Pediatrician, Neonatology 's  Response
I have gone through your complaints.
I am happy that you are having a very healthy child and your care towards her.
What I want to say is just wait and watch and nothing to worry
Dont try to remove her hair. For some babies it is a normal phenomenon.
It can be mostly familial.
Infact hair is a protective organ and maintains your baby body temperature.
Don't worry about your baby colour. All babies will be fair at birth but they will come to their genetically determined colour in few months.
Thank you. Good day. Plan for healthy complementary feeds.

Pediatrician Dr. Synthyia Bhagat's  Response
Thanks for your query.
I appreciate your concern.
Relax,this is normal in some babies and hair will get thinned out with time.
Apply some breast milk over her face with cotton 2 to 3 times a day.
Give her proper nutrition.fruit juices,vegetable puree.wheat and rice porridge.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless
