My son is three months old and he is losing his hair. I change his bed sheets every day because it is filled with his hair. Is this normal at this age? Is there something possibly wrong? Any suggestions?

Hi guys . I don't think losing hair at 3 months old is normal-- it indicates lack of vitamin D. Vitamin D gives good hair growth, strong nails. This is particularly true for babies born in winter, babies that don't have a chance to be in sunlight very often. My baby was born in October --- also due to our climate here, there is not much sun - so my paediatrician recommends giving baby Vitamin D every day until summer time. And it does help, my son has full head of hair and never lost any. His hair grows so quickly and is thick and strong !

its pretty normal, thats around the same time by boy started losing his hair too, it was really thin, and only the very top hairs stayed on because he obvs doesn't sleep on the top of his head ;) it looked funny hehe so we had to give him a little buzz cut... he's 9 months now and his hair is still pretty thin, starting to grow back a bit. i wouldn't worry

It is NORMAL. Both my sons had ickle bald patches on the back of their heads when they were babies ( so cute). They now have a full head of hair so no need to worry. xxxx

also if its on the back of the head it could be hair loss from his head rubbing the fabric under his head, its normal

My 3 month old son is losing his hair fast and a lot at a time I thought it was dog hair on my bed and it was where I had laid him down for a few min. I thought something was wrong him losing it like that, just falling out.. It looks like he has a go-tee in the back and little bit of nothing in the front now. Thank you all for you experiences..

I agree its normal.. i used to put a silk piece of material on the top part of the mattress as it decreased the amount of hair loss.. it worked for me. if your worried its worth a shot. x

All my kids lost most of their baby hair. It is normal. It seemed like forever before my oldest grew his hair back. The other 2 didn't lose all their hair, but most of it. Their hair seems to be growing back in nicely. BTW, my oldest had lost all his hair by 3 months as well, and it was several months before it started to grow back. He now has fairly thick beautiful hair.

It's very normal. My son lost all but a mohawk when he was that age. And he shed about the same, too. My mom said I did it when I was a baby, too. I wouldn't worry about it. New hair is starting to sprout on my baby and instead of dark brown, it's a strawberry blonde.

It is so normal. My 3 month old just lost the top portion of his hair. He looks so funny, he has long hair in back and peach fuzz on the top. My 3 yr old lost all of his coal black hair at that age and it grew back blond. My 5 yr old lost his blond hair and it came back dark brown. He could be changing hair color.
