Cute Eight-Month-Old Baby Fas So Much Hair Look Like A Doll
Tiny Bella Cole ᴡᴇɪɢʜs just 11lbs – and her impressive head of hair makes people think she’s a DOLL while others compare her to Boo from the hit Hᴏʟʟʏᴡᴏᴏᴅ movie Monsters Inc. An eight-month-old baby has so much hair that strangers think she’s wearing a wig.
Tiny Bella Cole ᴡᴇɪɢʜs just 11lbs – and her impressive head of hair makes people think she’s a DOLL. She even gets compared to the girl called Boo from the hit Hᴏʟʟʏᴡᴏᴏᴅ movie Monsters Inc. Bella’s besotted mum Phillipa Rabbitts, 27, can’t take her out ᴡɪᴛʜᴏᴜᴛ ʙᴇɪɴɢ sᴛᴏᴘᴘᴇᴅ ʙʏ sᴛʀᴀɴɢᴇʀs ᴀsᴋɪɴɢ if her hair is real?
Philippa, from Chelmsford, Essex, said: “I had a ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ when Bella was born, and the first thing the sᴜʀɢᴇᴏɴ said was, ‘she’s got a lot of hair!’ I just thought, ‘what the hell?’ – I was expecting her to be covered from head to toe, but then I saw this massive mop of black hair on her head. She was only 4lbs 11 when she was born and three weeks early, and with this thick, dark hair she looked just like a little doll.”
Bella is tiny for her age and is currently ᴜɴᴅᴇʀɢᴏɪɴɢ ᴛᴇsᴛs to fin out why.
“All the midwives came to have a look at her afterwards, they’d never seen such a hairy newborn before – she was quite an attraction! She absolutely loves having it washed and brushed, I give her a little head massage too and she loves it. We have to tie it up because it gets in her eyes, but it doesn’t faze her. It takes a while to brush and style – I have to get all the knots out, and then when I’m trying to tie it up she won’t sit still!”
“I spend longer on her hair than I do on my own – it takes twice as long. But she’s ᴘʀᴇᴛᴛʏ ᴄʜɪʟʟᴇᴅ ᴏᴜᴛ, everyone’s always touching it so she’s used to it being played with. At night we’ll see her ʙʀᴜsʜɪɴɢ it out of her face, and when it’s down she flicks it out of her eyes like a little diva. The only thing she’s not keen on his a hairdryer, so for now I tend to towel try it – it’s so thick so it takes a long time to try, so I’m trying to get her used to it!”
Little Bella, who has a tube to help her feed after having trouble with a bottle as a newborn, is currently ᴜɴᴅᴇʀɢᴏɪɴɢ ᴛᴇsᴛs to find out why she is so small.
“I always get asked if she’s wearing a wig, and if her ʙᴜɴᴄʜᴇs ᴀʀᴇ sᴛᴜᴄᴋ on. No matter where we go we get stopped at least five times because of her hair – everyone’s first reaction is just like, ‘oh my God, is that real? With her bunches, people say she looks just like Boo from Monsters Inc – it’s a little nickname for her now.”
Philippa said she thinks cute Bella has inherited her dark locks and her dad Matthew Cole’s thick hair.
She added: “Matt has really think ginger hair that goes curly when it’s wet, and I’m very dark – so I think she gets her hair from both of us. Her hair is either really curly or a big wild mane when it’s first washed, so to tame it we have to keep it ᴛɪᴇᴅ ʙᴀᴄᴋ – ᴏᴛʜᴇʀᴡɪsᴇ it just goes all over the place. It really needs a cut – the longest bit now is down to her shoulders – but I’m reluctant to cut it. I want it to grow and grow, and get as long as possible.
