Q.

cut hair before 12mnths.

I know there is an old wive' s tail not cut baby' s hair before he is 12mnths old. Is there any particular reason why? And can I cut his hair?

You do not really have to wait until your bay is one year old before cutting his hair, but the real reason for cutting hair should be the length and whether it is getting into your baby's eyes.
