  • I used a small pair of baby scissors and waited until they were sound asleep.

  • I did it when the baby was sleeping, carefully with a regular nail clipper.

  • They have nail clippers made for babies. Do it carefully! Their nails r fragile and tear easily.

  • I use the baby nail clippers, and wait until he is asleep.

  • Please never cut them when the baby is awake.

  • The only way I'm able to clip my baby's nails is when she's nursing.

  • My son is 10mos and it takes food for him, my husband reading him a book and me cutting his nails.

  • I lay him on the changing table and sing songs to him while I clip. Nonsense about which fingernail we're clipping. He just gets interested and watches.

  • Easier for me with baby sitting on my lap and facing away from me with baby nail clippers
