Top 10 Most Adorable Baby Boy Hats

Last Updated:

Looking for a cute baby boy hat? You’ve come to the right place!

We live in Florida, so hats are pretty much essential when we take our kiddos outside. If you have a baby, you probably want something with UV protection, but it must be adorable. I mean, that’s just a non-negotiable!

Here are my picks for the top 10 baby boy hats for keeping your baby’s skin protected, looking absolutely adorable, or even a hat that’s just for a baby photoshoot.

There’s a little bit of everything here!

1. Jan & Jul GRO-with-Me Sun Hat

Price at the time of writing: $20.99

Jan & Jul has some amazing baby sunglasses, but they also have these fantastic sun hats. These are definitely my top pick as the very best baby boy hats on the market!

There are tons of patterns to choose from, but what makes these so unique is the fully adjustable head drawstring. That feature allows you to use this for far longer – one size will fit your baby from 6 months to age 2! There is also a size for 0-6 months.

The hat is made of 50+ UPF-rated breathable cotton, so it’ll provide great sun protection while also ensuring your baby doesn’t get too sweaty.

2. Hanna Andersson Baby Swim Sun Hat

Price at the time of writing: $22

The Hanna Andersson sun hat has a classic look with all the essential features you need:

  • UV protection
  • Quick-drying fabric
  • Made of recycled swim knit
  • Ties to keep the hat secure

I really love the solid color, which makes it easier to match the hat to several different types of swimsuits. This is the swimsuit the boy is wearing in the photo.

The hat comes in multiple sizes. Extra small is meant to fit 3-12 months, but a few of the reviews mention the hat runs small, so you may want to size up!

3. i play. Baby Flap Sun Protection Swim Hat

Price at the time of writing: $14.99

i play. has a unique design on their swim hat, which is a full-coverage flap that ensures your baby’s neck doesn’t see the sun.

The hat is also adjustable with a strap. There are options for size 0-6 months and 9-18 months. It’s unclear why there isn’t a size for 6-9 months, but it could just be the current Amazon listing.

The hat offers UPF 50+ protection so your baby isn’t getting that damaging UV radiation.

Like other hats, there are lots of colors to choose from. This is a good choice if you don’t like patterns and prefer a solid color.

4. Olreco SPF 50+ Bucket Hat

Price at the time of writing: $14.99

This bucket hat from Olreco has an SPF of 50+ in addition to tons of adorable patterns. The whale pattern is my personal favorite, but there are several options to choose from!

There are two sizes that are good for babies: 0-6 months and 6-12 months. You could measure your baby’s head if you wanted to, but the age guidelines are generally pretty good as far as hats go.

It also has a chin strap, which will help it stay on if it’s windy or if your baby likes to pull at the brim.

5. Urban Virgin Baby Sun Hat UPF 50+

Price at the time of writing: $9.99

Urban Virgin is another option in the bucket hat space. It offers UPF 50+ protection and a ton of different styles and prints to choose from.

There’s an adorable hat with ears on it, but it’s sold out at the moment. Take a moment to click through the different style choices! They offer sizes 0-6 months and 6-12 months.

6. Carhartt Signature Canvas Cap

Price at the time of writing: $11.99


While Carhartt’s Cap doesn’t offer sun protection and exposes the neck, it’s certainly a popular choice.

If the dad in the family is a Carhartt fan, this would be a really cute baby gift! It’s machine washable and has an adjustable fit.

7. FURTALK Baby Sun Hat UPF 50+

Price at the time of writing: $14.99


FURTALK’s baby sun hat is a unique blend of cotton and spandex. It may not be the best material for in the water, but it’s breathable and super comfy for baby.

It offers great sun protection and comes in sizes 0-6 months and 6-24 months.

8. Born to Love Driver Cap

Price at the time of writing: $19.97

If you’re looking for an adorable hat for a baby photoshoot, this cap from Born to Love is one to beat.

It’s not practical for every day, but boy is it cute!

9. Hart + Land Bamboo Hat

Price at the time of writing: $14

The HART + LAND Hat will keep babies warm, toasty, and extra cute all year round.

Made from soft bamboo fabric, it is hypoallergenic and a great gift for newborns. This one is sized for 0-6 months and super cozy, thanks to the bamboo rayon and spandex blend.

10. Emersen and Friends Print Bucket Hat

Price at the time of writing: $21

The bucket hats from Emersen and Friends are absolutely adorable.

If you’re a bit of a fashionista, you’ll appreciate that each hat features an in-house designed stylish print.

The artists design prints in a variety of trending colors and graphics, which are what make these hats so unique. You won’t find these exclusive prints anywhere else! 


There are so many great baby boy hats on the market, but these 10 caught my eye as the most adorable!

My top pick for sun protection is the Jan & Jul GRO-with-Me Sun Hat. If you want a solid color, which is easier to match to swimsuits, Hanna Andersson would be the runner-up.

Happy shopping!
