It is true babies don’t come with a manual, but we are here to help take the guesswork out of one area: baby hair-care and infant hair products.
Like so many things about a newborn, from size and weight to tiny temperament and sleeping habits, baby hair (or lack thereof) can vary from one infant to the next. Whether your baby is born bald or with plenty to brush on top like the kids from The Selva Family, try not to get too attached to the lovable look. Their hair will very likely change during the first year and perhaps even beyond. That said, don’t let those tiny strands stress you out, because we’ve combed through the baby hair-care tips and infant hair products that are sure to keep your bundle of joy’s beautiful hairstyle, whatever it may be, healthy through this transition.
From Bountiful to Bald … and Back Again
Besides gender, one of the first things a parent is likely to share with excited family and friends is a newborn’s weight, length … and details about that soft baby hair (or, perhaps, cute bald head).
If baby’s head is blessed with hair, they’ll probably start to shed it during the first six months, at which point they will begin to grow “real” hair that will likely stick around. So while it may be a surprise that baby arrived with one hair color, their locks may look and feel different by the time their first birthday rolls around.
Another reason for baby’s hair loss? Since an infant who cannot sit up or roll over will spend a lot of time on their back, the constant rubbing of their little head on the crib mattress, bouncer or rocker and car seat can lead to a bald spot, especially in the back of the head. If you notice baby favors one side when they're lying down, try to change their position so their head doesn’t go bald and flatten there, too. Bare spots will likely disappear when they're a bit older and start to spend more time upright.
