Does wearing the HUSH Hat™ while sleeping increase the risk of SIDS?
No, not at all. According to the MAYO Clinic, SIDS may be associated with abnormalities in the portion of the infant's brain that control breathing and arousal from sleep.
How do I choose the correct size?
We have a measurement chart located on the 'Features and Specs' tab of each product page. Be sure to take a look here before ordering your child's hat. The HUSH Hat™ is intended to fit nice and snug in order to keep your little one safe and do its job correctly. Along these lines, it wasn't designed to be a product that should be bought with “room to grow”. Putting a hat on your baby, HUSH Hat™ or otherwise, that is much too big could cover their face, and we don't want that. Baby faces are the cutest!
What if I order the wrong size?
We have a 60-day exchange/return policy. Contact Us and we will be happy to assist you with your exchange!
Should my baby sleep all night in the HUSH Hat™?
The HUSH Hat™ is not intended for all night use. It's great for nap-time use at home, running errands, restaurants, sporting events, and anywhere the noise level could startle your infant awake. Unexpected noises and loud environments aren’t usually a problem during nighttime sleep.
Can my baby form a dependency on the HUSH Hat™?
Nope, they shouldn’t. The HUSH Hat™ was designed specifically to soften harsh sounds, not block out all sound. Babies can still hear the world around them as it softens the sounds they are experiencing. The HUSH Hat™ helps babies adjust to this noisy world we live in.
How do I fit the Hush Hat to the baby's ears?
The HUSH Hat™ fits slightly different than a regular hat. It is longer in order to completely cover the infant's ears, so it may require a little adjustment on your end. When placing on the hat on your babies head, first knead the foam for 5-10 seconds to warm it up. The foam has optimal sound absorption when it is warm and in contact with the skin. The warmth allows the foam to conform more closely to the baby's ears. Babies' ear placement ranges greatly! So the foam is also adjustable, allowing you to position it however you want. If you feel the HUSH Hat™ is too low over the babies forehead you can reposition it by giving the back of the hat a little tug. If you have any questions on fit or use feel free to contact us!
Hand wash and lay flat to dry.
What is the foam made of? Is it safe to come into contact with babies skin?
Yes! It’s absolutely safe. The foam is a Confor-Visco Elastic energy absorbing foam, it is fire resistant up to 400′ degrees and made in a green energy facility in the USA. It is medical grade and free from lead content or harmful chemicals. This foam is used in medical devices and other sound absorbing applications. It feels very similar to memory foam. We have a lot of customers comment on how soft and comfortable it feels.
