A. This baby body or facial hair will shed away on its own as the baby grows older. You need not worry much about this. If required you can use pure turmeric paste , a naturally prepared one without chemicals and use it while bathing in a very small amount. But always do a patch test for one part of the skin for two or three days and if no severe reaction is seen on the skin u can regularly use it.
