  • My little one has pulled his hair from the day he was born. He likes to when he sleeps and when he nurses. He also pulls it hard when he is mad or upset (he just turned 1 by the way). I think it's his way of calming down or is somehow comforting to him. I'm not really sure but it doesn't seem to hurt him and he has a full head of hair so he's not pulling it all out. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

  • Yes, my son at 17 months just started that in frustration but I remember aroudn the same age he found his ears and would pull on them a lot too.

  • my sone was bald till he was 2:) But when he got mad, he would bang his head on the floor. Little goofball, I had to vault across the room so many times to catch his head cause he did it hard!!
