Hi mamas,

My beautiful daughter is going to turn 3 in November. She is really healthy, petite (25# now) but rarely ill, great energy. She is still nursing. Her teacher called me today to let me know that some of her hair came out (not ripped out, just pulled out) when another child pulled her hair. The teacher said that Linnea wasn't hurt or bothered at all, and showed her how it doesn't hurt by pulling some of her hair out! 

 

The teacher is concerned that there is a problem....I have only had boys with very short hair, and this is new for me. Her hair is soft and fluffy and has never been thick. Could it be that she is just shedding baby hair and getting big girl, thicker hair? Could it be seasonal? 


Does anyone else know about this? I don't want to be reactionary and take her to our family practitioner before checking out what's normal for other kids. Thanks!
