  • clip. When they were infants I bit them to avoid nipping the fingers with the clippers.

  • I never understood the file idea. That would take so long. What baby is going to sit still for that? I clip.

  • I am going to clip. Well, I am a bit nervous to do so. So i am going to delegate that responsibility to my husband till I feel more comfortable to do so.

  • Neither. I clipped his thumb once when he was just a few months old and it shook me up so badly that I've made his dad do it ever since.
