  • Nothing. Just let it be. I am sure it is cute as can be. One day you will try to remember how cute she was with her mohawk.

  • -Gently brush your baby's hair. This will stimulate the scalp and keep the blood flowing to the hair follicles
    -Hair growth is dependent on good nutrition. If you are breastfeeding, make sure you are getting a balanced diet.
    -Avoid damaging your baby's hair..such as hair clips etc
    -trimming the wispy ends of your baby's hair will make it appear thicker, even if it does not help it grow.

  • Around that age, they start losing their hair, but it will grow.
    I wouldn't hold your breath though. I didn't have much hair until I was 2 years old!!

  • Don't do anything and don't worry about neighbors little girl didn't have hair till she was almost 3 and now she has a full head of beautiful hair.

  • You don't need to do anything special while breastfeeding. Your milk is always perfect. The diet is for YOU.

    Baby's hair will grow when it grows. I was bald for a full year! Then I had more hair than my mom knew how to handle; she used to send me to the garage to brush it because it got into EVERYTHING. So be careful what you wish for!
