Trimming Nails, Not Fingers
What is the best way to trim your babies fingernails? That what the topic of my moms group’s first meeting.
I cut my babies thumb (yes, her thumb) and made her bleed her second day at home! I cried hysterically over this. Afraid to do it again I tried to filing her nails, but it was hard to file the edges without cutting the baby with the sharp edge.
Many suggestions were given by other new moms, here’s a couple that seem to work best for everyone:
1. Purchase the curved nail scissors but instead of cutting to the curve of the finger cut away from it. This way takes three cuts.
