A Clever Way to Protect Your Baby’s Hearing


When you’re buying items for your baby’s wardrobe, consider picking up a hat that helps protect baby’s hearing.

The noise reduction hat from Dots on Tots is a combination of the company’s ear protection hat and infant noise reduction hat. It has removable hearing protection inserts that reduce outside noises while protecting baby’s ears as much as possible.

The hat is made of soft organic cotton, with two layers on the flaps and one extra inner layer of fleece cotton to make a pocket for the insert. The inserts are made from two layers of organic hemp fabric and stuffed with organic cotton fiber to increase sound absorption. The straps stretch to help keep the hat in place.

Dots on Tots hats are made in the USA. They come wrapped in tissue paper with a thank you note packed in a eco-friendly, recyclable pillow box.

The noise reduction hat from Dots on Tots comes in small and medium sizes. The small hat should fit most babies from 0 to 8 months, while the medium hat should fit children from 8 months to 20 months. Both hat sizes sell on Amazon or Dots on Tots website.

My son was a fairly easygoing baby, but he was very sensitive to loud noises. If someone so much as raised their voice in his presence, he’d have a total meltdown.

I would have loved to have had a noise reduction hat from Dots on Tots when he was an infant. (We didn’t go to parades, fairs, or fireworks displays until he was in kindergarten and could better cope with the unexpected sounds.)
