The back-to-sleep campaign might have helped Madeline get to the ripe old age of 21 months, but frankly, it isn’t doing anything for her looks. First, there was the baby bald spot. Now, every morning, she wakes up with a frizzy mat of hair on the back of her head. Sometimes it appears to be threatening to turn into a dreadlock.
Sometimes, after I’ve dampened and detangled her hair in the morning, the Hair Mat™ will re-appear after sitting a spell in the carseat. Argh! I can just hear the other parents at the grocery store thinking "why didn’t that woman brush her child’s hair?" … if they only knew!
