  • i cut my 6 month olds finger nails atleast a couple of times a week, but thats because they grow like weeds! Her toe nails i only have to cut every couple weeks. and shes real good about letting me do it, but shes also little and has no idea whats going on lol

  • I cut my four month old's finger nails about every other day. I've only cut her toe nails once so far. They don't really grow much. Her finger nails drive me crazy though. I guess mine grow that fast too though cuz my nails get long fairly quickly.

  • I always try to cut my 8 month old sons' nails while he is drinking his bottle. He is so focused on eating that he doesn't realize I have the clippers.
