How long does it take for newborns to lose their hair?

my DD is almost 3 weeks old and she is losing a tiny bit of hair but not much. i really hope she keeps it all, my sisters both lost pretty much all of their hair a few weeks after they were born. my mom told me i kept most of mine and my DH is kinda hairy. When did your LO lose their hair, if they did at all?

  • haha they don't lose their hair...their head grows faster than the hair does so it creates the illusion that its thinning

  • My daughter never lost any. She came out with a decent amount of hair, and she kept it. She did end up with a big bald streak from one side of her head to the other, though, but that was because of her rolling around a lot in her sleep, I think.
