NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There’s some outrage in the parenting world about what could be the latest accessory for infants: Wigs.
Some babies have it and some don’t, and there are some parents going to great lengths to make sure their baby has a full head of hair.
As CBS 2′s Emily Smith reported Tuesday, a company called baby-bangs.com makes that happen with wigs for infants. They come in an array of colors and styles to suit all different bald babies.
Online baby bloggers and other social media sites have taken issue with the accessory. Some local parents also had plenty to say about it.
“I don’t feel like babies should be subjected to wearing wigs just yet. They’re just babies,” a mom told Smith.
“I think kind of the charm of a new baby is the little bird fuzz that they have,” said another woman.
“Is it made out of real hair?” one man wondered.
The product is made of silky strands of a man-made fiber, according to the company’s website. It’s a simple hair and headband accessory.
Some people would be better off just having pets.
