  • No, not all babies do, some do, some don't. I think it's usually in about the first 3-6 months that this happens.

  • babies don't lose hair. what happens is their heads grow so fast that it ends up looking thinner. but no baby actually loses their hair

  • My daughter never lost her hair. It did get thinner when she was about 3 months but she still had a lot more than most babies we know. It thickened back up when she was about 9 months old and got curly : )

  • I had 5 babies, and NONE of them LOST their hair, especially not all of it. One lost a little (very little), but for the most part, it just got lighter and lighter and more kept growing - but the did NOT LOSE their hair. I think people who spout that are crazy. Mine didn't even have the rubbed-bald spot on the backs of their heads.
