Any tips on how to clip a toddler's toe nails?

My daughter will not let us touch her feet. She loves getting her finger nails clipped, though not her toe nails. It was easier when she was younger and I could do it while she was sleeping - that does not work anymore and will just wake her up. Anything that has worked well for you?

    Elise gives us a hard time when clipping her fingernails. When we cut her toe nails we give her a toy or my phone. We also use a little scissor its safer for us. Have you accidentally cut some skin while cutting her toe nails? I know I did that when Elise was a baby I still feel awful when I remember it took us a while for her to let us cut her toe nails again :(

    No we have not clipped her skin on her toe nails did on her fingernails a few times when she was younger. She wants to clip her toe nails by herself. Will have try some different toys to see if a specific one might help.

      My daughter hates her nails being clipped, she makes me cut her toenails first.

      How do you get her to corporate so you can clip them?

        Distract her, let her hold the nail polish bottle while i clip the other hand or put on her favorite show pbskids.org Super why, takes awhile but i do a couple and give her a break if fussy but keep trying with different distractions. Show her how you do yours and let her play with the nail file.

          When they are asleep. :) Or I distract her hands with a toy. She usually wants hers clipped when I do the rest of the kids.
