Baby hair loss at 4 months old


Hi ladies,

My LO was born with lots of hair and everyone has always commented on how it's never fallen out, as apparently it's pretty normal for newborns to lose their hair.

The thing is she has started losing it now. It started looking thinner about a week ago and she now has a few patches where her hair looks to be going completely.

Is this still normal and ok at her age or is it something to be concerned about?

Thanks x

Yes most babies lose a lot of their hair at some point inthe first 6 months; my LO had this then I trimmed his hair closely as part of my plan for dealing with his cradle cap; it has grown back now but is all patchy and he is bald on top xx

My LO had beautiful dark auburn hair, now what is coming through is a dull dark ash brown colour and it is all patchy as well

Thomas lost a lot of hair when he was smaller. He had gorgeous dark hair with warm highlights. Now he only has one spot on his head where his hair is growing, at the front middle. The rest is patchy and thin and wispy. He looks like he has a lot of hair in pictures but it's an illusion!

And he also rubs a lot of hair off in bed.

I think Maia is rubbing it off now she's moving around her cot more in her sleep. Summer rain Maia's hair was a lovely auburn colour too. I don't know how it will grow back. I am fair and DH is dark but could be different to both of us. We both have some red in the family too x
