Dandle·LION Thermal Hats

With plastic vapor barrier

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 of a newborn infant 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.

The Dandle•LION Thermal Hat keeps heat from escaping with a quiet Polyethylene Liner (DEHP and latex free) is encased between two layers of soft yarn so it never touches the baby. The plastic is stitched securely at the top with overlapping side panels that adjust to the size of the baby’s head without compromising the thermal barrier.
