 Someone said it is better to bite off a baby's finger nails than to
use baby nail clippers. I, personally think that's gross & spreads germs,
but I was just wondering if this is true or not.

I don't bit or cut them. I would get tiny emery boards and file them. I tried cutting them with my first daughter whenever she was asleep but it would just wake her up. Filing just always seemed to work better for us.

I used little nail clippers and was super careful.

I used nail clippers. Biting them off sounded scary and raggedy to me.

Bite them off in the shower then wash her little hands.
