How often do you trim your babies/toddlers/kids nails?

I trim the babies about once a week since they get like little razor blades! I trim my 6 year olds about twice a month. Do your kids nails grow super fast?

  • My 10 year old has the disgusting habit of biting his, so they never need to be trimmed. My 7 year old gets his trimmed about every week and a half.

  • Whenever needed. My 3y/o dd is a little fashionista. I just have to bring out the nail stuff and she's there with her hands ready. lol I try to file as opposed to cut.

  • best time - when they get out of the tub - the nails are wet and easier to snip - keep doing it at bath time so it's like a ritual
