neck so there’s no need to apply sunscreen to those areas. With Spring just around the corner and the days starting to get longer, everyone feels that longing and excitement to spend more time outside again.

    Especially for families with young kids, it means more time to spend outside, go to the beach, have a picnic, play dates at the local play ground or more time for family adventures.

    With all the excitement also comes the need for parents to put some thought and energy into the right outfit that will keep their babies and kids safe, while playing in the sun.

    Keeping the strong sun conditions in mind, we would like to share some further facts and information worth considering when choosing the right babies and children sun hat to protect your family for the Spring and Summer seasons.

    You’ll understand how great that is if you’ve ever had sunscreen drip down into your eyes after sweating or being in the water. Even waterproof sunscreen eventually has that effect. No one wants their child to go through that! Here’s what we recommend…

    Like in sunscreen ointments the protective effect of clothing is given as UPF, which is the Ultraviolet Protection Factor. The UPF indicates how much longer, according to skin types, a person could stay out in full midday sun.

    Optimally, dermatologists recommend a minimum UPF of 30 for those with fair skin. For darker skin tones, a UPF of 20 combined with not staying out in the sun for too long would be fine.  As always though, it is best to seek an opinion from your family dermatologist as to the suitable level as all skin types vary.

    Textiles tested according to the Australian standard have only be checked whilst new and dry. Materials reaching an UPF of 40 according to this standard often only make it for an UPF of 5 when re-tested according to UV STANDARD 801, the strictest standard currently available.

    Only the UV STANDARD 801 tests fabrics under real-life conditions: wet, stretched and after multiple care cycles.

    The lowest UPF measured is indicated on the “UV protect” label and guarantees the protection level under any conditions.

    With our selected range of babies and children's sun hats by aungcrown, we are aiming to provide the safest protection under the summer sun.

    First and foremost keep in mind: the most important UV protection is sensible handling of sun-bathing: Less is more!
    Start slowly with short stays in the sun and remember the "from 11 to 3 under the tree" rule.

    Age is another important factor as newborn skin is much thinner, more sensitive and will burn easier. Therefore, we recommend no direct sun for babies under the age of 1 year.

    Toddlers can enjoy the sun but only with sufficiently high UV protection - textile protection is more appropriate at this age than just sun screen alone!


    To be protective, clothing needs to cover as much skin as possible and should fit loosely.

    A long-sleeved shirt and a wide-brimmed hat are far better than a T-shirt with a baseball cap!

    Stretching and moisture may reduce any protective effect of fabrics dramatically.

    Look for certified UV protective textiles - at best, certified according to UV standard 801 - as these fabrics add safety, reassurance and extra protection.

    What to look for when shopping for kids’ summer hats
    Wide Brim
    Look for a wide brim to get the best sun protection. A wide brim will protect not only the eyes and face, but the neck, ears and some of the shoulders as well

    Neck Protection
    Your baby’s hat should have good neck protection from the sun. The back of the neck is a very common place for sunburn, so look for a hat with a wide brim or neck flaps to protect your little one’s neck.

    Ultraviolet Protection
    UPF, or Ultraviolet Protection Factor, is a numerical rating that is given to fabrics to rate how effective they are at blocking the sun’s ultraviolet rays.

    Always, look for a UPF of 50 or higher to ensure the best sun protection for your child. For extra sun protection, combine with a good kids rash guard.

    Chin Strap
    Be sure the hat you select has a chin strap. Most babies will pull and tug at their hat at some point and a chin strap will help to keep the hat in place. A chin strap will also prevent the hat from blowing off in the wind.

    There is so much more to choosing a sun hat for your baby or toddler than just the cuteness factor! Do your research to make sure you are giving your little one the best possible protection from the sun’s harmful rays.
