ᴍɪʀᴀᴄʟᴇ ʙᴀʙʏ Born After 8 ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs Has Hair So Thick People Think She’s At Least Two! Little Lottie Batchelor, who has just turned one, sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ her parents emily, 28, and Matthew, 32, when she was born with thick black hair that grew to 10 inches in a year.
Her mum said she didn’t sᴜꜰꜰᴇʀ ᴀ ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙᴜʀɴ, which is what many would think could be the ᴄᴀᴜsᴇ for her baby having so much hair. But she did sᴘᴇᴀᴋ of how she is a ᴍɪʀᴀᴄʟᴇ ʙᴀʙʏ, as she and Matthew had ᴛʀɪᴇᴅ to have a child but had ᴇɪɢʜᴛ ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs. They were told they weren’t going to be ᴀʙʟᴇ ᴛᴏ ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇ ɴᴀᴛᴜʀᴀʟʟʏ, but then they ᴍɪʀᴀᴄᴜʟᴏᴜsʟʏ ꜰᴇʟʟ ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ. Mum Emily explained: “She was born after ᴇɪɢʜᴛ ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs so she’s our little ᴍɪʀᴀᴄʟᴇ ʙᴀʙʏ, we call her lockdown Lottie and she’s one in a ᴍɪʟʟɪᴏɴ. When she was born, I was surprised by how dark her hair was and how much of it there was. I wasn’t expecting it at all. Her hair was the first thing people would notice when they met her; people were always commenting on her hair saying how lucky she was to have so much. She’s never ʟᴏsᴛ any – it’s just got ᴛʜɪᴄᴋᴇʀ ᴀɴᴅ ᴛʜɪᴄᴋᴇʀ.”
Mum Emily added:” Now Lottie’s hair is almost the same length as her six-year-old sister’s evie – with many thinking the one-year-old is a lot older than she actually is. People are sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ when I say that Lottie is only 12-months-old – most people think she’s at least two! I have to use conditioner beᴄᴀᴜsᴇ it gets so frizzy and it takes longer to blow dry her hair than my eldest. It takes about half an hour to dry and 15 minutes to style in the morning; I have to put her fringe up everyday to get it out of the way and I make sure to brush it through. If I don’t take the time to do it in the morning, it’ll be matted by the end of the day. had dark hair when I was born and so did my husband but again, it was nothing like Lottie’s. She’s very lucky to have it and I wish that I had her hair! Lottie’s hair is gradually getting a bit lighter so we think she’ll be blonde in the next year or so. People love seeing her hair.”
