  • I wouldn't. They often suck on their fists and stuff like that, and you don't want her to end up eating the polish.

  • One should not because they put their hands in to their mouths and the polish can then end up being eaten.

  • Not on hands. I consider it safe on toes until baby starts chewing on feet. My cousin had too with her twins. She couldn't tell them apart. So yup that my opinion.

  • No other than the twin example

  • I started nail polish on my dd at around 10mths old or less i dnt remember but i never had that toe sucking problem lol. Never did the hands. Its up to and no ones opinion should change it. If you want to then go ahead and do it.

  • I wouldn't, but if I were I would get non toxic polish. I think it's called piggy paint.

  • Not on hands or feet as they put them in their mouths too much

  • Not until they are old enough to ask for it, at that point it is less likely that the polish will be eaten.
