My ds is nearly one and is a real hair puller - I tell him 'No' every time he does it but it has no effect. Every time we meet up with friends he always pulls the other babies hair - even if they are much bigger and older than him. What can I do to stop this??

My DS used to do it too, he got a real thrill from haring me scream smile Just keep pulling his hand away and saying no, or pull his hair back, that always stumped my DS smile

Both mine do it/did it. I really wouldn't pull his hair to show that pulling hair is wrong. I think he'd be confused. I say no firmly and stroke his hair. He smiles and is easily distracted to something else. He is starting to do is less and occasionally strokes my hair. It hopefully wont last long and it's entirely normal. x
