Ouch Hair Pulling

Sarahsmommy - May 2

Now that Sarah has figured out how to grasp things her favorite thing to grasp is my hair, any ideas on how to make her stop? I tried to move it where she can't reach it, I've told her no, you may not do that, stop, anything else I can think of, and I even tryed tapping her hand once as I was saying no and nothing hurts, this really hurts, it's not like a little tug like some babies, she's actually pulling hair out, anyway any ideas? If not at least I've gotten to vent about it some. Oh she's 5 months by the way.

I feel your pain!!! My lo does the same thing he really has a grip. I have no idea on how to get him to stop so I have been trying to remember to always put my hair up to try and avoid this.......oh and he grabs any necklace you may have on as well......if someone has a way of stopping this please share cause I am with you sarahsmommy this is getting old fast.......

Yeah she grabs my necklace too, but that doesn't hurt so I don't mind as much.

yeah your right it does'nt hurt but I'll be darned if he did'nt break the chain on one of my necklaces (strong little boy) so I am careful to remove my necklaces now....lol

I cut mine shorter, it was so painful. She gets me right down by the back of my neck now and ouch it hurts. I just keep prying her fingers away from it and trying not to invite the opportunity. I would just say "no hair pulling" and remove her fingers. She is not going to understand it yet, but if you keep at it she'll catch on eventually. Keep it tied back if you can.

It's an unfortunate part of motherhood that can't be fixed without cutting it all off or just waiting until they grow out of it. My daughter grabs my hair and my lips.. it's REAL fun.
