yes it is, it happened to my daughter too. she had a FULL head of hair at birth and then it started to thin, but now her hair is long enough for pigtails. what i did was, in the bathtub, i put the soap in her hair, then with a comb, i lightly brushed the thinning spots! and within 2 weeks, it all started to grow back thicker! my sister shared that me.

My daughter lost all her hair except the top...my mother called it an upside down mullet lol. When my hair stopped falling out her's started to grow in. I watched for this sign to see when it would start and sure enough it was on track. Once our hormones level out theirs usually do as well. She is now 8 months old and has a bit more hair then when she was born and it's very thick:)

Yes that's normal! Lots of babies that are born with hair lose in in the first few weeks, and then it will grow back, maybe a different color even. My 9 month old is just starting to grow hair at all lol!
