Dandle•LION® Thermal Hats

Like a Warm Hug for Baby’s Head!

The Dandle•LION Thermal Hat keeps heat from escaping with a quiet polyethylene liner (DEHP and latex free) that is encased between two layers of soft yarn that keeps the plastic from touching the baby. The plastic liner is stitched securely in at the top with overlapping side panels that adjust to the size of the baby’s head.

Dandle•LION Thermal Hats:

  • Come in three color-coded sizes: preemie, newborn and newborn plus
  • Helps to reduce the risk of hypothermia by wicking away moisture and preventing evaporative heat loss
  • Thick two ply acrylic feels soft and warm on baby’s skin
  • Retains the shape better and longer than stockinette
  • No loose threads or unfinished edges

Hypothermia is a serious problem for low birthweight infants, newborns, and infants undergoing surgical procedures in an uncontrolled thermal environment. The surface area of the head is about 20% of the total body surface and is a major source of heat loss. New standards for very premature infants recommend aggressive measures for thermal regulation and humidity immediately following birth. Thermal hats have been shown to make a difference!
