Baby's First Haircut

We've reached another milestone. Baby's First Haircut!  I've decided to share our family video of our experience!  I'd love to hear about your baby's first haircut too! Please leave a comment & maybe a link to your post!

We (mostly MY decision) waited a while before cutting our guy's hair.  He had a bad case of cradle cap early on, so for the first few months of his life our little guy had a bald head. Once his hair grew in - I was thrilled and just let it keep on growing!

Both of his grandmothers offered to cut his hair.  I didn't want to have to choose between the two on who would get to do the honors - SO... we turned to the professionals!

Our guy did very well considering the following:
1) No nap
2) It was nearing closing time at the salon - you could tell the staff had their fill of kiddie cuts!
3) He usually flinches when the nurse measures his noggin during check-ups.

Will he cry? Throw a tantrum?  You'll have to watch to see!


  1. With my son, I couldn't wait to cut his hair just for that new milestone to put in the scrapbook! hehe But, my daughter is 2.5 and her hair seems to be just now finally growing in! She had cradle cap too so maybe that has a lot to do with it?

    I'll have to try to view your video in a different browser - it doesn't seem to want to pop up in Chrome.

  2. Great video and how precious your son is. Probably a good thing you left it to the professionals though. It's funny though that grandmothers always
    "offer" to do something when they think you have let something fall through the cracks.. ;)

  3. What a great video!! He did so well!!! What a cutie!! He is a doll!! Thanks for sharing this!!

  4. Enjoy these memories. And save the video -- you can use it for his high school graduation party. He'll just love that!!!! :)

    I wouldn't let any of my kids get their hair cut before their first birthday. Now I beg my teens to get one. HA!

  5. Aww, he is such a darling boy!!!

    I have 4 kids, but with my youngest, he was BORN with tons of hair. It was fine and blond/red so it didn't look like he had as much as he did. He's 11 months now, and as he gets older, it gets curly and is just absolutely gorgeous. It's all different lengths and there are places where it sticks up or hangs in his eyes. I can't bring myself to let it get cut. It's too beautiful. Someday. LOL. For now, he looks like a mini sk8er. Hahah!

  6. Ahhh, your son is so cute! What a good little guy he is:) This will a be a good one to watch with him when he's older!

  7. I love it!!! Thank you so much for sharing this experience with us! Your son did GREAT, and his new cut is so cute! By the way, could YOU have any more beautiful hair yourself?! Gorgeous! Thanks again for sharing, and I'm glad my suggestion worked out well. They were great with our son too. : )
