  • Whenever you want.
    Some babies are born with hair so long it's hanging over their eyes. Some reach 18 months with only a little bit of fuzzy hair.
    When you think it's not cute or it's a problem, cut it.

  • Whenever you want. My son is 20 months and still hasn't had one. It is all whatever your preference is.

  • Whey they are a year old...personally a lot of older people think it's bad luck to cut a baby hair before their 1st year.....but seriously, I've asked my Dr. even my hairdresser, and they both said when they turn 1.

  • Its whenever you feel like it! I do know that a lot of hair dressers do a nice little award for baby's first hair cut...they write out the date, location, and hair dresser's name on a nice certificate and put a lock in a very nice envelope for mom to save. I had never heard of this until a friend of mine took her son in for his first cut...I told my grandmother who is a hair dresser, and she started doing the same thing in her salon! I think its a great idea.

  • My son had his fisrt haircut when he was 18 mo. The only reason for that was because I was tired of everyone calling him a beautiful little "GIRL" But you can tell when it is due:)

  • It depends on their hair. Some get it cut at 5 months and others are almost 2 years.
