  • That's all I use. The nail files came in a baby first aid/ medicine kit I bought. I tried the baby nail clipper and cut his poor little finger!! I file his nails when he's asleep and it's pretty easy. Now that he's older(5 months), I've been thinking about trying the clippers again. Of course, now I can't find them! =)

  • I use them, but they dont work well for me. I just clip his nails myself since he was about 2 months

  • when she was born that was all I used cause the first time I tried the clippers I just couldn't get the nails so that was how I kept her nails short

  • Nope... I usually used the baby nail clippers, or I'd just bite my son's nails while he was drinking a bottle or nursing. Now that he's almost 2, he won't let me bite them, so I have to clip them... but I still don't file them.
