A couple of weeks ago my 6 month old (exclusively breastfed) started reaching behind her head while feeding on left boob, and pulling on her hair at the last 1-2inches at the base.
I noticed after a couple of days that she must have been pulling out hair too, as there was a new bald patch.
I was worried she was stressed about something, and it was manifesting here.
She doesnt do this when feeding on the right boob.
But she does rest that same hand on her forehead (by reaching up from below) and in her hair if she can reach it. I am just glad she's not pulling it out from the front too!
Anyone else experiencing their baby pulling their own hair out??
