Here's the thing... babies are bald. It's a fact of life. Sure, some babies are born with a full head of hair, but it's not the norm. So, the fact that there is actually a market out there for BABY WIGS has me a little puzzled and irrationally irritated. The wigs, called "Baby Bangs" are out there so that your infant doesn't look "too bald" in photos. Seriously. If you're getting photos taken of your kid, don't you want to remember them how they actually looked at the time?!? Apparently there are some mothers out there who don't.

Now, don't get me wrong, the babies in the example photos on Baby Bangs' website look absolutely adorable, but they looked adorable before the faux-hair, too. It's not a traditional wig, I guess. Instead it's a head band with fake hair attached to it. Whatever, it's still stupid and I still hate the idea.

According to Baby Bands' website, these wigs are magic!

At Baby Bangs! we believe in the beauty of childhood. Our unique designs are sprinkled with MAGIC! ~inspiring a world of whimsical wonder and mystical magical memorable moments for you and your baby girl to cherish Forever! For she is, and always will be,
Your LiTTLe PRINCESS!

You have got to be kidding me...

I think my beef with this product is totally legitimate. I was, in fact, a very bald baby. People often mistook me for a boy. My parents, at one point, taped a pink bow to my head so people would stop calling me a "he". Frankly, the bow was a bit much, but if they had done this to me I probably still wouldn't be speaking to them.
