Does your baby have a little patch of fine, dark hair right above their butt?

My daughter does. I think it's cute xD Is there a medical name for it, or is it just one of those weird anomalies?

  • My daughter does, too. I think it's just a vestige of the hair that's all over babies when they're born.

  • Yep, most of my babies did, some of them had a finer patch and some had it more because they were more darker. Because I'm mexican lol
