  •'s not at all uncommon for the hair that was there at birth to disappear. Mine was born with black hair that fell out.

  • Yes I know a lot of babies that have lost their hair.

  • Yes. 3 of my 4 ended up losing almost all of their newborn hair. One actually looked like Charlie Brown until he was a year old! :)

  • LOL yes! My poor little guy lost all his hair on top at that age. But don't fear, he is 8 months old now and it's been back for months.

  • Totally! You can't always tell, as new hair often grows in pretty quickly. The only way I can really tell is by seeing all the hair left in his bassinet each morning. :)

  • Completely normal. Some but not all babies will lose their "newborn" hair by 4 mos and start growing their "kid" hair. 2 of my 5 did that, the first and the last ones, the 3 in the middle kept their hair. Good luck!!

  • Yep. My son has a third the hair he was born with at 3 months.
