  • My son has done this since he was a baby. He is now 5 yrs old. He does it without even realizing. It's a comfort thing for him. He sleeps with me (different issue) and I will wake up to him chewing my hair. I just keep telling him to leave my hair alone. **As a side note my son does have Down's but that does not have anything to do with why he chews my hair.** With everyone else he plays with their hair but I haven't seen or been told that he has chewed anyone elses.
