  • No. I just trimmed my boys' hair (with hairdresser scissors) as short as possible as they started losing the hair they were born with, so you didn't notice the bald patches. I thought buzzing their hair/heads would freak them out at 6-7 months, so I just propped them up in the bathroom sink (so they could see themselves) and gave little trims. :o)

  • I shaved my son's head when he got his balled spots. Nothing bad happend, he just looked like a cancer patient, or like he was just born with no hair. When he was born with a head FULL of hair.
