Nail Cutting Tricks!

Mamas.. do you have any baby nail cutting tricks??

For Monroe and I.. I have been lucky! I simply cut them when he is "chilling" on a blanket or pillow.. as he has gotten older, when he wiggles, I calmly say, "no no" and hold his finger still, then he watches and lets me! It's totally cute. I also count each finger.. and he seems to be wondering what it is all about :) So far.. no bleeds or clips... knock on wood!!!!

What about you!?

    I cut Selena's finger nails once she's fallen asleep. Her toe nails I can do while she's awake, I just distract her with a toy.

      Sounds like you're doing great! I don't remember who it was, but someone on here just bit her baby's finger nails. The more I think about putting something sharp near tiny fingers, it doesn't seem like such a bad idea!

        I wait until they are sleeping while they are babies.
