My son is 12 months in a few days, since he was about 9 months he pulls his hat off the instant I it it on. I smother him in sunscreen but I would really like him to wear a hat also were in Western Australia and I get burnt within the half hour..

When my daughter was that age, I just kept putting the hat back on whenever she took it off. She learned fairly quickly not to bother. :D

My son would do the same at that age though it was winter time. I found this cute hat that was a pull on kind with a monkey on top of it. He never took it off when I put it on. When he turned 3 he finally was too old for it and I had to fight him to get him to give it up.

I might have to try that method next time were at the shops just too see if any spark his interest. I'm starting to put his hat on to make it look 'cool' but i think it just annoys him. Thanks for the reply :)
