Baby Hair & Heartburn

Researchers at Johns Hopkins intended to blow apart an old wive's tale about a newborn baby's hair but now they're surprised at what they found.

Maybe you've heard people say if a baby is born with a lot of hair the mom had a lot of heartburn while she was pregnant. The Johns Hopkins study looked at dozens of pregnant women ranking their degree of heartburn and the amount of hair their babies had at birth and guess what? It was true more than 80 percent of the time the pregnant ladies with moderate to severe heartburn had babies with the most amount of hair and likewise no heartburn, no hair.
