I know buying outfits for babies is hard to resist, but if you are buying an outfit just because it comes with a hat DON’T. Yes they are so cute but here is a reality check……hats don’t stay on a baby’s head. I have so many hats; I don’t know where they all came from. Some have matching outfits and would be precious if my daughter wore them together. There is a little bit of a problem, we live in the South and to put a cotton hat on her would be almost cruel. So my advice, unless you are having a baby in the middle of winter or live some place like Michigan, don’t fool with hats.
Exception: Summer hats, sailor hats, bonnets and hats that look like flowers. They still won't stay on (especially on newborns) save these for when they get older. They are too cute though!
