Haircut solution for wiggly infants and toddlers:
Do you have a swingset? Use the bucket (baby/child) swing in your own backyard for a perfect haircut seat! Your child will be facing away from you and hopefully more interested in looking around your yard than in trying to see what you’re doing! It’s hard to squirm out of, since it’s built with safety in mind. Cut a section of hair, sneak in a couple pushes, then continue cutting. The stray hairs hit the ground instead of your floor. Incentive, safety, distraction… it’s nearly perfect!
