Beware - color bleeds!

Buyer beware - this hat is not color fast! I'm not sure how this company can justify manufacturing a sun hat with non-colorfast dye that will be used by children around sweat and water. The very first time my daughter wore this hat it bled all over her shirt where the brim touched it. It took me a while to realize that it was the hat that had caused it. I couldn't really believe that it would have been made so poorly but rinsed it in the sink anyway just to see. The first time I rinsed it, red colored water just flowed from it. Ridiculous that something made for children wouldn't be made color fast, especially a sun hat!
Positives are that the chin tie allows it be fairly adjustable and that the brim is wide.
However, the negative of the fact that I can never trust that the color won't bleed all over my daughter's clothes makes it unlikely that I will ever actually use this hat.

I like that this hat blocks the sun. However, if you are using it for the purpose of blocking the sun, it is probably hot. My daughter screamed after wearing it for a few minutes. when I took the hat off- her whole head was sweaty. it doesn't allow air to breathe. I recommend not wasting your money and purchasing a cotton breathable hat instead.
Floppy and unusable for a newborn

I like the idea of this hat but the execution isn't right for a newborn, so don't let the 0 - 6 months thing fool you.
It may work in a few months, but now it doesn't. It's way big for a younger baby - mine is 2 months and the hat is just oversized (and her head circumference is standard for her age). I like that it's adjustable, but the adjustable comes from a huge plastic toggle thing that sits right in the back of the head. When does a newborn ever have the back of her head NOT resting on something? Never. So it's virtually useless as a hat because I don't want her to rest her head back on that enormous plastic toggle.
Maybe I'll like it better when she's older and sitting up, where I want the back of her neck shaded and she's got head control so the toggle isn't an issue.
