  • No, it's a old wives tell. Like if you tickle your baby's feet then he will stutter. It's not true.

  • Yes.

    He will also grow weaker and not be able to destroy the temple.

    Oh wait....that was Sampson.

    Trim him up as needed - you'll be fine.

  • Why would you trim a 6 week old baby girl's hair? Weekly at that? My daughter is almost a1.5 years and was born with 2 inch long hair. Her hair is now midway down her back and I still see no reason to cut her hair.

  • I truly can not believe the weird stuff people think is true! Think seriously for a second about what you are asking...you are asking if dead cells being trimmed off of your kids head is going to affect his brain in such a way that he will be unable to communicate. I suppose cutting your fingernails makes you unable to write with a pencil too?

  • trimmed it because it was about 6 inches long all over her head. its down to the middle of her back now, and gets a monthly trim still to control it. its so thick and hot that we had to - she was a summer baby.

    she's 3 now.
