Does anyone else's do this, and should we just ignore it and hopefully he'll grow out of it?

How much hair do you have lying around?

Of course I bloody hoover angry!

But he does find the occasional stray strand on my head or the stairs (I have long hair and it's these he likes). Even worse, if he spots a hair or a bit of fluff when we're out and I don't get there first he will eat that.

Anyway, I didn't ask for a critique of my cleaning skills, but whether anyone else's dc has been a hair muncher and advice on how to deal with it. Anyone?

my sisters 4 1/2 year old has done this from a young age.If we see him we take it away but thats not possible all the time as you know.we have asked him why and not to do it but im sure its habit now.
she has long hair and as much as you clean strands are still about.
ask your h.v if anything worries you how silly it my seem.
