It takes 32-year-old Chelsea Noon two hours to do her shopping, and it isn't because of her grocery list. As she walks through the aisles with her now 9-week-old son Junior Cox-Noon, people walking opposite of them do a double take and can't help but comment on her baby's full head of hair.


The couple has nicknamed him Baby Bear for his incredible mane, though Chelsea says that he's more like a little gremlin when he gets fussy.

Chelsea, who luckily used to be a professional hairdresser, has to blow-dry his hair after giving him a bath because it takes too long to air dry.

"He hasn’t lost any [hair]- there’s none in the cot, none in his little chair or the pram, it’s literally just growing and it grows out not down so it sticks up."

"The doctors say they are amazed and have never seen a baby with so much hair in all the time they have been working. Everyone’s shocked," she told Daily Mirror.

On whether she plans on giving Baby Bear a haircut anytime soon, she says, "I definitely don’t want to cut it, I want to see how long it actually does grow out. I don’t know where his hair has come from it’s like a big ball of candy floss."

Baby Bear was a whopping 10 pounds when he was born, and put an end to Chelsea's desires of having any more children.


"His head got stuck so they had to call the emergency people in so they were screaming at me to push and I just couldn’t get him out, he ripped me and then his head got out, then his shoulders got stuck and I lost a litre of blood so it was quite traumatic.

Then obviously they weighed him and found out he was 10lbs and that’s probably why.

He’s about 13.5 lbs now. Usually they lose a bit, but he didn’t he gained some.

But this is the last one baby Junior, I’m not having another one - it would probably be a 12 pounder."
