  1. Hello and thank you for posting us at Medimetry.Babies often lose their hair during first 6 months of age.A newborn's hormone levels drop after birth which can cause him to lose hair he was born with.If he has bold patches observe way he sits and sleeps.If baby sleeps in same position he may lose hair in that area.Is there any flaky scaling on scalp?If yes then it could be due to fungal infection of scalp.Another possibility is seborrheic dermatitis which causes thick yellow scales on scalp .It occurs due to overproduction
  2. Sorry for incomplete response.I am completing it.Seborrheic dermatitis occurs due to overproduction of oil in oil glands and hair follicles.Shampooing daily and massaging with finger or a washcloth helps in this condition.Other causes of hairfall are hypothyroidism and hypopituitarism.If hairfall is severe and persistent please visit your doctor and get baby examined.Hope this information helped you.Keep us posted on your baby's health.Good day and take care!
