Pulling hair?

My 9 1/2 month old son just recently started pulling hair of us and other babies!! He isn't angry, and I can see in his face that it's curiosity. He doesn't seem to understand "no" or taking him away...he's just so curious! Any suggestions on how to get him to stop? Or any sympathy and understanding that babies do go through this phaase!?

  • It will pass. He is curious. Wear your hair in a pony tail.

  • He's exploring his world. Just keep hair out of his reach.

  • My daughter did that. We just helped her out so she wouldn't grab and taught her how to stroke it while using the words gentle and soft.
