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

I'm actually super paranoid about this, and check to make sure no hairs have fallen into DS's diaper at every change for this reason.

He didn't cry until I cut it off. Getting the feeling back in it probably hurt. Even then it wasn't a hysterical cry. I'm pretty sure I was the more upset one. lol

Quoting jojo_382:

Oh my goodness well good thing there was no permitted damage did he cry at all


Quoting Glitchtastic:

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.

Aww wow yes I also keep my hair when changing his dapper BC of this happen and awww poor auntie hopeful she hasn't become paranoid about it


Quoting liltampa71:

This happened to my son after coming home from his dad's.  His aunt had changed him and her hair had wrapped around his penis.  He was crying, and I noticed it when I changed his diapers.  I scooped my hair back when I changed him because I had read about this happening.  Obviously I didn't blame the aunt, but did ask her to double check the diaper for  hair before she closed it up after changing him.  She felt really bad, but it's such a freak thing I told her she shouldn't

Aww yea I agree im being paranoid about it too now hopeful I and the other person( which I didn't know someone already posted about this today) didn't scare the wits out of you


Quoting PinkHart:

I didn't know it could happen until reading it here. Now I'm paranoid as shit when I have my next lol. I did share this story (not yours the first one posted) with Df and told him to check fingers, toes and penis if baby is crying for no obvious reason!

This was years ago, my son is 13 now.  I was really careful to reassure her it's an easy thing to not think about.  I think she was paranoid the first few times after, but now she is a happy, confident mom herself.

Sometimes I'd tuck my hair in my shirt in the back if I didn't have time to put it up, but just out of the way.

Not necessarily scared but more aware and observant.

Quoting smurfbitebug:

Maybe you should post this in the pregnancy group. It does help to be forewarned about this kind of thing.
