Winter Hats

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!).

1. Toddlers’ L.L.Bean Hi-Pile Hat ~ $19

6 months to 4 years

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 ears for extra cute factor!

2. Gypsy and LoLo Hats ~ $25

3 Months – 6 years

Hip. Whimsical. Warm. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Last year, my son wouldn’t go anywhere without his Gypsy and LoLo monkey hat. Thanks to its velcro strap, these hats really stay put. Made in the U.S.A. from plush, brushed 100% recycled fabrics doubled at the ears for warmth.

3. Zutano Infant Cozie Shaggy Hat ~ $25 (on sale for $17.50)

6-24 Months, also available in 2T-4T sizes

Another mom-favorite, this cute, affordable machine washable hat has warm ear flaps, faux fur, and a velcro fasten under the chin.

4. The North Face Baby Nugget Beanie ~ $26

Infant Size

Recommended by many of the moms we surveyed is this fleece beanie from The North Face, which is made of super soft fleece and velcros under the chin to STAY PUT.

5. 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.

6. Patagonia Baby Reversible Beanie ~ $35

Infant sizes

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.

7. Mini Boden Novelty Knitted Hat – Starboard ~ $30

0 month to 4 years

This super soft hat won’t ever slide off of your little one’s head. We love the odd combo of bear ears and rainbow stripes.

8. Columbia Tiny Animal Beanie II ~ $25


How about them cat ears? This hat is so cute and a fun alternative to the ubiquitous bear ears. Your toddler will love it!


  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!
