Message length 300 characters recommended

It feels horrible to cut baby's fingernails too short but other than sucking on the finger or thumb if it happens to bleed there's not much else to do after it's been done.

To prevent it from happening again, cut baby's fingernails when they are asleep and less likely to squirm. I also liked to hold their little fingers still and cut them even with the tips of their fingers.

Or you can chew of the nails, as odd as that sounds. You could also tear them off gently with your own fingers.
