This is a discussion on EDD Sep 2010 within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by lekdao You wanna shave on the full month? or normal shave? If full month you can try ...
My baby has lots of hair n hairline shape is nice so I didn't really want to shave it off n let her look botak. I'm worried shaving may cause her lesser hair growth haha...
I'm also using combi car seat...not bad!!!
Nightingale, just had my full month celebration n thanks to your recommendation, the food catered by manna pot was great n feel it taste better than Neo garden which we also catered as the first session.
The only thing unsatisfactory was they arrived late for setup (came at the time I invited my guests). Luckily my guests didn't arrive on the dot!!
Anyway thanks again!
My hus brought her to e barber he frequent to shave her. dont really like it cos they dont specialise in shaving babies and mine ended up having hair all over her.
Nope! its nonsense some shaved when changing hair still dropped until here 1 patch, there 1 patch... Yes, at about 4 mths they will start chaning hair and that is the time you starts to drop hair too. So now is the best time for you to look around for hair loss shampoo and hair tonic for yourself.
shave the baby hair: -
1. wanna use the hair to make a brush
2. to hair is not nice or little, shaved off to let it grow evenly and nice. (But some elder believe cannot shave all, must left abit of hair on the centre of the head to protect the brain).
I also never shave coz my mother in law believes the old folks tale. Its so ugly for a gal to left a patch of hair on the centre of the head.

On the fourth month coz they are changing hair, so some ppl will just shave off (save the hassle of cleaning up the cot) and regrow new hair. I ever see ppl shave coz the baby hair texture is not good. After shave apply olive oil on the scrap and baby hair will be good, how true i dont know. hahaha
I never shave the hair, on the full month i just get ppl come to my house to trim a bit only.
What causes green poop in babies? - Yahoo! Answers
my baby have it again, i am also quite confused as i was careful already to feed him hindmilk. i had iron tablets from gynae, wonder if it could be the cause...
Anyone knw when shld we stop swaddling and stop wearing mittens? And when can we start using shampoo??
So, at 4 months baby will start changing hair...will her hair look patchy when it starts dropping?? What hair loss shampoo n tonic you were using then...can recommend? So if now I'm only one month after delivery, is it advisable if I want to do any rebonding or colouring?? My hair looks a mess
As for mittens, learnt from antenatal class that should stop wearing mittens after your baby is 6 wks old as wearing mittens will affect her motor development...
Hee...I used shampoo long ago....did not follow confinement rules n bathed daily during confinement period though for hair, I washed every 2-3 days just can't stand the heat n sweaty body
Im still swaddling at night... Seems bettet for my gal... As for mittens, thanx for the info!!!
Actually I meant, when can baby start using shampoo.. Bcos at ante classes they say dont use shampoo on baby first cos their scalp too delicate... But i forgot when shld i start??
Yes, read about the mittens - babies need to learn about their fingers and grasping so should stop wearing soon. However once I tried leaving them off and my dear girl grabbed her own hair - not intentionally! Of course, it hurt and she cried in surprise hahaha! Poor thing!
I think there is no hard and fast rule with shampoo~ just start with tiny amounts and check for any reaction like redness on the scalp or flaking, I guess? I've been using a 2-in-1 wash for baby since after full month, love to use a little shampoo on her hair because it makes her smell sooo nice after her bath (I like to put my nose to her head and sniff haha). So far my girl has been okay with it~ so long as we use those made for babies which are milder anyway.
Speaking of growing babies, have you all noticed how much your babies have grown? First thing is that she is starting to 'fill up' the 0-3mth rompers nicely - used to hang loosely on her - and also there is more 'bah' （肉） to grab haha! Getting more and more huggable!
LittleWorm, the picture of little Janelle in your profile looks like she has got thick curly hair! Nice!
My gal's hair look fine, some baby hair will look patchy when starts dropping, some will not. I'm using the Kanz Keratin Hair Loss Shampoo and Richenna Hair Tonic, richenna also comes with hair loss shampoo and conditioner. Yes, you can do rebonding and coloring if you can. If you r worry, choose those that is herbal base rebonding, heard pregnant also can do it.
Actually I stopped swaddling her when she was a week old, coz she hated it and would always struggle!
As for daytime naps vs night, my baby sleeps on our bed all the time, and now she seems to be able to tell the diff herself as she's starting to sleep thru e night i.e. Last feed at 11 and she'll only wake at 5am. Whereas daytime she naps for half an hour to 2 hours. She will only sleep on her tummy thou, never sleeps for long on her back or side. Did check with the pediatrician who says it's safe coz her head is quite strong now.
Feeding wise I do think she's drinking alot, now 130ml formula milk every 1.5 to 3 hours, and she's starting to cry for more! But I guess it's no major concern coz we're not forcing her to drink, but she wants more. Went for her first month visit to the pediatrician and she's now 4.735kg! Birth weight was 3.355.
Poor thing has quite bad reflex thou, pediatrician says she has gastric like me so she's on some medication now, and she hates it! Hoping her condition will improve gradually.
Btw think I've not added some mommies on facebook yet, so do add me alright? Hazelkoosf@gmail.com
