Is baby hair loss normal?

When he was born, he had a full head of dark hair. Now, our son is losing hair all over the place... I run my hand over his hair and a lot falls out... I looked at pictures from a few months ago and he now is looking like he is going to have just about no hair left. And it's not just where it rubs in the car seat or when he sleeps. Is that normal?

  • Yup, my mom says it happened to me. I was born with TONS of thick dark hair, and then it all fell out. It will grow back, don't worry!
