Hairy Child, I have a (9) nine month old son who has grown a lot of pubic hair around his penis, on his actual scrotum and even into his anal area. I have heard that many thing are due to heredity. For instance, my husband is a well endowed man and my son is already showing signs of being overly large compared to other little boys his age. My husband works for the US Government and is not available right now to have a discussion to find out if he was possibly a hairy little boy at (9) nine months. I decided that taking a picture and sending it to him was out of the question so, I don't know if he was or not. I hate to admit this but, since we are all here to help each other I will. I have been extremely hairy as far back as I can remember, to the point of other Girls making fun of me in gym class and even grossing out a few so called boyfriends. They seemed to run screaming at the sight of a completely natural full bush pubic area on a girl. I shaved it once and it was horrible (bumps and itchy). I decided that any man that was worth having as a husband would have to deal with it and I found (probably) the one man in the world that actually got turned on by how hairy my Pubic area is and has always told me to never even trim it. Now to my actual question, is a (9) nine month old being hairy something that I need to make an appointment to see a doctor about and if so (using the Military Doctor's) what specialty would I try to make the appointment with? I don't know if a Pediatrician would be able to help or at least tell me that it is OK.
I really appreciate you taking time to read this and being willing to respond back to my questions.

Thanks, I called the Base Appointments Desk and as usual unless it is life or death, they will see him the second week of June. That is pretty normal here, I wish we could use civilian but, the hospital isn't considered to need to let us do that. I will never fully understand the whole Military Spouse thing but, my husband says it is what it is because he isn't here to take Ian in. With Ian's hair growth, I don't even take him to church anymore because I would be concerned that they might need to change his diaper and who knows what they would think. As for letting you know what the Dr. says, I will do that so maybe it can help someone else, surely Ian isn't the only one that has this problem. Thanks for you advise.

That doesn't sound normal . There might be a problem with his hormones bc the growth of pubic hair is related to the onset of hormones brought on by puberty. I would take to your dr ASAP bc if his hormone levels are out of whack it could lead to much more serious problems then hair growth. I'm interested to see what's going on ... Would u post after figuring out what's causing the hair growth? Good luck!

Thank you so much, that is what I love about being in the circle of Mom's, there are so many great people and I have gotten great answers like yours. I don't think non parents get that children don't come with an instruction manual. Thanks Again, Stephanie

Go have him checked by a doctor. Being hairy right before puberty and after is normal. Not normal in a 9 month old.
