Q.

Hair loss

Hi doc, I' ve recently noticed that my son of 5 months seems to be losing a lot of hair. At the moment it looks as if he is getting bald. His hair is all over his clothes. He is on Nan 1 Hypo-allergenic formula. Is this normal or could it be that he' s allergic to something, maybe the milk, purities or even baby shampoo?
Please help!!!!!

This is very common and is regarded as normal. Your baby probably was born with quite a lot of hair which will thin out and then start to grow again.
