  • Why don't you try and keep your baby as natural looking as possible for a while, unless you want to use it to clarify to people that she is a girl and not a boy--then I would use bows instead!

  • No, only because it a very strong smelling chemical and that not good for a baby to inhale as well as nail polish remover.

  • On her toenails yes if she is young enough still to not suck on her toes. If she is old enough to suck on her toes or her fingers for that matter then just buy non toxic polish and you can still do her toes/fingers. It should be fine... Paint away mama!! LOL!!

  • i would say its completely fine. as long as the area is well ventilated so that the smell doesnt linger and basically get your baby high.

  • Grandma paints my daughter's toe nails twice a month and she's fine, and the doctor said she thought it looked cute when I took her in for her 6 month check up, so I'd say you're good.

  • Yes!! So long as they dont put them where you know they are going to ..... right in their little mouths. I think its cute! Just make sure its a hot color!!!

  • Yeah, she'll be fine. Just paint them in a well ventilated room and make sure she doesn't suck on her toes.
