Some claim her mother is Engeltrude Fruili. But Engelrude was born c837, which would maker her only 13 at Hedwig's birth.

Cawley doesn't quote the rest of the section from Annalista Saxo, that states Baba is the daughter of Otto, Duke of Saxony, so it's impossible for her to be Hadwig's mother. Stewart Baldwin, thinks she and her name may be mythical.

The page about Hadwig, discusses other unlikely mothers, with one possible.

The profile was meant to serve as either or: Baba/Engeltrudis UNKNOWN. Either way... she is probably not a Friuli.

SOURCE for BABA: Annalista Saxo 902, MGH SS, VI, p. 590. >> "BABA, daughter of --- (-after 864)." ... It's Ingeltrudis who's the sketchy option.[1]

I've removed Baba as the mother of this profile, there is no evidence for this.

There seems to be no reason to give her Bayern as her LNAB. There is no known connection to Bavaria.
