Size Advice & Brim Depth:
One fact you can be sure of - no two heads are the same! ALWAYS measure your child's head before purchasing to ensure getting the accurate size.
Step 1: Distract the child with a toy or food (so they don't try and help you!).
Step 2: Use a measuring tape to take measurement. Otherwise use a ribbon to take the size then use a ruler to find the measurement.
Step 3: Purchase the size closest to your childs measurement. Our hats are very stretchy and will grow up to 4cm.
FOR EXAMPLE: The child measures 41cms, you will need the 42cm size that will stretch another 4cms up to 46cms - giving plenty of future wear. Purchasing the next size up would be too large and block the childs vision.

Brilliant customer service via email when I got the wrong size. My one-year-old has a massive head so I presumed the 1-2 years size would be too small. It actually fits him really well with room to stretch when he grows a bit. The chin strap means it's much harder for him to pull off the hat himself and he's putting up with wearing it so far, I think mostly because it's actually quite comfortable. I would definitely purchase from this company again.
