My daughter is half Chinese. I am Caucasian. She was born with thick looking, dark hair that seemed to grow like a weed and was very Chinese looking. As she has grown older, she looks more like me and her hair has gotten lighter, finer and has not been growing very quickly. I have not been worried about it because her health is fine. My in laws have started picking on the issue constantly and tell me that I need to give her fish oil and make her eat more and stop breastfeeding her because they think that she is malnutritioned. I have stood up to their critique but I have also let it bother and worry me. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this and if anyone has heard that this can be a problem. My daughter eats like a toddler. She still breastfeeds quite a bit everyday. I give her vitamin D drops when we don't go outside or when it is not very sunny but that's the only supplement she gets. I really feel that he hair is ok and that it is just the way it is and that it will be fine and that nothing can "make it thick" but I have been questioned so much and I'm starting to doubt my instincts. Can anyone chime in here?
Thanks for your help!
