So Why Do Babies Need to Wear Bonnet or Cap During Baptism?
Because the white cap symbolizes purity. A newly baptized child is washed from original sin and is pure in the eyes of God and Church until he or she commits his/her first sin post-baptism. The white cap symbolizes a cover to preserve the purity of the child.
That is the religious reason but there's also a practical reason behind it. After pouring water on your child's head, it will feel cold and you would want your child to feel comfortable and warm with a bonnet.
