hair bow glue???

Is there anything I can use to help bows stay in my 9 month olds hair? She is still practically bald. Someone told me to use scotch tape once but I didn't really like that idea very much and I'm not gonna just glue it! lol... any ideas? Thanks! =]

  • i was a bald baby and my mom used white Elmers Glue (like the kind you would have used in elementary school). it's non-toxic and washes out with warm water :-) my MIL used KY jelly on my SIL.

  • I didn't like the idea of something being stuck to my daughters head so I used crochet headbands. Here is a link for a website where you can get 14 crochet headbands in a variety of colors for $13.00 (shipping included). They typically sell for $5 to $7 at boutiques so I find that this whole sale deal is a BIG plus!! It's

    Hope that helps.
