Fake hair for babies? Say what???General — By Shannon Schmid on October 4, 2009 at 12:24 am
People I just have to share the insanity that is “Baby Bangs.”
The basic idea is that instead of just putting a headband on your lovely baby girl, you can put a headband on her that has hair sewn in it!!! No matter that your darling baby has only a few wisps of hair naturally – you can fake out all your friends & relatives and take pictures of her with a wig on!!!
Look, I understand wanting to know what your baby will look like when her hair grows in. I have often looked at our daughter and imagined different kinds of hair on her. But never in my craziest moment would I put a WIG on my baby while we walked around the mall!
I think this is really crazy. And frankly I worry for the babies that are put through this. What kind of mom is so obsessed with outward appearances, and others ideas of beauty that they subject an infant to a hair piece?? What kind of messages is that poor baby going to get when she grows up, if you can’t wait for her to reach toddler hood, before you start making her your own little fashion accessory?
It’s one thing for a child who has lost their hair to illness to want something to replace that part of themselves. But to market hair pieces to babies who legitimately haven’t grown any hair yet? Spend your money on better things- like the therapy your daughter is going to need growing up in a house that thinks this is okay!!!!
Honest to goodness people. Nuts. Nuts I tell you!!!
