Afternoon all, i was out at the park this morning letting my 11 nearly 12 month old play.. Im having troubles keeping his hat on.. Ive tried using the ones that have the the cord under the chin but he gets so agrivated he nearly chokes himself.. Is there any advice other parents can give to help me keep his hat on?
Many thanks in advance....

Keeping hats on

Just keep putting it back on his head & cover him in sun screen.
Mine kids were the same, they're now almost 3 & keep hats on.

Role model the behaviour. If they see you wearing a hat outside, it becomes normal to them. On top of that, I'd they take it off, put it straight back on. May have to do it a million times but if you don't give in then they will give up and get the message. Can also do the no hat no play rule.

Yep, agree with PPs but also distraction. Hat on (and sunnies here) and then "oh wow look at the doggy, let's go down the slide, here have a snack" and they tend to forget they're wearing their hat.
