Does anyone know when a bald spot on a babys head starts to grow back hair?

i have notice with my new baby that since i have her lay on her side, not just her back, she hasnt deveolped a bald spot. i have noticed that the more back time other babies aorund me have, that their bald spot gets bigger or stays longer, when they are constantly on their back. if you are able to prop them on their side it makes a MAJOR difference. i have this nifty pillow that comfortably keeps her on her side, and she actually sleeps better that way anyway. i guess some people don't recommend these, but it has been a godsend to me. i don't know what i would do without it.

My son developed a few bald spots. First, he lost a lot of hair on the top of his head (he lookedlike a 45 year old man with a receding hairline). The baldness there lasted just 6 weeks and has started growing back - a different color, amazingly, but nice and puffy. Next, he lost hair at two spots on the back of his head due to quickly moving his head side to side while inhis bouncy and swing. These have not grown back yet (4 weeks later) and I do not anticipate hair regrowth until he stops this movement. Good luck to your child!

My daughter has a bald patch on the back of her head... she is now 5 months and its almost gone now thatshe is out of bed and playing more ! A lot of people comment on it which I don't like... most babies experience this after all ! I simply point out how much hair she has on the rest of her head, it certainly makes up for the tiny bit that's missing !

do you mean a babies or yours?
a babies hair will grow back once he/she stops rubbing the hair off in their sleep, their hair grows fairly quickly so it covers up quickly.
if it is you your talking about,. hair does fall out at a rapid rate some time after having a baby but once your hormaones settle down it goes back to normal.

Hi, im olivia and im a Hairdresser by trade. Dont stress!!! stress is one of the reasons we loose are hair.... so what ever is stressing you just let it go!!! pregnancy takes a toll on our bodys too and can also cause hair loss. Keep your scalp and hair nice and clean use some organic shampoos and conditioners if you can and if you tie your hair bak dont tie it tight. Try not to constantly look at the patch of hair thats missing as it will just bother you and may get worse.. just get on wit life and in no time it ill start to grow. Goodluck :)
