When will my baby grow hair?

Q: My baby's totally bald. When will she grow some hair?

A: Tired of people assuming your daughter's a boy anytime you don't dress her in head-to-toe pink? You should know that there's a very wide range of normal when it comes to baby hair growth. Most babies lose some of the hair they're born with within the first few months, due to hormonal fluctuations that occur right after birth. In those cases, it can start growing in again pretty quickly. But for those who are born as total baldies, it can take up to a year or more for any significant hair to sprout -- this is totally fine and nothing to worry about. In the meantime, try not to stress about your baby's bare head. You can still enjoy stockpiling all those girly bows and barrettes -- you'll be using them soon enough!

  1. My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SleepBaby .org<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SleepBaby .org<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
