  • Yes some patches is normal. I wouldn’t shave it but have regularly used the clippers on my youngest and found that the hair turned back more equal and thicker

  • I would leave it as baby hair grows quickly . You will not notice it if you don\’t focus on it too much .

  • Just leave it, it will grow back, its completely normal for babies to lose hair.

  • totally normal – they end up with really funky hair – baldy spots, mohawks its all fun

  • They usually loose the ‘first coat’ and regrow their actual hair colour which can change or be the same.

  • When my girl was about three or four months she started losing her hair. She ended up looking like Gollum! But she grew back a new head of hair really quickly. I wouldn’t worry.

  • Leave it, shaved heads on babies are terrible.

  • Most babies lose there baby hair, mainly from where it rubs on bedding etc. it is very natural. It will grow back, no need to do anything.

  • Lots of babies lose hair in patches where they “wear” it away. It will grow back and even out.

  • Leave it don’t shave. Most babies will have bald spots for losing hair. My daughter currently has one spot about the size of a tennis ball but if you look closely you can see hair starting to grow back. Babies don’t mind at all having bald spots or odd looking hair and I Sony think anyone looking at your baby is going to find when they see the gorgeous face.

  • Leave it. It is natural for a majority of babies to lose their hair. It will grow back. Both mine lost their hair and now have a ‘mop’ of hair. My youngest hated hats aswell. I don’t think people really bother about it when they are looking at babies.

  • It is very normal for babies to lose their first lot of hair and for it to be patchy … it will grow back better than before :) embrace it!!!

  • just leave it!! babies aren’t vain and no-one else cares! she’s just a bub, they all have weird hair at that stage.
