  • My little girl's hair fell out in a line at the back of her head where she rubbed it off also. But she was born with darker brown hair, and it started to fall out at about 3 months but only on the sides. The top continued to grow but just lightened. She is 5 months now and it is growing back light blonde on the sides

  • I think around a week old, I would rub my son's hair and it would fall out in my hands. The only one of my babies to noticeably loose any hair was the one with the least amount, he had a little fuzz and then was completely bald for a month or so before new hair grew in. My daughter was born with a lot of hair and kept it all at least until it started getting rubbed off in the back when she was about 3-4 months old.

  • my son's hair started falling out a couple months after he was born. they call it newborn hair because it falls out so new permanent hair can grow. his hair is growing now. he has a little bit of hair. he's 10 months old now.
