To cut or not to cut...*update on pg 3*

That is the question! My son is almost 7 months old and his hair is just all over the place. It seems to bother him too, like around his ears and it's getting in his eyes. It's long enough in the back that it gets stuck in neck fat and pulls sometimes too lol. I was always told that you shouldn't cut a baby's hair if they are under 1yo. So, should I cut his gorgeous locks? Anybody have any advice on a type of cut that would be good for him? I love his hair but I don't think it's good to have it in his eyes so much and in his ears making him scratch all the time. Is there a way I could cut it but still keep it kinda long??? Like maybe just a trim or something? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Here's a funny pic of him with carrot stain around his mouth getting shocked from the flash on the camera :)

i would just trim it. my son has had many many haircuts starting from his frist trim at 3wks old. It does not hurt them at all.

I would get a little trim but I have no idea how, sorry.

I've never cut anyone's hair before and my own 15 month old has never had a haircut because she still doesn't have much hair.

It won't hurt to give it a little trim.  I trimmed my older son's hair at home around 10 months, just around his eyes and ears.  He got his first official cut around 14 months at the salon.   You can still keep it long but just get it out of his eyes and from around his ears.

He does have beautiful baby hair. I would just trim where it bothers him.
