Im kinda curious if the cutting of eyelashes to your baby is really true. They say that you have to cut your baby eyelashes in able for it to grow long and more curly. I haven't done this yet because my baby moves a lot and Im still afraid that I might hurt him with the scissor that Im about to use. So I wonder is this belief really works or is there's any scientific explanation about this. I really need your help.

i have never heard of this. but i wouldn't do it. a baby's lashes are as genetically passed down as hair color and curlyness. besides cutting lashes could cause a piece of the hair to get in Ian's eyes and that would cause medical problems.

I've heard this a very long time ago, but it's not true. Length of your a eye lashes is genetically programmed and there is nothing you can do to change it.
Not to mention that scissors anywhere near baby's eyes doesn't sound like a good idea to me.
