Is it okay to put headbands on babies?
Obviously a tight headband is a bad thing and the new rule of thumb is to only leave a headband on your baby for a short photo shoot (possibly no longer than 5 minutes). Also, any headband with a flower or fancy decoration is a serious choking hazard, as babies love to play with anything they can get their hands on.
How wide should a headband be?
A great standard width for crochet ear warmers is 3.5″ wide. I have found this width to work well from toddler size to adult size. Of course you can go narrower or thicker, but 3.5″ wide generally gives total ear coverage which is important when you are trying to keep those ears nice and warm!

Do headbands cause hair loss in babies?
A too-brisk scalp massage can stress hair follicles and speed up hair loss or breakage. Comb your baby’s hair with a soft-bristle brush or a wide-toothed comb that won’t snag on tangles or pull your baby’s hair. Avoid headbands or ponytails that pull your baby’s hair back too tightly, which can damage it.
