Help! Encouraging my Daughters curls

Hi. My 9 month old DD has a lovely set of waves that have began to curl rather nicely around her ears. I was wondering how to encourage them to curl. My DH has very curly hair, probably a 3A and i would love for her to have this hair as mine is very straight and heavy. My DS who is almost 2 has a definite wave and the odd ringlet but overall no curls. My DD's hair appears much curlier than my son's ever was. How can i style and encourage these curls? Also do you think it will curl and stay that way? here are a few pics to show you what her hair is like :)<P>74342_10151404412578142_985191956_n.jpg971689_10151656967013142_716477103_n.jpg1003114_10151706115023142_1318628889_n.jpg

    Hi !! Your daughters are beatiful , you should buy a really mild shampoo ,better if its is for curly hair , second a conditioner with emolients and I dont think you need a cream ; but leave-in would be great !!

    Also , because your daughters dont have to much hair , use your fingers smooth when they have conditioner (ONLY) detangle whit conditioner .

    I hope this works , its really easy to stle curly hair in kids , Im still try to figure out my hair , because nobody helps me . Im 17 , so you are really good mom. :D

    Your little girl is adorable! It's great that you are working with and encouraging her natural hair. I'm 19 and I wish my mom did that for me lol.

    It's possible as she ages and by the time she has gone through puberty that her hair will have changed some more.

    Good luck bringing out her curls! :)
