I’m not sure how old your baby is, but I think they recognize your voice and smell as well.  She probably wouldn’t make strange for too long, if at all?

If I recall correctly I did a pretty drastic hair change when DS was an infant…. Pretty sure it went fine. I think that if he reacted traumatically I’d have remembered. lol

I’d go with it ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you’re BFing, just make sure the chemicals won’t be harmful. cosmeticsdatabase.com is a good place to start.

I just cut all my hair off into a short pixie style and my hasn’t blinked an eye at the change (hair was about shoulder length).  DS is 5-1/2 months.  I think they fixate on our faces and voices more than other things for identifying us.

From my experience, if a baby sees you all the time they know your face well enough not to care about a hair colour change. With my niece, I would pull my hair back, straighten it, have it wrapped up in a towel after a shower… and it made no difference; she still knew who I was even though she was just an infant.

It won’t matter to the baby. I wish I could pull off pink hair or I’d totally do it, if anything my daughter would probably get a kick out of it!

On a semi-related note, I read on one of those Baby Weekly Emails that baby (our 6 month babies!) notices changes in his/her environment now . So if  you move the furniture, they will notice. We moved the bed against the wall the other day and I swear baby took a double take the first time we walked by the room with the new look. ๐Ÿ™‚
