A trick of the trade #4

>> Thursday, April 5, 2012

I do believe that as long as I birth babies, I will be birthing bald babies. Which is totally fine. Bald babies are just as cute as follicly unchallenged babies. But, when it comes to bald baby girls, that means no hair to clip cute little hair clips in. Which is also ok. Because, of course, there are ways around such "problems".

Luckily, other moms shared their trick with attaching bows to bald baby girls. You see, all you need is a little bit of corn syrup or glue. (Yes...glue.)

See this here bow attached on my sweet baby girls head when she was 4 months old? It was attached with one of the two.
I started out with corn syrup. But, long story short, it was messy....and it didn't come off very easily. So then I moved on to glue. Now, before you possibly judge me, know that it is just regular old non-toxic, washable, Elmer's glue. And only a tiny little dab does the trick. With a tiny little bit of water, it comes right off. (Or sometimes, it comes off quite naturally)

So with a little bit of ribbon, and a tiny dab of glue (or corn syrup if you like sticky messes), your sweet bald baby girl can be properly adorned, too.

**It should be noted that I have heard of other components to use to attach the bows, but these were the two that I felt most comfortable with.

She is such a cutie! I wish I'd known about this trick when I had my bald daughter. We used KY gel which was incredibly embarrassing to admit when people asked . . . and they ALWAYS asked. :)

Thanks! She is almost 16 months now and looking at this picture makes me a little sad that she's grown up so fast!
And yes, they do always ask! Which is why I completely avoided the KY gel option! I've decided if I get the opportunity again to have a bald girl and people ask how I stick the bows to her head I'd tell them a hot glue gun just to see their response :)

KY jelly works well. That's what they used at the hospital on our daughter.
