Tie the special accessory into baby’s photo shoot or holiday outfit, buy them one for more shade from the sun, or even pop one on their little head to keep them extra-cozy. Convinced you need this type of hat in baby’s life, stat? Even if you aren’t, you will be after browsing these shoppable baby boy and baby girl bonnets.
