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 never had it happen to my kids but I am always cautious of it. My hair is about two feet long, so its almost always pulled back into a pony tail. I have had my oldest eat some of my strands of hair and end up with them dangling out his but when I change him.... He eats a lot of weird things.

The one I delivered at was doing a lot of changing. The nurse told me that a couple years ago they never told new moms that but after having some incidents over the years, they changed their policy. It might be a good idea to let other new parents know though!

Quoting jojo_382:

Hmm hospitals here never said a thing maybe it should.be mandatory to tell mother about this kind of things


Quoting raye-chan:

The hospital warned us that this could possibly happen and to always wear my hair up.

Lol same here I think I was more freak out and paranoid then he was and his Dr reassure me that everything Is fine an not to worry


Quoting Glitchtastic:

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.

Never heard of it nor experienced it.
