    Yep, a good way to do it. Just don’t try to do it all at once!

    I don’t think that’s a new thing. Hasn’t she been a red-head from almost the beginning?

    I checked. See, this is the strip a few minutes after she was born. If you look closely she has red hair on her head: http://www.gocomics.com/stonesoup/2007/07/08
    Maybe you are thinking of Mimi from Rose is Rose who can walk and talk but is still bald.

    My eldest was bald as an egg until she was two. I had to be careful not to put her in blue if we were going out.

    @snarkm

    You are, of course, correct. I don’t know why I never noticed it before.

    My cousin too :-). My aunt was on the edge of despair that she would ever grow hair. My aunt is one of those women who heard that she was going to get a girl and immediately bought frilly dresses and bows and ribbons for the hair.

    I don’t understand the “not put her in blue”. And how does that color relate to lack of hair?

    I think it’s because everybody immediately assumes that a bald kid has to be male, because god forbid a girl has anything less than a full head of hair with curls or a bow in it ;-).

    That’s why they put one of those cute baby headbands on a baby girl with no hair. When my sister was a baby back in 1968 she had a very tiny bit of very blonde hair so she looked bald so my mom put a tiny pink barrette in her hair. They didn’t have those cute headbands back then.

    snarkm is right, below; people mistake your baby for a boy so easily, and blue clothing makes it worse. My first daughter had very short, fine blonde hair as a baby, and she was dressed in a red velvet dress around Christmastime. A nice elderly gentleman — who I guess didn’t notice the skirt, just the primary color — commented on my baby’s attractive looks — “what a shame it’s not a girl.”

    those headbands look like a rubberband around a baby’s head – so silly -

    Parents color-code their babies, add headbands, etc. as a way of avoiding the constant “is it a boy or a girl” question.
