  • Its some silly old wives tale, I had to do it though, DS was born with a full head of long hair, he looked ridiculous! I got him a nice hair cut when he was 2 months old, he looked so handsome =)

  • I had to take my son to the hairdresser at 3 weeks old. He looked like he had a wig and it stuck out straight, all over.

  • My boy is 7 months with the thickest longest afro I have seen on a baby boy....people are telling me to wait but not telling me why I should.

  • Do what you want to do. I chose to let my babies hair grow until their second birthday, because I like the wispy baby hair they had. But if you feel like you should cut it then do.

  • My first was getting haircuts regularly at 6 months because it was in his face. But my second son is 13 months and still hasn't has his first haircut

  • I never heard of this son had about half a dozen haircuts the first year!!!

  • Maybe it is something only black people do. Never heard of other races waiting to cut the babys hair.

  • I have many friends black and white who waited one year to cut their kids hair. I waited because I wanted to see if ds' hair would be straight or curly. Baby hair changes a lot during the first year. It stayed straight for a long time and then once it got a certain length it had a little flip at the bottom. Now at age 4 it's either buzzed or in a mowhawk.

  • Wow, LeeLee. Way to go for turning a post about children's hair into a racial thing.

    Bravo. *Claps*

    ..Can you sense the sarcasm?
