Where am I?

The baby hair of many newborns falls out during the first 6 months of life. Hair loss peaks at 3 months old. The mother may also lose some of her hair at this time.

This baby hair is then replaced by permanent hair. The normal hair comes in between 6 and 12 months.This shedding phase in newborns is always normal.

 However if you think it’s looking too much it’s better to get evaluated.
