Sleep Hat : Funny and Functional

By emily |

Parenting a newborn is hard. And sometimes, in the midst of it all, you just need a good laugh at the expense of  the baby to get you through the rest of the day.

I’ve realized, that some days, especially the particularly challenging ones, if I didn’t laugh, I would cry. Or die. And laughing is so much better than crying and dying. Right?

Being that Paul is my 4th child, I’ve purchased him approximately nothing. Almost everything he owns has been passed down from him big brother. But when I saw the sleep hat, I knew I needed to get him one.

Because it’s beyond hilarious. And I live for a good laugh.

I chuckle each and every day at Paul when I put the sleepy hat on his little noggin for nap time. Honestly, it just never stops being funny to me!

But the thing is? It’s incredibly functional. Even if I didn’t laugh so hard at him, I would still want one.

Sleep Hat : Funny and Functional

Power to the sleepy hat!

The hat is  awesome because you put it on the baby’s head before they fall asleep, with the eye flap flipped up. Then, when the baby drifts asleep, you just carefully and quietly adjust the flap down, over their eyes.

Works every time.

I use it daily, especially when we’re out and about running errands.

This hat is from zoe b organics, and retails for $16.99. Friends, it’s worth every single cent. If I could, I would buy each and every one of you a sleepy hat.

    Oh how I love that hat.

    Oh, how I wish I had known about and had one of these several months ago. My babe would not go to sleep without his eyes covered until quite recently. Plus, it’s totally darling!

    Ha! I don’t think my daughter would dig it but I love it.

    We NEED this! My daughter is a horrible napper. I always have her in a hat anyway, but am a little worried about her not being able to breathe very well. Thanks for posting :)
