  • With onespacialmoms idea, which is great, before doing that, put tea tree oil on the nails first. I had this problem with my son. And clear nail polish over it helped a whole lot. Dilute the tea tree oil. I filled a container with about 20 cotton balls, about 3 teaspoons of tea tree oil and 1/4 cup of warm water. Shook it up and rubbed it on his toes. Yes, i was recommened by his peddie, the clear nail polish will help them grow strong. Clipping them also helps, but each child is different, contact your peddie for that.

  • Why don't you try Nail tec. It's a clear polish that helps the nails grow strong.
