My 18 month old has the biggest hair fettish and rips my hair out on a regular basis. It's his comfort thing and literally freaks out if I won't let him play with my hair, but when I do, he breaks it and pulls it out. The hair all around the frame of my face is thinning like crazy, I'm under a lot of stress recently as well so its falling out too!! plssss help!!

Maybe encourage him to play with dolls or other hairy toys? Wear your hair back or covered somehow, and keep reminding him that it hurts mommy when he touches her hair so he should play with the toy instead. Also, if he has triggers (like certain places or times when he wants to play with your hair) try to avoid those if you can.

He's a big cuddler, and its mostly then when he does it. I always tell him no, that hurts mommy, but he just screams about it .. I wish I could avoid those times but its generally when he's really tired a d going to sleep. I will try sneaking a doll in between us though. Thanks!
