DIY Cooling Neckerchiefs that Snap for Baby

I’ll be honest, I was really running out of thunder when trying to name this blog post, so I just decided to be straight to the point haha. I mean, it doesn’t get more direct than straight up calling these DIY Cooling Neckerchiefs That Snap for Baby, right?

I should also add that I technically don’t have step-by-step photos for these either because — a) they’re so easy you don’t really need them and b) because they’re so easy that I actually made them from our hotel room at the Andaz in Scottsdale DURING our recent trip with The Proper Blog, Paper & Stitch, and Studio DIY. I meant to make them in advance as gifts for their kiddos, but packing for a baby will do that to you.

Gwen gets hot super easily living here in Houston, and I knew a trip to Scottsdale mid-summer would realllly do her in if she didn’t have something cooling her down. Don’t even get me started about the car seat situation when she’s hot. The screaming is NEXT LEVEL impressive (we bought the Noggle for that), and these cute neckerchiefs solve the problem for beating the heat even if we only stay in the shade.

While this would typically be just as simple as buying premade neckerchiefs online for most people, it’s a well-known no-no for babies to have this around their neck that tie because of choking and breathing hazards. SO, I added snaps to pre-made cooling scarves…

Also worth noting: the cooling beads in the scarves are only sewn into the back portion of the collar, so if baby nibbles on the ends of the scarf there won’t be anything unsafe about it.

All I did to make them baby safe is apply the snaps, one closure to each side of the scarf, and then make a knot on the scarf where each closure is so that when they snap together the scarf looks tied.

And needless to say, trying to wrangle all of these cuties for a photo was QUITE the feat! Such good memories, haha! I’ll be sharing more from our Scottsdale Andaz trip soon!

Also, thank you to my friends for letting me force their kids into modeling…

    I’ll have to try these, because they’re so cute! I’m not sure my son will be willing to wear them (he’s at the rip it all off toddler stage) but we have some smaller babies in our friend circle that could use this!

    That’s still super duper dangerous. It can get tangled in something or one can grab and pull the neckerchief of another kid, I can go on like this… Besides, cooling neck and spine isn’t a good idea when it’s real hot. So, I usually loooove the ideas on this blog but this time oups… :)
