Acrylic nails and babies...

My friend does nails and she wants me to come in and get mine done but Im worried about taking my infant with me (the fumes and such) I cant leave him at home cause no one is there. Anybody know anything about this?

  • i wouldnt take the baby to get your nails done, but then again i also dont think its the best idea to have acrylic nails period. at least not til his immune system is higher. and if you do, make sure to keep them as short as possible because so many germs and just general yucky stuff gets into them and can cause some bad things.

  • I wouldn't take my kid around the fumes, I can barely stand the smell myself. That's just me though.

  • I had a friend do acrylic nails when my son was about 10mo and I was always scratching him, I felt so bad I had my friend take them off.
