Normal in infants: Many newborns and young infants are very hairy, especially on the ears, the back and sometimes hands or feet. This is a part of normal development and will go away as she gets older (certainly by 6-12 months). Shaving and hair-removal creams are not safe for babies, so please just wait it out. This normal baby body-hair doesn't tell how much body hair someone will have as an adult.
