You said "by binding to hemoglobin, 2,3-BPG decreases hemoglobins affinity for oxygen, thereby shifting the entire oxygen-binding curve to the right side." So, if in fetal hemoglobin 2,3-BPG cannot bind that well, wouldn't that increase affinity for oxygen and thus shift it towards the left instead of what you wrote "As a result, fetal hemoglobin will have a lower affinity for oxygen and the oxygen binding curve for fetal hemoglobin will shift towards the left side. "
