    Do you trim your baby's eyelashes?

    Ha.. Just curious if this old wives tale is true:

    if you trim your baby's eyelashes so that it will grow longer.

    If you really did it, at how old did you start trimming and did you do it yourself or at the salon?

    Last time in my working place, this canteen lady's daughther (toddler)eyelashes was so long. She told us she trimmed her daughther eyelashes when baby.

    Hmmm.. My hubby actually showed me a pic of his friend's son. The boy trimmed his lashes and it was sooooo long and dark. dont know whether its an urban legend or just pure coincidence?!?

    actually i feel that if your kid has long eyelash then good for her but if she doesnt then nvm aso bcoz if you trim it n turn out is a myth then i tink in future your ger will blame you for doing that ~ just let her naturally grow bah...who knows maybe slowly her eyelashes will grow longer ?

    NO, i did not. i dont dare to take the risk. i rather dear son has short eyelashes then taking the risk as baby will move as and when they want w/o 'informing' us.

    Re: Do you trim your baby's eyelashes?

    I just trimmed my baby's eyelashes... =)
    My mum trimmed mine when I was a baby... & now I really have curl eyelashes... So I do believe they will curl if you trim them... My mum said you can only trim them when your child is still a lil baby(like below 1-2 yrs old)... If he/she grow older then no use already...
    I'm now waiting for my girl's eyelash to thicken & curl... My mum said it will take 1-2 months & you can only do it once...=)

    I tried with my first baby, it did not work i do not think its true. My goddaughter have very long, thick curled eyelashes but her mum never cut. I think luck by luck.

    I dont't believe in such things... It is all genetic whether or not have long lashes or lashes that curl. Almost all Indians I have met have such long & thick lashes that curl... Envy!!!

    Re: Do you trim your baby's eyelashes?

    I won't want to trim. Anyway, my boy has long and curled eyelashes, even I'm envious of him!

    By the way, when my boy was 2 months old and SLEEPING, he jerked when I was trimming his fingernails. I accidentally clipped a bit of his skin off; he bled and screamed. I was totally guilty and tramautised! Please be careful...
