How do i get my 2 yr old boy to stop chewing on his nails and fingertips?

I've tried putting lemon juice on them but i doesn't affect him.

Any other ideas?

  • There's a clear nail polished designed specifically for that. Just look in the nail health area of your local store... Worked wonders for my daughter and worked for my son for a while, but I need to do another round...

  • My dd is 4 and does this....I have tried the clear nail polish...it is VERY bitter.

    It may have lessened it, but it didnt stop it.

    Good luck!
