  • I dropped the fingernail clippers in my 3 month old sons face once and gave him a nick under his eye. Felt like such an ass! He was ok though! Imagine what happened to us as seatbelts, lead paint etc...We are all ok! She should be just fine!

  • give yourself a break, i knicked my son with the fingernail clippers and he bled for the first time, he was fine didnt even phase him, but I felt terrible. It happens to all of us. She will be just fine

  • This does not make you a bad mom. A bad mom would not care that something had happened. Just watch that the nick doesn't get infected, and go on sweetie. Maybe even a bit of triple antibiotic ointment on it. She really won't remember it.

  • naw, your a great mom, you cared enough to be worried. I just stabbed my daughter in the nose the other day with my thumbnail, she moved as I was picking her up and got her right on the nose. She has a little round scab. She seems to be doing fine.
