  • I don't know how true this is but I had heartburn almost every night towards the end & my daughter didn't have a lot of hair. She's 8 months now & its just filling in.

  • Nope not true

  • Not true, my daughter was born with a head full of hair, I had no heartburn or morning sickness, it was a perfect pregnancy.

  • This is an old wives tale, but I believe it. Granted there will ALWAYS be exceptions to every rule. Everyone we've know that had heart burn had babies with heads full of hair.

  • I've had horrible, TERRIBLE heartburn with every single one of my pregnancies (and I'm about to give birth for the fifth time) and every single one of my children had very little hair. I don't think the hairiness of the child has anything to do with the mother experiencing heartburn.

  • It's actually a myth but ironically I had heartburn when my babies had a lot of hair.

  • its totally not true and for the people that says they believe it bc it happened to them, is just an off chance it happened to them... heartburn has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with your baby... i hate the old wives tales, they drive me nuts

  • It's probably not really true, but I had terrible heartburn with both pregnancies and both my babies were born with lots of hair. Coincidence?

  • I do not know if it is true but I know I had tons of heartburn with my second baby and he came out with a full head of hair. my frist I had very little heartburn almost want to say none and she came out with hair but just not so much as my second.
