Our recommendation is that babies start out in a legionnaire style and move on up to a bucket style once they’re a little more independent (sitting/crawling) or are used to wearing a hat. This is due to the style of the hat making this new thing on their head easier to get used to as they’re lighter on heads, a little more upright so they can see out more, and harder to get off due to less fabric to grab onto! That said, we do make bucket styles in the tiny newborn sizes too (and they’re as adorable as you’d imagine) just as we make the legionnaires all the way up to size 54cm. Both styles have the same UPF50+ protection in fabric and design so they’re both equally as safe – it’s just some people prefer a particular style of hat, so we do our best to accommodate that.
