I was changing Zack's diaper the other day and lo-and-behold, there's a pube growing on the right side of his scrotum!!

What in the world???
It's 2 hairs growing from the same hole/pore/follicle.....
At first I thought an eyelash of mine had fallen onto his little self but then when I tried to get it off I saw that it was attached!!

That's just weird, isn't it?
Should I call the doctor?

The daughter of one of my mom's friends suggested that maybe it was due to my hormones since Zack's breastfed - ya reckon?


I need some input - I even want to pull it out but I don't want to hurt him!

I hafta admit my reaction when i first saw this thread was and a lil chuckle! Sorry
I don't think that it is anything to do with breastfeeding, imo. What it sounds like it could be to me is maybe a birthmark that hasn't totally shown up yet may be about to arise? KWIM? Sometimes moles and birthmarks produce black hairs...only thing that i can think of-sry. I would probably ask your Dr about it next time he is in for a well baby check up though.

I also doubt it has to do with breastfeeding. Breastfeeding doesn't speed up puberty, not by 12 years or so anyway. I'd ask the doc too, hope it doesn't worry you too much!

I would wait and ask the doctor. And in the meantime not worry about it.

If you can't wait that long does your ped have a nurse line? You could just call and see what they want you to do? Logan was born mark free but by 1 month he started to develop a light brown spot on his leg. Of course I freaked but they told me it was a birth mark and that sometimes they don't appear right away.

I'm sure it's nothing to worry about, but if you're like me, you'll call the doctor just to get their opinion and advice.
