Is hairloss for a 22 month old normal?

My 22 month old daughter has been losing her hair. I wasn't worried about it until I noticed how bare the back of her head was. She has never had a lot of hair but enough. Anyone else experienced this?

  • Don't get excited mom, she's just losing her baby hair. It will grow back.

  • I'd probably ask your pediatrician about it. 22 months seems a bit late to be losing baby hair. can't hurt to simply ask and make sure.
