My son is about to be 5 years old and he is growing leg hair. Isn't it a little early for that to be happening?

Completely normal. My 6 year old daughter has hair on her arms and legs. Lisa is right: We are mammals.

It's normal to have hair on their arms and legs, my 5 year old has both it's just blonde so it's not too noticable.

My 16 month old son has hairs on his legs, I never thought anything of it - I assumed it was normal.

No my 18month old has a mustache....lol
im sure it is strong genetics that he has hair right now...or that they are just getting darker.

Mine is two, and he's got fine blond hair all over his legs. Like Michelle said, it's always been there -- it's just now getting more noticeable.
