I know its normal for them to lose some hair. Aubrey's hair is pretty thin on the back of her head from sleeping on her back and she does this new thing where she rubs her head side to side so that isn't helping.

Noelle does the same thing with her head. I know her hair loss is from rubbing her head. Its like the second I lay her down she does it lol.

Ali Claire was born with just a little bit of hair and we were all shocked because DS was literally over 2 years old before he had any hair.

Rj still has his head of hair from when he was born. I have noticed that he's getting reddish brown hair growing in like me. Rj also grabs hand fulls of hair when he's sleepy.

It is very normal for a baby's hair to fall out. I expected my first son's to fall out because he was born with a TON of it...but it never did. And so far, Connor's hair has stayed put, too. He wasn't born with quite as much as Sean, but he's still got a lot, lol.

Aubrey rubs her head too so she has a giant bald spot. It is normal for babies to lose their hair though just like we will seem to loose/shed a lot of hair after the baby. They are affected by our hormones.

Ella still has a lot of hair but is losing some. Its basically thinning all over. But Right around the back and sides you can see baldish places but shes got enough left for a discreet baby combover :)
