hi she is a very young child. the hair on her body is lanugo hairs and vellus type. it will gradually shed off as she grows. dont worry a lot. use a mild cleanser like episoft for bathing her. u can massage her with coconut oil or olive oil. anyways her skin is very sensitive. so dont overdo. tk care.
