i live and work at a motel, i am friends with many of the long term tenents. well today wile cleaning some of the rooms i let my 10 month old go into the room next to the one i was cleaning. they are a couple, i like them, they are very nice and young like my husband and i. after that i went into the laundry room and my son walked to the kitchen to see another lady living here... ok so after this its time to change his diaper and i found 3 or 4 dark wirey hairs that were a few inches long. my heart sank and i am in tears again just thinking about it. i just want to know if anyone else has found anything like this? i need peace of mind really. i talked to my mom and she said it culd be arm pit hair or chest hair but being that i was molested at a young age my first thought was "WTF?! who did i need to beat the crap out of?" i am horrified to think something might of happened to my baby... i dont know what to do

I certainly don't want to diminish your concern but there is a more innocent explanaition. If he is crawling or sitting on the floor in a motel room then I wouldn't be surprised if those hairs found their way into his diaper on their own (or with a little help from him). Little boys are constantly putting their hands into their diapers and if he was crawling around or sitting on the floor and got those hairs on his hands they would've transferred onto his penis because that is the first thing he would've grabbed.

If he wasn't showing any signs of distress when you went and got him then it is more than likely that nothing happened.

When my child was a baby where ever I went she went and the same go's for my son never ever leave your baby with strangers and with day care always check in on them even when your on break at work get a day care close to your job!!

ok. 1st you need to relax. 2nd you need to keep your child with you, in a daycare, or with someone you trust like your mom 3rd if you are that concerned have you baby examined by a doctor 4th and most important.....go get therapy. Obviously you are not dealing with what happened to you as a child and you are not handling it well. you need to seek counseling. Oh and yes I do know what I am talking about. I was molested when I was very small and raped several times when I was in my 20's. I am now married, and have 4 wonderful kids. I worry about things like that but I don't have the reactions that you do. Please don't take this wrong in any way. it wasn't meant to be mean or hurtful just informative.

Since hes a boy, unless there was been any anal, its not likely a doctor can tell you much of anything. If you still have the hairs take those in with you. I have found some very interesting things in my kids diapers, but never pubic hairs.

As for stangers, most children are molested by a person they know and trust, ie family members, or close family friends. You can never be to careful who you leave your children with before they can speak for themselves.

THANK YOU GIRLS! and Deanna i have no hard feelings! :) i would rather some one be blunt and honest with me then to sugar coat it. i am not leaving him with anyone anymore unless it is someone i 100% trust like my mom or bestfriend. thank you guys so much. i dont think he ate id b/c there was no poo and it was on the front of him not the behind but it probly just gotinthere from crawling on the floor. maybe they gave him raspberries on his tummy. we are still getting checked out tho

Could he possibly eaten hair???? My 3 1/2 month old had hair in her diaper (her own though) She puts her hands in her mouth...you know how easy hair can fall out...and how much kids like to put their hands in their mouths...she pooped them out. I will find a few hairs per week...she is NOT around anyone that could or would harm her. I pray that this is just it for your precious child! But just in case, bring him to the Dr...it won't hurt anything, and it will set your mind at ease!

He may have just picked it up from the floor , how long after he was in their room did you chnage his nappy because hair takes hours to pass through the digestive tract sometimes days .

Anyway i hope you find some peace of mind i cant imagine how you are feeling .

How long did you leave him unattended with strangers? If you are very concerned, take him to the doctor. Most likely it's nothing. Use this as a lesson, don't trust your child to strangers, it's a scary world we live in....

My son frequently ends up w/ long, blond hairs on his butt/in his diaper, but that's cuz they are everywhere in this house no matter how much I sweep/vaccuum.....
