Hip hip hooray! Now let’s make sure your little ones have got their hats on too..

Sun hats are really quite tricky. They need to tick a number of boxes. They have to be protective, they have to stay on on windy days and they have to look cute too, obviously.

There are so many horrible sun hats out there and I know a few of you have been struggling. But rest assured, you can stop the search, I’ve found lots of lovely ones! Those Liberty print bonnets are just another level. I’m half debating whether I can squeeze 3 year old Rose into one!

A tip for younger babies/ toddlers. If you’re going on holiday it’s handy to have a couple of hats. They often get them wet in the pool and if you have a dry spare in your bag it saves them having to eat lunch in a soggy hat!

I have ordered mine, I just need to find a way to stop Rupert having a total melt down when I put it on him. Any tips?!
