Britney Budhi was surprised when she welcomed her baby daughter – not only because the little one was three weeks early, but also due to the fact she was born covered in black hair. Little Teyana’s striking appearance led to mum Britney giving her the nickname of ‘monkey.’
The hairdresser, from Sydney, said: ‘I knew it was possible for babies to be born with lots of body hair but I wasn’t expecting it. When she came out, I even joked that she looked like a little monkey. Some people took that as ᴀ ᴍᴇᴀɴ ᴄᴏᴍᴍᴇɴᴛ – but I thought it was super cute.
The 29-year-old and her partner Tariq Ladhani, 36, welcomed their daughter by ᴄᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ on September 16 2021.

You’re probably used to seeing longer strands of terminal hair and short strands of vellus hair on your body. But these aren’t the only types of hair common to humans. There’s another type called lanugo. Lanugo is the hair that covers the body of some newborns. This downy, unpigmented hair is the first type of hair that grows from hair follicles. It can be found everywhere on a baby’s body, except on the palms, lips, and soles of the feet.
Most fetuses develop lanugo around the fourth or fifth month of pregnancy. But the hair is usually not present by the time of birth. It often sheds around the seventh or eighth month of pregnancy, although it can linger and shed weeks after birth. Lanugo at birth is more common in ᴘʀᴇᴍᴀᴛᴜʀᴇ babies.
