    my children did it too and .....
    I know how you feel my daughter who is almost 2 now does the same thing and i think she started doing it almost a year ago and it slowly got worse. We recently cut her hair really short and she could still pull a little bit but not pull it out now its starting to grow back and she is able to pull it out again. Cutting it short is not the answer i think im going to have to shave it as sad as that sounds so that there will be nothing to pull and the habbit will go away... i really dont know what else to do.... i figure better to do it now then when she's five and going to school. :(

    sure you can try..
    Actually not all that unusual. A habit is exactly what it is – a nervous habit, much like thumb sucking or lip licking which equally can cause sore irritated skin around the base of the thumb and the outer surfaces of the lips. it should pass. If it is a problem ask your doctor to rule out any medical problem.

    I am not sure , I have children but none of mine did that .. It does seem like a strange thing to do , I mean if she is pulling her hair out it must hurt .. Maybe she has pain there and the pulling helps, and this is why she does it , best to see a doctor just to put your mind at ease.. Please let me know what they say ..

    I really hope you get this sorted out soon , and it is nothing to worry about : ))

    Veronica....assuming your female! Would you ask a personal question like this about your 18 mt old child in a public forum? I wouldn't either, so point in the correct direction please!

    sure it would be considered bad judgment if anyone listened to you!

    Is she really pulling it out or just pulling it?

    If she's pulling it out, I'd take her for testing to see if it's a medical condition...otherwise, baby, I don't know!

    She actually pulling it out. like clumps at a time
  • sadiesmom Jessa ~COB 2008/03/07 20:14:18
    I think, not that I know the situation, but, she needs to be taken to the doctor and see if anything is wrong with her physically........just my momma two cents!
