Where I come from, there’s this old wives’ tale which says that if you cut the tip of your baby’s eyelashes, then it will grow darker, thicker and longer as s/he gets older.
My first baby was 2 weeks old when I heard about this. With a pair of baby scissors, I cut just the tip of his eyelashes while he was sleeping. I’m sure he didn’t feel anything, as he continued to sleep peacefully. I have to say that the simple trick works for him. He has the most beautiful eyelashes. I wish mine are like his.
When my second baby was born, having learned the trick, I did the same. Nope, it didn’t work. He has ordinary eyelashes up to now.
So, this old wives’ tale is… just an old wives’ tale :-).
