A mum got a shock when she came home from a shopping trip to find her baby daughter completely bald.
“My boyfriend and mother-in-law shaved my baby!” Alexandra58 posted on the US website Babycentre.
She explained that her boyfriend had brought up the idea of shaving a week earlier, suggesting that it would give their baby better hair.
“I called bull and refused,” she added. “Whether it works or not, I’m still upset he chose to do it without my consent and that his mum was a participant, since she’s already in the doghouse for coming over Christmas Eve and smothering her with kisses when she had the flu.
“My poor baby looks so funny and I’m amazed she sat through it.”
The mum says it’s a “cultural thing” for her boyfriend and his family, who are from Mexico.
“He apologised and admitted he was wrong for doing so but it was my mother-in-law’s idea since she gave him a new electric shaver for Christmas and he didn’t let me know because he knew I’d get mad and he wanted her to have pretty hair and he feels he doesn’t have a say in anything else.”
