My 13 month old DD has very fine hairs on her legs...

Which I find somewhat ironic given that she doesn't have huge amounts on her head! DS's legs are completely smooth and I've never seen this before on other babies (not that I get close enough to look - the hairs really are quite fine). I am assuming this is just a hormone surge but wonder if anybody else's children had this????

Don't all children have hair on their legs, just like all adults (who haven't shaved/waxed)?!

Do they really? I shall go off and check DS's legs more carefully!

All my dcs have hairy legs, arms, and shoulders. Very fine and downy but there.

um...we have evolved from Furry Creatures.
Hair is a leftover trait from that.
Tis normal

my dd has always had quite hairy legs, bless her! she was born with loads of hair on her head tho, and like me its thick. think she's going to have to shave EVERY day like me when shes older!

My ds has fine blonde hair on his arms and legs, has done since birth, even though his actual hair on his head is brown, although he doesn't have that much of it! I assume it's normal.
