Nail trimming

advice in category: toddler

In the first few months your baby’s nails are very soft, so trimming is not a problem. Use special scissors with rounded ends.

Fingernails should be shaped like the fingertip. Toenails should be trimmed in a straight line without rounded edges, so that they don’t grow in.

If your baby doesn’t like nail trimming, wait until it falls asleep and trim the nails slowly, without haste.
