I am always on the lookout for a quick but special baby shower gift. A year and a half ago, I was invited to a shower for the daughter of a good friend. The shower gift for Brady included a jacket and this cute hat. I was told the hat has now become "the" hat. Brady is now on his third one.
My understanding is that the hat is "the" hat because it is warm, but not tight or constricting. It is soft, but not scratchy. Most importantly, Brady can't pull it off thanks to the snap.
Brady is now on his third hat - the original one was a 3 month size, the second was 18 months, and the most recent which will be for next winter is size 3. I had to grade up the pattern!
