Have you every thought that one string of hair could hurt your baby to the point the finger toe or gentiles end up with no circulation and has to be cut off?
I never did Intel I was at my son Dr's office an my second son starting crying out of no where again like he did early that day I look and did see why no teething, he wasn't wet, wasn't hungry you know the normal stuff a baby cries for well any way we got to the room and the Dr look at him and seen a strand of my hair wrap around my son toe it was and a Lil swollen and red but we got it in time before it could do any damage to his toe so now and his Dr say it a common thing that a lot a parents don't realize it happen it sometime it too late he also say he has seen few case that this has happen so now I keep a very close eye on them just to be sure it does happen to my son again.
What you thoughts have any of you had this expense?
P.S this is a picture I found on the net this isn't my son

Poor baby... my hair has always been long n we know babies like to pull on mommies hair so I would find it not around but on their neck and sometimes their diaper too. No damage tho thank God.

Yes, it was the first thing my grandmother warned me about. So I always made sure during those times, especially when I was breast feeding that my hair was up in a tight bun. My grandmother gave me anxiety attacks with her stories.

Yes. My sister works in a hair salon. I've seen what hair can do to a person, it's gross! Glad the baby is ok :)

My son was just a few days old and a string from the baby mittens I had on him wrapped around one of his fingers while he slept. When he woke up I took it off. His finger was red and starting to swell and I FREAKED out. Cut it off him. There was no permanent damage, but I was so upset.

The hospital warned me about it so I checked all the time. It is scary one hair can do so much damage.
