I really need some help and want to try to see if there is anyone out there who is or was going through the same thing with their kids. My daughter Lily pulls her hair for comfort and has gotten so bad that she has a bald spot on the right side of her head about the size of a tennis ball. She is only pulling from the one side and doesn't seem to hurt her when she is doing it. She usually does it at night (must be-since she doesn't do it during the day very much) we think before she goes to sleep in her crib. We have tried cutting her hair shorter, telling her that her hair looks beautiful, distracting her with something else and providing a different security or comfort item. Please help!!
