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

    if u trim ur baby's eyelashes so that it will grow longer.

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

    Nope did not trim...did not know abt it....hmmm but I think I will dare not trim too...cos' bb still consider delicate....even trim fingernails also must be extra careful, what more the eyelashes.....:tlaugh:

    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. Dunno whether its an urban legend or just pure coincidence?!?

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

    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 u trim them... My mum said u can only trim them when ur 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 & u 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 don'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!!!
