So Lilly was born with a little hair not much but a little... some of it fell out like normal then it stopped and started coming back well now it's falling out again.. how many times does this happen? When do they start getting their actual hair?
This next question is not due to lack of care. we give Lilly a bath every other night, but it seems she always smells like spoiled formula I wipe under her neck and behind the ears is it just me or do any other LOs have an issue sometimes?
Under her nails get sooo dirty even when cut short odd for a little one that can't do much yet!

Yeah, I don't know for sure about the hair. Grace had nearly no hair until after she was 1, so I never noticed the falling out & growing back. But at some point it'll stop falling out.
We also do wipe-downs between baths. I actually don't even give her a full bath every other day...maybe twice a week at most. But we wipe down, especially face and neck, in between.
And the fingernails...yeah, they get dirt under them. I think it's from all the grabbing, clawing, etc. they do...every time they claw at their own skin or someone else's, or any object, a little bit of dirt gets under there, and it just builds up. I'm constantly cleaning out dirt from her fingernails.
Are you pumping for your little one? Planning to pump?

I haven't noticed R's hair falling out. She was born with some, not a whole lot, and more on the back lower part of her head than anywhere else. Like I said I have noticed any falling out, maybe a LITTLE on the top but mostly I am noticing that it seems to be turning red. Poor girl she is going to be so out of place in my family of blonde headed children, lol.
She gets a bath every couple of days, and then I wipe her down between. Sometimes I do little 'half' bathes, where I just wash her little butt because it seems to help her stay more comfortable.
OMG at the dirt! and she hates me messing with her nails. She has to be almost passed out asleep for me to do any trimming or anything.
Is the color hair they have now the color it will stay??
Not necessarily. I had blond hair until I was 3 or 4, and then it turned brown. And DH was also blond as a kid and now has brown hair. So I wouldn't be surprised if Grace's blond hair turned brown eventually. Anna seems to have darker hair than Grace, but we'll see where she ends up.
