Do you cut your child's nails when he/she is asleep or awake?

  • My son is 10 months old and I have always done it when he was awake. I have never had a problem because he always just sits still and watches me clip them. He is usually good for the bulb syringe sucking the snot out of his nose.

  • Haha so funny you asked this.. I wait till she is asleep.. but sometimes when I just don't have the time to wait for her to fall asleep THEY grow so fast. I just have her sit on my lap and cut them.

  • awake for my 5mo and 4yo. My 8yo chews her nails (I do her toes when she asks). My 9yo and 10yo cut their own nails.

  • Awake. When they're asleep I want them to stay asleep and not be woken up to only end up cranky.
