My baby was scared of a haircut! What did I do?

I remember Jerry on his first day in the saloon. How can I forget that day! The whining began the moment we stepped in and as I put him on the barber’s chair – all hell broke loose! We tried everything to calm him – his favourite video on YouTube, his toy and the kind saloon staff even broke into a jig just to pacify him, but nothing helped! Unable to bear the incessant cries, I requested the barber to stop, paid the money and just left in a rush. End result: I had a boy with hair so long that I had to use hair clips to keep it off his eyes and face. On one of our evening walks, a nice lady said what a cute girl he was… So that night, I steeled myself and tried cutting his hair myself, almost strand by strand. I must have spent a couple of hours that night trying to cut his hair. This was definitely not a sustainable plan.
Next morning, I told myself “enough”– and had a vent out session with a friend who listened to me patiently as I narrated my tale of woe, at the end of it – she retired to her room and returned with the device and introduced it to me as the Havells baby hair clipper; she was amazed that I had gone through so much trouble when there was a ready child-friendly solution at hand!
My friend told me that these hair clippers are safe to use – It has ceramic blades, so no scratches and no cuts. I had a closer look at this heaven-sent device and voila – it is small, lightweight, and just like a brush, so the child is likely to accept it faster (and more easily than the scary looking scissors!). And what’s more, it is low noise so Jerry won’t be scared – and it has a detachable head for easy cleaning so I’m assured of hygiene too. It is designed for self-use and can be used by the mom on her baby – and with the mom cutting the hair, the child is definitely more at ease.
And I must make a special mention of this accessory that comes along this hair clipper –it’s a stencil. Now the different styles of stencils help you make different creative hairstyles for your baby! How cool is that! Well I am now a proud owner of Havells baby clipper; the result: a happy, well-groomed Jerry and a happy, relaxed me too!
