Is It True That Combing Baby’s Hair Will Cause Stretchable Growth?
, my child is 5 months ago I tried to comb my child’s hair because it was only growing a little after balding. Then my mother said that if the baby’s hair was combed, the teeth would be tenuous. The question is what myth?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Neat or not baby teeth growth is not related to the habit of combing hair. This is more influenced by the shape of the jaw, dental care performed, genetic factors, and many other conditions.
Combing baby's hair actually has a good function to make baby's hair look neater. Most importantly, you must be careful in choosing sides for babies. Avoid using a comb that is too pointed and the gap is too tight to avoid injury to the baby's scalp and hair loss. Also avoid your baby from exchanging combs with others to avoid the risk of transmission of infections in the head, for example by fungus, lice, and so on.
In order for your baby's teeth to grow properly, you only need to give your baby enough milk coupled with nutritionally rich MPASI when it is 6 months old. Always keep the oral cavity clean, ie by diligently wiping it using a special washcloth or sterile gauze, and use a special baby toothbrush later when the teeth have grown.
Hope this helps ...
