When my  now 14 year old dd was a baby I noticed her pinky toe was cold and turning white. Took her to the er. Turns out it was a hair wrapped so tigh around her little toe. It took the drs awhile to get it off b/c it was wrapped so tight. They said she was lucky she didnt lose her toe. Very scary!

I've heard of this happening.  And those full body outfits that cover the feet-check for any loose strings those can get wrapped around them as well!

I've heard of that happening. My sons first ped told me to check for that if he was crying and we didn't know why

Very scary!  I never would have thought to check for a hair or string.

 I've heard of this too. Thankfully, we didn't have any problems - and I shed like CRAZY so it was a concern of mine.

Thanks for the reminder, especially for moms like me that have really long hair.

A mom on here made a post not that long ago that her dd lost her toe because of that happening and she has always felt guilty for it. It stuck out in my mind because I had just had my now three month old and am always checking her toes and fingers now. I never thought about it when my older two were infants.

I have long hair and I'm always worried about that happening.
