Ever heard that if you have a lot of acid reflux that your baby will have a full head of hair? I had heard it before but had totally forgotten about it until a friend reminded me today. Anyone found any truth to this??

i had it and my daughter came out with a FULL head of hair. it looked like she had the perfect haircut too lol. she is now 3 weeks old and her hair is starting to grow long already.

I had this with my daughter and she did not have much hair at all.

People I know who have had this happen were popping TUMS like it was going out of style to combat heartburn and reflux. I thought it had something to do with the calcium in the TUMS, but that could be an old-wives tale too.

Had this with all three previous pregnancies and all three had a full head of hair, and having it with this pregnancy too.

Like someone said before on a similar thread: If this tale is true then I am having a Chewbacca!

My mom had terrible heartburn when she was pregnant with me, and I came out bald. I have heartburn as well. Guess we'll find out in six weeks or less!

I heard it too! I also had it bad, and wouldn't you know it? full head of hair on my little man!

My niece's mom had it really bad and she had a head full of hair. I had it really bad starting around 5 month. My doc gave me previcid for it though. At my sono i had done at 6 month she already had enough hair that you could see it on the screen, so we think that she is goin to have alot of hair. We will see in about 2 and 1/2 weeks. I will let you know

My Mum had four babies with a lot of hair and never had reflux. If it is true, however, I am expecting to give birth to a small gorilla, considering the amount of heartburn I've had so far (28 weeks).

I had it bad in my 1st pregnancy and my baby was born with tons of hair. Jet black it was too. Everyone kept telling me it's only baby hair and he will lose it. Well 4 and a hlf years on he still hasnt lost it yet!

My mom keeps saying that I am burping so much because the baby has a lot of hair! I'm only 24 weeks, so I have a while to go.


CEM - August 20

this has been true for all three of my pregnancies as well. really bad heartburn - lots of hair! so i guess there is some truth to it! at least for me.
