Cutting Nails, help!

My 16 month will have nothing to do with me doing his nails. It normally takes both of me and my husband to do it because he fights so much. I'm afraid to do it while hes sleeping and wake him up. any suggestions on how to make it easier on everyone!

  • Pick your battles and just cut them while he's asleep! If you use manicure scissors he'll never know.
