My boy is 6 months old. Is it normal for him to pull his hair? I forget.

There are lots of reasons why babies do it, could be tired or hungry, could just be exploring their body. I wouldn't worry about it unless he pulls any hair out or hurts himself, then I would try to stop it.

My 4 month old son has been doing it since he was really young, it's a comfort thing for him.

My DD1 twirled knots in her hair! LOL She'd pull at it and twist it so bad.

He usually only does it while I nurse him to sleep. And he scratches his head all up when he does it. I try to stop him but that just keeps him awake and makes him fussy.
