  • It's perfectly fine and normal for babies to lose hair. It will not be a permanent loss though. People in general lose an average of 10 strands of hair a day but we just don't pay attention or notice.

  • This is normal. When babies are born much of the time the scalp isn't tough enough to hold the folicles in place. Some may fall out but don't fret mommy. It'll be back! :)

  • Some kids lose all their hair, then it grows back totally different than before.

  • Sounds normal to me. My daughter lost all her dark black hair she was born with and now has a soft browinsh red hair color.

  • That's normal. My DD had sooooo much dark hair when she was born. Then it all fell out. When it finally grew back (around a year or so), it was almost white. Most babies lose their hair. Nothing to worry about! :)
