Have you seen those adorable photos of little cute babies with their full heads of fluffy hair? If you haven’t yet, you are going to see them now. You will be hooked.
But do you know why little babies have long hair when they are born? There is nothing weird about it. That hair is called lanugo, and it is there to keep the baby warm. The hair is produced in the womb during the second trimester. When the baby is born, that hair falls out and the new hair starts to grow, vellus hair. But some babies have the lanugo hair longer than other. And they are super cute and adorable.
