3 months is still so little to worry about that. you can buy cute little head bands and hats, but don't worry about her hair... my oldest had SOOO much hair... but even at the age of 1 her hair was shorter... now she has SOOO MUCH HAIR!!!! whereas my younger daughter had longer hair, but her hair NOW barely grows!

No worries about this, so she will be 3 months old and has no hair when she is 3 years old and has no hair then you can worry.

My niece is 10 months and she still has no hair.



My daughters hair is very fine and very blonde but she has lots of it. She didn't have a lot of hair until she was over a year old, and it didn't start to really grow until she was 2. She's now 3 and had maybe 3 hair cuts. Her hair is still no where near as long as alot of girls her age but I have also seen girls her age with alot less hair too.



Genetics also play a big part. I had hardly any hair as a baby and even now my hair hardly grows.

On a good note, they say that the longer it takes for them to grow their hair in, the thicker it will be. Not too sure how true that is but it's something to think about.

This is completely normal my my eldest was born with loads of hair but my youngest was born with hardly any she still didn't have any when she turned 1 I could only just get it in little (and I mean little on the top of her head) pig tails when she started nursery at 3, she is now 6 and has a lovely head of hair so don't worry :-))

Ha, my daughter didn't have hair until after her first birthday. She wasn't ready for her first hair cut until she was near two. Don't worry about it, it will grow eventually.

My daughter was born with a lot of hair. She ended up rubbing the sides and very back hair off so all she had was the hair on the top of her head. Yes. My child had a mohawk. I hated it. But in all honesty, it depends on the child's genetics. I know an 11 month old and a 10 month old that has no hair. It will grow in time.

This is perfectly normal. Some children are born with a lot of hair and then lose it all. Some are born with a lot of hair and don't lose it, and some are born with hardly any and it doesn't grow much until they are 1-2 years of age.
