Have you experienced baby hair loss at 4-months old or later?

My four month old daughter's hair appears to be thinning. She was born with a nice full head of hair and I would have thought it would have fallen out by now if it was going to. Have any of you experinced hair loss 4 months or later?

  • Yep it's fine, babies can lose their hair anywhere within the first 6 months.

  • My daughter was born with hair, lost it and has hair again. She is 7 months old. It's normal.

  • Kristal . . just from sleeping and rolling back and forth, their hair can come out. THe same thing is going on with my dd. The whole day she is off of her back, but hell . . . little babies sleep like 9-10 hours a night and so this is when they lose their hair . . . but it should start going away soon . . I hope so, I love my little lady's full head of hair . . . I want it to start thickening rather than thinning.
