  • Both my babies lost all their hair around 3-5 months. DS was almost a year and a half by the time he got a full, even head of hair (he was bald on top!) DD (11m/o) has finally got a full head of hair. Both of them were dark brown at birth, and DS is blond and DD is strawberry blond.

  • probably. most babies lose the hair on the back of their head from laying on it.

  • Many babies lose most of the hair they're born with. Mine both also kept rubbing off a big spot on the back of their heads so it didn't grow back for awhile. Normal.

  • Yes. It will grow back.

  • Yup, all three lost theirs by then. I'm not entirely sure why, but my first two were completely bald for a while. lol! It'll grow back... and surprisingly enough, it could be a totally different color and texture than it was before. All mine got their hair back by their first birthday.

  • My son was born with dark hair and it all fell out. Now at ten months he has dishwater blonde hair.
