Baby wigs have been in the news recently, what with all the parents out there who hate having their bald baby girls mistaken for boys. I hope you are not one of them. Lauren, another Babble blogger, wrote a great piece about how her bald baby girl is BEAUTIFUL.
I mean, it’s fine to get a little pissy when someone ignores the bright pink bow adorning your baby’s dress and asks, “What’s the little fellow’s name?” But you should not get annoyed enough to seek out a baby hairpiece!
If you do, just be aware, you are an SNL parody commercial come to life.
If you really want to distract from your baby’s baldness (girl or boy), here are 20 adorable hats and headbands that are WAY CUTER than a miniature toupee.

It doesn't get any cuter than a long-eared bunny, except when that bunny's a BABY!

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention a simple bear hat. I don't know what it is about bear ears on a baby but it's damn cute.
Cabbage Patch Kid Wig 20 of 20
I know I said I wouldn't mention wigs. But this isn't a serious wig. It's a throwback to the eighties and I think it might be Harlow's Halloween costume this year.
