Why put a bonnet on your baby? A baby body loses a lot of heat through the head, this loss can be 30 to 40 %. Next to that, babies still have open fontanelles and are usually uncovered with hair. Loosing of heat, means loosing energy to grow. They also provide a wonderful covering for external stimuli. Babies still have open fontanelles and are therefore more vulnerable to environmental influences. It is important that a part of the forehead remains free, so that your child senses the ambient temperature. The fontanelles of a baby totally close around the age of 12 between 18 months.
