Not a mom or anything, but I'd guess it depends on what kind of hat you're trying to make? I've made a lot of beanie-type hats out of regular fleece before for winter, but this time of year is maybe too warm?

Speaking of stretch fabrics... what sewing machine settings do I use? I noticed I couldn't sew T-shirt material the other day no matter how hard i tried. Kept missing stitches etc...

the softest knit you can find. Baby heads are sensitive.  Babies lose alot of heat through their head so if it's a hat to keep them cozy make sure it can hold a little heat.  Fleece is great for winter time, a tshirt type knit for summer.
