Cutting your little one’s nails can be terrifying, especially at first for most new parents who are afraid of drawing blood. For this reason it is important to have special baby nail scissors.
But it is important to keep your baby’s nails shorts for safety because they can easily scratch and cut their own delicate skin.
It is also important to keep babies’ nails cut when they start interacting or playing with other kids to avoid them getting scratched.
To trimm your baby’s nails, first you have to find a good position that allows you access to your infant’s hands.
It would be easier to cut the nails if you wait until your baby’s asleep. It also would be helpful to do it with a partner, while one holds the baby the other can trim the nails. Be sure that you are in a place with good lighting and then, hold your baby’s hand and finger steady with one hand while you cut nail with the other hand.
Use nail scissors with rounded tips for safety or baby clippers. Cut the nails as short as you can and make sure to keep nail’s edges rounded.
As newborns tend to have nails that grow quickly it is recommended to trimm once or twice a week. Toenails though grow more slowly, so a couple of times a month is fine.
Don’t get worried if you accidentally nip the skin. You must use a sterile gauze pad and gently apply a little pressure to stop the bleeding. Don’t put a bandage around the tiny cut because babies like to put their fingers in their mouths.
Don’t be tempted to bite your baby’s nails to keep them shorter because germs from your mouth can get into tiny cuts on your baby’s fingers and can cause infection.
