REI Paddler Hat
I do try my best to apply sunscreen, but honestly it’s mostly like trying to grease a cat. So thank goodness for hats. I think what I really want is some kind of kiddie sombrero, but, barring that, our hat of choice is the REI Paddler Hat, which is so great that every time we go out strangers stop me and ask where I got them. It has a super-wide brim, nice ventilation on the crown, and it floats, though honestly we’ve never used that feature. It must be a comfortable hat, because Henry often wears his all day long. We’ve got three of them. I see they also have a girl version, though for some reason it doesn’t have the same big ventilation on the crown, and has daisies on it, so just get the cooler-looking blue for your girl. Not everything your girl wears needs to be pink and covered in flowers.
