Baby Hair loss??

My baby boy (5 weeks old) has recently started going bald. Okay, not totally..but his hairline is receding pretty quick.  Do all babies go through this?

Re: Baby Hair loss??

  • Not all, but it's really common. My poor little guy lost all the hair on top of his head and at his temples at about 3 weeks old. It's starting to come back now (he's 7 weeks now). Some babies lose it all and it can grow back a completely different color or texture. Just part of the fun of babies...they like to throw you for a loop.

  • DD1 was born with a full head of hair and never lost any of it. We started haircuts at 10 months with her.

    DD2 was also born with hair, but has lost quite a bit and has some spots that are now pretty long and some spots that are just fuzz.

    It really depends on the baby

  • I agree with above. DS. 2 born with full hair. Never lost a bit. It's so long now.

    wow, look at that head full of hair!
  • I think it happens. DD lost some hair at the back and then at the side when she was younger. Probably due to sleeping/ lying down a lot. Now she has thick and long hair. ;)
  • DS was born with a full head of dark hair. Within the first few months, he lost it all and was completely bald for nearly a year. Then his hair grew back but much lighter. He's almost blonde now! I think it's normal for babies to lose their hair.

  • Yep, pretty normal. Our LO was born with a full head of very fine, reddish hair... within the first two months most of that fell out (except a small fringe at the neck) and came back in thicker and more of a light brown.
