Nerdy (Awesome) Baby Hats

Are you one of the many people who aren’t fans of infant headbands? Are you looking for some inspiration for a cute newborn photo shoot? Are you a huge nerd? Then these hats may be for you. Newborns don’t need hats right after birth (their temperature can be regulated through thermal synchrony simply by being skin-to-skin with their mama, and hats may interrupt bonding through smell), so consider keeping these creative headpieces for special occasions, photos, Halloween, and for trips out this Fall and Winter.


It’s a crocheted baby viking hat, need I say more? There are many versions of these on Etsy, but I really love this one. There are a ton of sizes available from newborn through 24 months, and it’s made from super soft yarn. The artisan behind Cricket Creations makes a ton of other really cute hats and outfits, everything from dinosaurs to a tiny police uniform.

What do you mean your baby was born without a beard? This must be remedied immediately. If you’re crafty, you can follow the pattern and instructions from the genius I’m Topsy Turvy and create your own hat/beard combo!

The mom behind I’m Topsy Turvy is incredibly talented, dabbling in baking, party favors and invitations, home projects, and all sorts of crafts. Now that I’ve found her blog, I consider myself a follower for life. She’s so talented!

I adore this chicken hat, and all the other hats, outfits, and props made by Critters Cakes and Knits. Quality, non-cheesy chicken-themed infant stuff is pretty hard to find it seems, and priced at only $18.50, this newborn hat is a steal.

Check it out at CrittersCakesandKnits’ Etsy page!



There are many different boobie beanies on the market nowadays (which is awesome), but I really, really love these by CheekyChumy. Made from soft wool yarn, these beautifully crafted hats come in a variety of different colors and shades. CheekyChumy also makes tons of other hats (including an adorable crown and baby lamb hat!) and ships worldwide from the UK.

Check out CheekyChumy’s Etsy page (and do it soon, the boobie beanie is on sale now for only $12.75!)



This hat, you need. I found many styles of yoda hats on Etsy, but was really drawn to this one by The Owl Tree Knitting Co. Must have something to do with the extra-long ears and the fact that the materials list include acrylic  yarn and yoda. It can be made for your child anywhere from newborn stage to 10 years old!

Check out lots of adorable wares at The Owl Tree Knitting Co.



This is the most unique Yoda hat I’ve found thus far in my search for awesome infant headwear. Made by MamaJody54, this hat is crafted from two types of yarn and is just seriously adorable. This would be the perfect accessory for your baby if attending Hollywood Studios during Star Wars Weekends!

MamaJody54 makes some really cute infant gear- check them all out at her Etsy page.



This was an accidental find- I believe I was trying to find a Mr. Toad-inspired outfit and came across this instead, by Stitched by My Hand! It’s made from soft acrylic yarn, comes in a variety of colors and in any size you need, which means you can get one for yourself, too.

Check out this hat (and many others, including one of a moose head) at Stitched by My Hand’s Etsy shop.



So, okay. This is so much more than just a hat. This is an entire outfit including hat, sweater, and Freddy razor glove. If you’re a horror fan, this is a must-have. I literally gasped when I saw it… I couldn’t believe that anyone was so clever as to craft this. Hats off (ha! see what I did there?) to Have Needle Will Travel for this creation. It’s a bit pricey for one “outfit” but it’s hand-made from American wool and bamboo yarn, and I can pretty much guarantee that your baby will be the only one around sporting a teeny tiny Freddy Krueger costume.
