Soon your baby will celebrate his first birthday and many parents are interested in the question - is it necessary to trim the child in a year and why is it, strictly speaking, necessary.
The roots of this tradition stretch back from pre-Christian Russia, when there were various pagan traditions that were adhered to at that time. Some, not justified, have survived to this day. So, the tradition of circumcision of hair in a year to a child who does not have any scientifically substantiated evidence.
Here, too, our mothers and grandmothers, faithfully believing that it was so, shaved us with you. And if God forbid, strands, are circumcised before the year, this is still considered a crime.
When you can cut a child - you ask. And then, when this becomes necessary. For example, a baby was born with a thick and long head of hair, and in six months the hair begins to creep into his eyes, or in the street heat and long hair give the child discomfort. Poor parents, tormented by superstitions, begin to pin hair with hairpins, tie with rubber, but such a child quickly removes from the head, and you have to repeat the process again.
Instead, you can simply cut off extra curls without shaving your head. And the baby will feel better, and the parents will not be tormented again with the hairdo, after all, caring for the hair of a young child is a problematic occupation.
Many mothers trust the haircut of a child to a professional - they lead to a hairdresser, having previously agreed with the master. After all, not everyone can master the hairdresser's art, but he wants the child to look neat and stylish.
But most of us still experiment, and not always the kid agrees that he was shearing a stranger and a stranger.
