She's only 3 months so give it a few years. My son, who is now 4, was born as pale as me (and I am a redhead so am pretty pale) and stayed that way until he was 2 years old. even now he is pretty light in the winter. from a distance people often mistake him for a white kid. he was also born with red, straight hair. his hair is now, when longer, more afro like, however when cut short it pretty much looks like white kid's hair. mixed kids all look different and she will look however she will look, but give it a few years for her to change and grow into it

My husband is white, I am black. (My hubby is german and scot-irish, and I am cherokee, white and black on my moms side and black on my dads side, so I consider myself black since that is what I have the most of--if you saw me you would say I was black) My first born son is very light skinned. I know white people who are darker than him, he doesn't even really tan all that much. Alot of people think he is spanish, some people think he is egyptian. He is 13 now- and still has no african american features whatsoever. My daughter (his sister) is a little darker than him, but she has "mixed" hair and more african american feautures, you can tell she is black.

Sheela my daughter is 7 1/2 months old and has fair skin and has a small amount of fine brown hair. Im waiting for those beautiful locks to show up, but so far nada its straight wet and dry. She is 50% me and 50% daddy lol (white and black) but I do have to note that I have really fine hair but a lot of it (they tell me) and my husbands hair is a soft tight curl really nice. I'm thinking because I'm so far left and he's so far right maybe my baby will get somwhere in the middle. She was born with a darker shade of brown than she has now but same texture. Oh and people have told me she looks hispanic too but people who know my husband her dad know she looks just like him but a lighter version :)

oh and my sisterinlaw is a Science Teacher, and she said white isnt dominant over brown, or vice versus. she said genetics is very complicated and its more of a 'blending' rather one been dominant over the other.

My partner is Maori dark brown hair, brown eyes and brown skin, and Im white (irish/australian blonde hair, blue eyes, my little boy is 14 months old and hes slowly darkening (but I think that maybe because its Summer here so hes probably just getting a tan) He has brown eyes, blondey brown hair and yellow based skin. Hes not as white as I was as a child but hes def. not brown like his Dad, I get comments all the time from his family how he doesnt look Maori, at all etc. Its a bit frustrating considering he has big almond brown eyes like his Dad and a Maori nose.

Some people can only see colour, rather than the features of the child

My babies hair changed when they were about one. Im bi-racial myself and my hair changed very soft to curly and my daughters have shirley temple hair. I have one baby that is white with black features and another baby that is darker with white features (yes they do have same daddy) All babies are different, time will tell.

I have to examples, I went to school with a brother/sister mother was white father was native, boy looked really native so black hair, dark skin, dark eyes but his sister was blonde haired blue eyed, fair skin. Then there is my friend who has two girls, she is white he is black, first girl was fair born now dark other girl was born dark now fairer. Changes happen with all kids, my daughter was born with olive skin and now is pale as ever sometimes they change sometimes they dont
