How to Size Children's Hats


Hats are a fun addition to your child's wardrobe that can also be beneficial. Not only can a hat protect your little one from the sun, it can also keep her warmer in cold weather. Before choosing a hat for your kiddo, you need to determine what size she needs.

Things You'll Need

  • Cloth tape measure
  • Marker
  • Size chart

Step 1

Determine your child’s head circumference by measuring your child’s head with a tape measure to establish what size hat your child will wear.

Step 2

Place the end of the tape measure with the smallest number in the middle of your child’s forehead.

Step 3

Wrap the tape measure all the way around your child’s head, holding the tape measure just above your child’s eyebrows.

Step 4

Place your index finger between the child’s head and the tape measure to ensure the measurement includes a little extra room.

Step 5

Read the measurement from the beginning of the tape measure to where the tape measure meets at the center of your child’s forehead. Record that number with your marker.

Step 6

Refer to the following chart to determine what size hat your child will wear.

Head circumference:

14 inches to 15 inches = 0 to 3 months old = Child's X small 15 inches to 17 inches = 3 to 6 months old = Child's Small 17 inches to 18.5 inches = 6 to 12 months old = Child's Small 19.5 inches to 20.75 inches = 1 to 2 years old = Child's Medium 20.75 inches to 21.25 inches = 2 to 4 years old = Child's Large 21.5 inches to 22 inches = 4 to 8 years old = Child's X Large
