How To Select Newborn Beanies

By Ida Dorsey

When mothers choose clothing for their newly born babies, comfort is one of their primary concerns. Newborn beanies are one of the items that provide extra protection and warmth for a sensitive tiny head. Many of the items available from baby boutiques, stores and online retailers today offer softness and warmth but are also very visually appealing.

The head of a newly born baby is vulnerable to heat and cold as it cannot regulate temperature properly yet. The material chosen has to not only provide protection and be comfortable but air circulation is important too. This is why many mothers opt for natural materials.

The traditional rounded shape, stretchiness and flexibility of a beanie works particularly well in gently hugging a small head. Most of the shapes are basically the same but the difference comes in the colors, patterns and accessories. A knitted beanie with a close knit works well in cold weather and a crocheted one is better for warm weather because its weave is looser. A beanie has the added bonus of protecting the ears and some are even made with a visor for protection from the sun.

A rainbow of different colors are available. Mothers can select from single colors and patterns of all kinds using different colors. They can choose a color according to the gender of the baby but there are also many neutral options too. Fortunately these items are not too costly and this means that most mothers have items in various colors to go with certain outfits.

For special events like a christening or the first photo shoot a really special beanie can be selected. For example, a white one with a huge pink flower will make a baby girl look adorable for her very first photo shoot. Many of the better quality items are hand crafted using age-old techniques. Although the techniques used may have been around for centuries, the styles, patterns, colors and accessories chosen are modern.

Ribbons, flowers, animal ears and flaps are just some of the ways in which a beanie can be transformed. Many new mothers want to proudly post photographs of their new baby on social media sites. Really unique photographs can be created when a baby is dressed in an attention-grabbing beanie.

Many online retailers supply these items today. Some products are of a better quality than others and mothers who are looking for top quality items usually go for hand crafted items which are also sold online today. On these sites, prices can be compared and images viewed of babies wearing the items.

When making a choice, comfort, climate, gender and size are some of the factors to take into consideration. It is no use selecting a cheaply priced item because it looks beautiful only to find that it is uncomfortable and impractical for the baby to wear. Comfort and warmth will always be the primary consideration but many of the items available offer this as well as the cuteness factor.
