Concept is great!
on June 5, 2014
I wish we would have found this hat sooner!!! As an infant my son didn't really have much of a problem having his hair washed. Now that he is a toddler, he does not like water in his face. He does not understand that if he tips his head back the water will stay (for the most part) out of his face. When you try to hold his head back, he freaks. So we purchased this hoping it would help and maybe make it fun (Look at your cool hat that keeps the water out of your face!).
When it arrived it had been folded up. Not a problem, but it did need to sit out, on a flat surface, for a few days before it would stop trying to "scrunch" back up. When I first placed it on my son's head it was a bit small. I could hardly snap the buttons. That's a fairly easy fix - the material will stretch over time and is semi-flexible as-is. If that still doesn't provide enough give, there are button extenders that would work fine. Once it fit my son's head we tried it. He immediately ripped it off mid-pour, which completely defeated the purpose. This would likely not be a problem with an infant.
It IS a great concept and I'm sure it would be perfect if it was used from a very early age. At this time, however, our son being our first child, we didn't know about it until it was essentially "too late".
