When was the firsts time you....

painted your daughters nails? (If ever). How old was she? Basically im wondering when it would be appropriate to paint my daughters nails for the first time...when shes old enough to sit still long enough for me to do them while shes awake? Or would it be ok to paint them while shes sleeping and hold her hand while they dry. She'll be two weeks tomorrow and I dont plan on doing it anytime soon I just want to know when it would be ok. Like in a few months or long?

  • waited until she was 3, because babies are always putting finger in their mouths and nail polish has formaldehyde and other chemicals in it.

  • my oldest had hers painted in her hospital pictures! she was so little she didnt put them in her mouth.... I did it until she started being a tad active than I started... Shes going to be 6 in a few days and I dont let her nails get painted I now see it as shes just a little girl and should stay like that! I dont know why I changed my mind but I did..
