Hats for Infants and Toddlers

Time to bundle up your wee one? Hats are an essential part of baby’s winter wardrobe. But wait, don’t just go for the cute hat with bunny ears. Performance matters most. Below is a selection of winter hats for babies and toddlers that are not only cute, but also warm, soft and easy to get on (and that stay on!).

Azarxis Kids Balaclava Ski Mask ~ $15

Made of fleece, these fun animal ski masks will cover your tot’s head, ears and neck! You can also adjust the size, which means it can last you a while.

Suitable for children ages 2 to 12 years

L.L. Bean Hi-Pile Hat ~ $34

Made from the same material as L.L. Bean’s Uber-popular fleece jacket, this hat is sure to keep your little one’s ears and head super warm. We love the bear ears for extra cute factor!

Available Sizes: 6-12 months, 12-24 months, 2T-4T

G&L Positive Goods ~ $32

Hip. Whimsical. Warm. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Last year, my son wouldn’t go anywhere without his G&L Positive Goods monkey hat. Made in the U.S.A. from plush, brushed 100% recycled fabrics, and doubled at the ears for warmth.

Available Sizes: S/M (1-4 yrs) and M/L (5-9 yrs)

Patagonia Baby Reversible Beanie ~ $17-$39

Two beanies in one? Yes, please! This Patagonia hat has sweater-knit recycled polyester on one side and high-pile 30% recycled polyester fleece on the other. Maximum warmth, maximum cuteness guaranteed.

Sizes from 3M through 5T

Mini Boden Fair Isle Bonnet ~ $28

This adorable, cozy hat is a total throwback to the sweet bonnets some of us (ahem – the older set of us!) used to wear as babies. We love the button at the bottom which ensures it will stay on baby’s head.

Available Sizes: 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-24 months, 2-4 years

That’s all our favorite hats for your little one, enjoy!


  1. Hello! It would be helpful if you included ages for your hat recommendations. Even the product descriptions / reviews on Amazon do not have much info. Makes it seem like you just found something that looked good and linked it. I really trust this site and this particular article doesn’t seem to have the same detail as others. Thanks!
