If you had heartburn did your newborn have hair?

With my son the old wives tale came true just wondered how many other mommas were that way.

  • I had heartburn and my dd had a LOT of hair! My friend didn't have heartburn at all (lucky duck) and her baby had a bald head. Not so much as even a little fuzz on his head.

  • I have had terrible heart burn with all of mine (six) and the first four were practically bald. My 5th & 6th had some hair but not a whole lot. I had heartburn so bad with all of them that I could even get it from drinking a glass of water. I lived on Tums the last few months, each time.

  • I assume this one will have lots as well then becuase the heartburn is kicking my butt (9 months preg)

  • I ALWAYS have horrible heartburn EXCEPT when I'm pregnant. Something about being pregnant makes my heart burn go way.
    However, both my children where born with hair - TONS of hair. But it's genetic, it has nothing to do with heartburn lol
    My sister had heartburn so bad it put her in the hospital - 4 kids - no hair! So my guess is, it has something to do with the fathers genes lol
