  • Nail polish (with some very rare exceptions) has formaldehyde in it. While it is curing, it is releasing volatile gases that babies should not be inhaling.

    So, no. Probably not a good idea.

  • Not something I'd do, honestly. There ARE polishes that are safe for toddlers but may not be safe for infants. And if yours CAN suck her toes...bye bye to all your efforts!

    There are easier ways to make them look girly. **grin**

  • I've been painting my DD's toes since she was 2 months old. At first I'd do it while she was sleeping. Now whenever I paint my nails she HAS to have hers done as well and will sit perfectly still...not even 2 years old yet. I see nothing wrong with it. There's polishes out there that dry in 60 seconds that work really well too.
