    Is it really true that up to 2mth old their skull is still not fully closed up yet and need to cover his head to avoid wind gets in and future will have headache?

    Hi Hi,
    You cover the head cause of ugly? That means it's not to prevent him from wind getting in?
    How about at home? Like fan blowing around. or wind too big and wind will get into his head?

    yup. i made DS wear a hat when i bring him out. he hates it alot, cos the hat will always somehow cover his eyes without fail, no matter how i adjust for him. (actually i suspect he's the one who adjust it after i put it on for him, cos he dun like hats......) :p whether does it help to prevent wind from going in, i dunno. cos i jus simply follow wat my mum say.

    at home, he's always hat-less.
