New Mum’s Urgent Warning After 10-Week-Old Son Almost Loses Toes

New mum Heather Fricke recently got a horrible scare when her husband went to dress their baby son, Jacob.

After Heather had changed Jacob’s nappy she had put him down for his standard two hour nap, after which she fed him and changed his nappy again.

When she handed him over to her husband, however, he spotted something was very wrong – and Heather is desperate to warn others.

Heather, whose hair almost amputated her baby’s toes, took to Facebook to warn other mums following her gruesome session with doctors after the incident.

According to her, Doctors would have amputated her son’s toes if she didn’t remove the little hair she could when she found her baby in distress.

My son Jacob is 10 weeks old and he’s never cries except for his basic needs, well today after his diaper change I put him down for his standard 2 hours nap.

He woke up, I fed and changed both his diaper and clothes for a party we were going to… I handed him to his dad Tommy to put socks on him when Tommy realized his two toes were blue and tied together with a strand of hair!!!

I immediately took off what I could and had to take him to the ER where we spent an hour and a team of 5 doctors trying to get the rest of MY HAIR off his two toes.

Doctors said if I didn’t take off the hair that I was able to get off that his 2 toes they would’ve had to be amputated… he’s doing just well, in a little pain and his poor toes look like they hurt so bad.

CHECK YOUR BABY’S TOES AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN!!! And if you have a baby boy even his PENIS. Yes I said penis… they are such tiny baby’s and our hair can be such a hazard but it’s something that we never really pay attention to.. so please share this with all your mom friends with little babies!!!! Tracy Sonja !!!

This is 12 hours after the hair was removed 😔”

  • This thing that happens to chicken and they even lost their legs. Thank God for baby Jacob. I hate seeing hairs around the house so as soon as I finish brushing my hair /weavons I sweep.
