Is the bald spotts something new or have they always been there? My oldest daughter was completely bald till she was 2 1/2. I am sure it is nothing to worry about but if you are worried don't be afraid to talk to the doctor that is what they are for. And if the doctor seems annoyed time to find a new doctor.

This is completely normal. When they lay down they also scoot which will rub the area smooth. Once she starts sleeping on the othe side she will gow her hair back. I promise. The samething happens to my husbands calves when he wears jeans all the time. They just rub the hair smooth on his legs.
