Just a little off the top.....
Now, does that look like fun or what????? The picture above doesn't look much like a haircut but more like a battle of three against one and the baby was winning! My son just had his first haircut and although the results were worth it, the process was a bit daunting. He is just under 1 year old and refused to hold still to have his hair trimmed. So I held him on my lap while my husband held his head still and my mom cut his hair. And just to add extra fun we gave him a sucker hoping it would help him to hold still, but all that really happened is that his face was covered in stickiness and hair by the end.
This was a new experience for me too because I never cut my daughter's hair (not at all) until she turned 2. By then, she was interested in watching a cartoon while the trim occured so no problem there. But for my son the process was less than fun.
So here are my questions:
What age have you found is the hardest for haircuts?
How do you get your baby to hold still for a haircut?
Do you ever use treats? If so, what have you found is best for haircuts?
Who cuts your baby's hair? How did you choose that person?
Do you usually use scissors or clippers on your baby boy?
Any other suggestions on cutting baby hair?
