Do any of you redheaded moms have redheaded children? My son is three months old, and we still don't know what color his hair is going to be.

Hello fello Redheads :)

Can I first say how awesome it is to have a group like this, I feel proud lol!



I was so sure I would have a red head but when my daughter came out she had a full head of brown hair, with blond tips! She looked like she just came back from the hair dresser. Some days it loks like it will turn, her eyebroes are mostly light with a few darker hairs and the roots of her hair are lighter. I have know idea what is going to happen!



Any one got an older child who had similar hair?

Cheers :)

I have a two year old girl with medium blonde hair, she was born with black hair but it went away pretty quick. and I have a 2 month old with Black hair as well. I have a natural blondish reddish hair, and their father is Hispanic and white mixed. He has black hair and green eyes now, but until he was 4 years old, his hair was blonde...so you never really know. =]

My son was born with orange hair now he is 15 months and his hair is like a reddish brown color, his eyebrows are blond and his lashes have some red and brown in it, his eyes are a dark brown. I have brown hair and brown eyes and my husband have brown hair and brown eyes however his mustache has some red and blond tint to it. My oldest daughter has brown hair and eyes as well and my middle child has a really light brown almost blond. and amber color eyes. I am really hoping my son stays with the red hair I love it sooo much!!!

Hello. My husband and I are both redheads. We have 5 kids total. He has 2 from a previous and I have one. Together we have non-identical twin boys. We thought that with both of us having red hair, that both of the twins would be redheaded... My father is also a redhead (as well as my little brother), but MY mother and HIS father are natural blondes... So, our first twin, Joel, has bright red hair and our second twin, Jacob, has blonde with red undertones... I think Jacob will end up being "strawberry blonde". All 3 of our other children (Jackson, Joseph and Sarah) are brunettes. Our friends that introduced us are also a redheaded couple. They have 3 little girls; 2 redheads and one blonde. "They" say that their will not be anymore redheads within the next 50yrs... Apparently "They" haven't been to Scott, AR!!!!!

I am married to a blonde. When I was pregnant with my first baby I really wanted a girl, but made a deal with God that I wouldn't care if I have all boys as long as one of them got my red hair. Well, I have two boys...my first born has red hair and freckles...my second has blonde hair! Never make deals with God....he doesn't play fair! lol

My son is 11 months old, and we still don't know what color his hair is. I think it's going to be a lighter brown. I was hoping for red, but you get what you get and you don't throw a fit! :)

I have dark auburn hair, both of my two children have brown hair now. My daughter is 7 now and when she was born she had light brown hair with some red tints to it, but it changed when she was 4 and their are no signs of red anywhere, just light brown. my son he is 3 now and he was born with black hair, after many hair cuts it has changed to a light brown now. I have a brother with red hair also, and his son is 13 and he also has red hair.

My hair was reddish when I was a young woman, and my son was born with dark auburn hair ... lots of it. When he was about 3 months old, it all fell out and grew in a light blond, almost white. Then as he grew older it became a very dark brown. Now it is all gone. My sister married a strawberry blonde man, and 3 out of 4 of her children are redheads, and most of her Grandchildren are redheads.

My two girls both were born with thick black hair and it lightened to a red tinge, until it all fell out and now they have blonde hair(both fathers are very dark). My son is only 11 weeks and his is doing the same.

Yep, I still can't tell what color hair my son is going to have. Wanda, he does have really light eyebrows but not lashes. He's a cutie regardless! :)

My parents are both brunettes - but my sister and I are red-heads. My sister is bright red and I am more reddish-brown.

I can't tell with my 8 week old yet...his eyebrows and lashes are so light - either red or blonde and he was born with brown hair - but is losing it now.
He looks like he could be a red-head in the sun!

Sadly none of my kids had red hair, both my sister's kids have redhair, she is blonde but her husband red head. My kids all blonde/fair. All four of my grandparents had red hair of various shades, notably none of their children did but each of their children, my mum and dad ,aunts and uncles had a least one red headed child. My eldest daughter is blond but has the redhead's very fair skin, does not tan at all and burns very easily.

My son has thick, vibrant, auburn hair, he was born with it. His hair astonishes many people, in fact we get stopped a lot when we're out. In the hospital, nurses (who had been told by my nurses) were coming in to see his hair. I'm still baffled by it. Especially since his father is half Asian (you should see the confused looks my husband gets if he's holding Hunter when we're out)!
About a month before he was born, I had a dream that I gave birth to baby with fire instead of hair, it freaked me out so badly! When I saw his hair for the first time I realized what my dream was telling me. Weird huh?
He is about 10 1/2 months now and his hair has not changed yet.

I have 3 children and although they all have glints of red in the light they are not redheads. My husband always wanted to have redhead children but it isn't to be - maybe we'll have redhead grandkids :)

I have 3 boys and only my youngest has reddish hair. My 12 yr old twin boys have brown hair, and my 5 yr old has reddish hair. Just a few weeks before he was born me and my husband were joking around about him coming out a red head. And sure enough he was carrot top red, now he's a reddish brown. The red hair in my family skipped two generations before there was a red child in my family.

[deleted account]

I am the mother of 2 boys and both have light brown hair... eldest practically blonde. My eldest does look red in some photos and in the summer though! I am expecting my 3rd baby in May so if I have a girl this time I would love her to have my red hair (mine was really red when younger but as I gotten older it is now a auburn colour). My husband's hair is practically black. I have 1 brother with red hair and the other has dark brown. Both my parents have dark hair but both my grandmothers had red hair. None of my grandmothers children had red hair but I have loads of cousins with red hair.... think in our family too it skips a generation too!!

[deleted account]

2 of my 3 were born w/ strawberry blonde fuzz...but as they got into toddlerhood it became just blonde and now one is blonde and one is brunette. The other one started out blonde and now brunette...go fig

Amanda I am a redhead and my husband a brunette. We have 4 children 2 of which are redheads and 2 are blondes. Mostly you could tell if your 3 mon. old has no color in their eyebrows & eyelashes. Generally that will tell you if they are going to be a redhead. However, they could also just have the hi-lights in their hair. I have 2 siblings with redhead and 3 brunettes as well. However, we have redhair on both of my parents side but neither parent was redheads. Hope this helps. Wanda in indiana

I wanted to add this to my prior posting, Both of my Grandmother's were redheads..My Dad's Mother had 6 children and none were redheaded, My Mom's Mother had 10 children and none of them were redheaded, My Brother and I are both redheaded even though both of my parents are nearly black-headed. We have 3 other cousins that are redheaded also, it seems to me that if you are a redhead and give birth to a redhead it is a special and rare occurence , it seems to skip a generation most times..

My son has dark brown curly hair. My partner is Tongan and i was sure Isaac would have dark hair. But as he's getting older you can see a little bit of bronze in the sun. I think it will just be like highlights.

i am a redhead. Both my parents don't have red hair, neither do my 3 siblings. And to make matters worse, neither do my 3 children. I am told that my grandchildren will have red hair. we shall wait and see. The children's hair change so frequently at this stage.

That's funny cuz my 20 week old has me wondering that same thing! He had some red hair when he was born but that all fell out and it is coming in darker and not so red! (His Dad has dark brown hair) But in certain lights it looks just like mine so I think/hope that it will lighten up ..... =)

I was fortunate to be a redhead mother of 4 redheads, all have different eye color, but the hair is definatly red. Although 3 of my children have children of their own only one of the grandkchildren has red hair like her dad. My youngest granddaughter (6 mo) has red highlights, but don't think it's going to be red, maybe auburn, but not a true red.

Hi! I have red hair, as do all 3 of my children,aged 14;12+10;(their dad's a redhead too,so guess there wasn't much option!) interestingly, all 3 have a slightly different shade.
