Every head is different and children’s heads grow rapidly, especially in the first years of life, so the cap size plays an important role. Here you will find all the information about the correct choice of cap, matching the head circumference of the baby or toddler.
You can determine the cap size based on the measured head size or you can orientate yourself by the average head size per age.
Our guide tells you how to measure head size correctly:
Measuring head circumference with the measuring tape
To measure the head circumference (also called hat size) you need a non-stretchable measuring tape.
- Wrap the non-stretchable sewing measuring tape around the child’s head above the ears and the most prominent part of the back of the head. About one centimeter above the eyebrows and ears over the forehead (not at the top of the hairline!)
- The tape should be tight but not cut.
- At the overlap point of the measuring tape, you can read the head circumference directly.
No measuring tape at hand?
- If you don’t have a flexible, non-stretchable measuring tape, you can use a non-stretchy piece of string.
- Wrap around the head as suggested and mark it to indicate the circumference.
- Next, lay the string out on a flat surface and use a ruler to measure it.

Tip: If you fall between measurements (e.g. 49 cm for Kids “M” (45-49 cm) and Kids “L” (49-54 cm)), go for the next size up.
