My happy little guy has a bald spot on the back of his head where the hair has rubbed off, he's had it for months and months now. Its not flat, the Dr is not worried but just wondering when it will go away. My friends bub who is 10 weeks older had her hair grow back long ago. He had darkish hair so its very obvious lol
He sits most the time now rather than playing on his back, and he spends time on his tummy too, but at night he sleeps 10 hours and does tend to move his head around a bit in his sleep from one side to the other which can't help!
For those who had bubs with bald spots - when did it grow back?

Sorry Chaton, no answer from me as my son is only 15 weeks and sporting an impressive bald spot, so I was hoping there were some encouraging responses.
Sometimes when we lift him out of his bed there is so much hair it looks like a cat has been sleeping there .

My DD's bald spot started to cover up at about 6 1/2 months. Now at almost 8 months you wouldn't even know she had one, but she also only has fine wispy fair hair so it didn't have to grow much to look like the rest.

DS didn't get the bald spot until he was about 4 months old. He's now nearing 8 months...

DD2 (10 1/2 months) started rolling over to sleep on her tummy about a month ago & hers is growing back really quickly now.

With DD1 I taped a satin pillow case to her fitted bedsheet (I taped it down so it wasn't a SIDS risk ie, couldn't cover her face in any way) less friction means less hair loss. DD1 didn't have a bald spot at all.

My kids have dark hair and born with lots... It usually starts to look better when they start to crawl and then at about 8-9mths its filled in again...

my baby is super-blonde and doesn't have much hair in general, but her bald spot is starting to look like it's growing a bit of stubble. she's almost 7 months.

Thomas is 9 months and he is still pretty bald on the back. It is just starting to grow now.

My 7 month old DS still has a massive bald spot at the back. There is a little bit of stubble starting to close in at the edges though so maybe it's about to grow back.
