I LOVE these hats! At first I was going back & forth on them for my son & daughter, as they are rather goofy looking, but sun protection on the beach trumps style for my fair skinned/blonde toddlers! I have big children, and purchased the youth size for my just turned 4yo son (sizing goes small/baby, medium/child, large/youth). It fits him perfectly with room to grow! For my 14m old daughter I purchased the child size, & that fits her perfectly with room to grow! In fact, I wish I had purchased her the youth size as the size difference is really minimal.
PROS: Super adjustable! These will fit them for a long time. I really love how fast they dry once wet, and that the brim does not flop down in their faces once wet...it is sturdy, yet very soft/flexible. I love the mesh panels on the sides that let their heads breathe, the breakaway clip so they can't be strangled if caught up on anything, and the adjustable chin strap holds them on their sweet heads perfectly. Easily packable, take up no room in the beach bag.
I highly recommend these hats, and recommend them to all the parents that come up to us on the beach asking about them!
**Pictures show youth size Royal/Black underneath my daughter's child size Pink fossil print hat. Minimal difference in size, the brim & flap is just a bit shorter. Her big brother's youth size fits her perfectly as well...these are SO adjustable! I'd go with youth if your child is 2+ (Unless they are teeny-tiny) and then you won't need another sun hat for years!**
