Sick of people commenting on my little girl's baldness!

My daughter is almost 10 months old and is bald. Well, not COMPLETELY bald, she has some very, very fine blond hairs. Anyway, I am SOOO sick of people acting like she's some freak of nature. I know that tons of babies are bald for a really long time after they are born and personally I think it's cute! I know people are just trying to make small talk but give me a break! I need a creative comeback for these comments. What would you say? :)

  • People can be so rude.Give it right back.
    If it's a snarly old person, you could say "Maybe she could borrow some of the hair growing out of your ears/nose".

  • I would put a hat on her cute little head and avoid it.

  • I think it is cute also. I had a little girl who was practically bald until she was two. :)

  • I don't have a creative comeback, but I was bald for over 2 years!!! My mom was worried that I would never grow hair. Well, those worries were unfounded. I have a LOT of hair!

    People are just silly. I hope you come up with a good comeback.

  • Oh, I would say, "Ya isn't she the cutest thing. God didn't want to cover her head because it was so perfect. "

  • I was bald until I was about a year and a half, and then my hair was so fine and blonde you couldn't hardly tell I had hair until I was 3. Now my hair is super thick!

    As for a comeback, you could say something about not having to bother brushing and fixing it. I dunno, I'm not good with comebacks. lol. Just wanted to let you know I was bald too, and now have tons of hair. And I curse it everyday! lol.

  • LOL! My poor little girl had a mohawk. I felt so bad for her and everyone commented on it. I'm not going to lie it did bother me! I mean it's not like I didn't notice so why did others feel the need to draw this to my attention. Now she is 2 1/2 and has the prettiest hair. She has little ringlets that I would die for!! Funny enough, now the same people who used to make fun of her hair LOVE her hair!
    I wouldn't say anything to them! Time will tell....

  • My oldest was bald until about 12-14 months when her hair started to grow in fast and it grew in red instead of the dark brown she was born with. No one commented on it, though. I guess it could be the location you live in or the denseness of some people's brains nowadays.
    Just ignore them and know that she will grow hair, but at her own pace, as with everything she will do in her life. ♥
