Hair loss

K. - posted on 05/05/2011 ( 2 moms have responded )




My son was born with hair that was bone straight. He just turned 7 months. He recently at around 5 and a half months started loosing hair at the back of his head but he doesn't sleep on his back and seems to be loosing the straight hair at the sides of his head. Has anyone else experienced this or is this something I need to see my pediatrician about?

Hi my son was born with a full head of hair, he also just turned 7mths and now he has something like a reverse mullet, and he has never slept on his back. As far as i have read baby hair fall out and mature hair grows in its place. This is normal with any baby whether they sleep on their back or not. here is a good article from Baby Center that explains it better than I ever could:

both of my chidren were born with bone straight hair and started losing their hair at the back of their heads. Their hair became curly. The child usually is not born with the hair that will remain depending on their parents hair texture and family hair texture.
