This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in April of 2020. Babies are great at finding ways to get into precarious situations. Helmets can help children minimize bumps and bruises from crawling, walking, and over-confidently exploring. Many options are made from 100% cotton with soft chin straps and sufficient air vents. Monitor your child at all times since helmets cannot prevent all injuries from occurring, and can even be harmful if used improperly.

Editor's Notes

May 27, 2020:

Parents are rightfully concerned about the safety of their children. Purchasing baby monitors, baby gates, and countless baby books are just a few items that may bring some peace of mind to parents. Helmets are another tool worth considering since they can help minimize head injuries while children learn how to crawl or walk. We've included a variety of options that will suit most parent's needs.

The Huifen Safety Helmet and the Iume Safety Helmet are both made with 100% cotton material, and are great options for warmer climates since they have great breathability. They both come in fun patterns like stars, apples, and owls. The Huifen is a sturdier construction with a belt-like chin strap that makes it harder for your child to remove by themselves.

The Joovy Noodle Helmet is a great option if you enjoy bringing your child along on bike trips. The Bell Infant Sprout Bike Helmet is a more affordable model, although it's not as adjustable as the former option. They both meet the U.S.A. CPSC safety standard for bicycle helmets for ages 1 and older.

No matter which model you decide on, it's incredibly imperative that babies are monitored at all times since helmets cannot prevent all injuries from occurring. Children can find ways to remove their helmets or choke on the chin strap if it becomes loose or ill-fitted. Many of these options are soft helmets, which means there are not made for bike riding or other similar recreational activities. We recommend the Joovy and Bell helmets when a child is on a bike, however, wearing these selections cannot guarantee their safety since head injuries can occur even while wearing the sturdiest brand. Wash your helmet before use since some of the chemicals used to treat fabrics and materials can cause irritation to sensitive skin. Follow the specific washing instruction for your model.
