  • I doubt it. I would just be patient with it. I would not want to put a chemical on my baby's head just because I wanted her to have hair anyways.

  • No, it will grow eventually!! My oldest son was a cueball until he was a year old.

  • Unfortunately there is nothing you can do to promote hair growth in babies.However you can try to massage her head when washing it in the bath..Just be patient! =)

  • I have the same issue! My son is bald in the front though. His hair grown from the top to the back but for some reason his hairline in the front will not grow. I heard shaving their head will stimulate hair growth but my boyfriend is a barber and he says its a bad idea to do that to such an immature hair follicle. My son's father's family told me to use baby oil and massage his scalp in circular motions with a baby hair brush. But these are also the same people who said he was bald because I didn't eat enough refried beans during my pregnancy!!! Basically it all comes down to the fact that her hair will grow when its ready. Then between the tangles and haircuts you will wish she was bald again!

  • Give her a scalp massage gently in the bath with shampoo.

  • My daughter is two and a half is just starting to get some hair! My husband and I were both bald until the age of two. It runs in the family. It'll grow eventually. For now, embrace her baldness! Nothing is cuter than a sweet little bald head.
