Hair twisting/pulling

Anonymous

My LO just turned two and when she falls asleep she twists her hair. It’s now become a habit and I’ve had to cut out sooo many knots because she winds them so tightly that I can’t untangle them. She now has bald spots in the back of her head. Any advice?

    Instead of getting her to stop completely, I would try replacing her hair with another object like a fuzzy stuffed animal or a doll with hair - and have her wear an old fashioned night cap / hat that covers her own hair
