FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT BABY HEADBANDS
I kindly suggest you “stretch” the stretch before dressing. That is, put a stretch between your two hands and split as if you were about to put on his 3 X head bigger than his real head. In this way, the stretch becomes “a little stronger”. Repeat until you find the right disagreement.
In terms of placement, children’s headbands with very large bows look very nice and go back to their heads. Small bow headbands look best when you turn the bow aside. No matter the size, the baby’s headwrap should be pushed back long enough to leave their forehead visible.
Place the ends of your headband in front of your ears where your hair stands. This should leave a small space between the top of your head and the headband. Gently press the headband back until the edges are behind your ears, then lower the top of the head into place.
Any type of headband can damage your hair, and the damage can increase if the band has a built-in comb. They put pressure on your hair which can cause breakage or flyaways, especially when you remove them. They squeeze your head, which can cause headaches.
Wearing headbands or scarves can often cause breakage around your hair, leading to horrible enlarged foreheads and thinning hairlines.
Headbands are one of the safest bed accessories. Like a bed or stuffed animals, they should be removed before the child can sleep because of the dangers of being strangled. In addition, parents should do their best to monitor the baby while wearing a headband because it can be slippery.
When removing your baby’s hair, a soft-bristled brush, or a large toothbrush, should be used, so that your baby’s hair is not pulled back. Avoid using headbands and ponytails, as they can tie your baby’s hair tightly, which can cause damage.
If you have anxiety, consider using bows with a wide, soft band for the first 6+ months until the baby’s skull is even stronger or consult a pediatrician.
