Q.

Crash helmet for babies

A strange question!

My 7 month old baby is pulling himself up on the furniture and then lets go. He lands on the tiled floor with a huge noise. Is there any way to protect his head? I have tried using a bonnet, but it is still summer and he sweats a lot.

Protective headgear is avilable for babies for this situation, but I am not sure if this is available in SA. The best known special hats are called Thudguard hats. Read more at this web address:www.babysfirstheadgear.com
