Sleeping Without Pillow Hair Growth
Yes: Hair conditioners coat hairs and prevent them from breaking, but make sure you avoid traumatizing the hairs too. ...Read more
Not likely...: Babies in general move quite a bit during sleep..Soft/firm/pillow top beds probably won't make much of a difference since a new baby is only a few pound anyway. Just make sure baby sleeps on his/her back and that no blanket/bedding near face which may suffocate baby. Follow up with family doc/pediatrician regularly and ask lots of questions. Baby is precious. Congrats and good luck. ...Read more

Is there any additional benefit to sleeping on gel-infused memory foam versus regular memory foam mattress pads / pillows?
No: Sleep on whatever allows you to get a good night's rest & wake up refreshed w/o any aches or pains. Same goes for hard vs soft mattress and for (thickness of) pillows. Makes no difference whether coils are individually wrapped or not. Or if cotton or wool or whatever. Don't buy into mattress ad hype. ...Read more
Shaving hair: NO, shaving does not "cause" hair growth. The old wives tale that shaving hastens hair growth in adolescence APPEARS to be true because adolescents are at the age when hair growth begins! Also, when you shave hair it becomes prickly, and more noticeable to the touch. The hair follicle beneath the skin does not know whether the hair above it has been cut long, short or completely shaved. ...Read more
Can sleep positions affect height? Does sleeping w/ 1 leg bent in fetal position or legs straight (feel bit pulling behind knees) add height in adults
Not really: Any comfortable sleeping position may be used, and none of the positions add height more than any other position. All the comfortable positions will add the same slight amount of height, because weight is taken off the spine during sleep (the vertical downward force of gravity is not acting vertically upon a person's spine, during typical sleep in a bed). The effect goes away, when one stands up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
