What are the measurements of your hats?

Small - Circumference 20” (6 months to 2 years)

Medium - Circumference 21” (2 years to 4 years)

Large - Circumference 22” (4 years to 6 years)

Why is the opening for the BAHA towards the top of the hat?

We found from personal experience that small children (our daughter started to wear hers at 4 months of age) need to place the BAHA to the top of their heads as they bump, roll over and/or lean on it when the BAHA is behind their ear.  This included everyday wear around the house and in car seats.  So we benefited most when the BAHA was towards the top of her head.

What is the difference between the original FlapJackKids hats and the I Hear That hat?

It is with great pleasure that I share, The Loving Ladybug is working with FlapJackKids to provide the I Hear That hat.  They “strive to provide excellent products and insist on the best materials available. Their products are routinely checked and monitored by quality inspectors to ensure excellence and to meet FlapJackKids high standards”.  The hats are always reversible and UPF 50+ to protect your children.

The I Hear That hat has been modified to allow children with the a Unilateral softband to wear their hearing aid and hat together.  They no longer have to take off the softband to go outside and wear a hat!  There is an open area to the upper side of the hat that allows the hearing device to fit through and be comfortable with no feedback.

The additional benefit is the Softband will stay in place and your child or other children are less likely to pull it down!
