Painting baby's nails is just dumb.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

My sil painted her 6mo's fingernails a bright Barbie pink and then bitched for 3days about how the baby gnawed all the paint off. Don't paint a baby's nails and she won't chew the paint off, idiot! Besides, is it even safe for baby to ingest that stuff?

I think painting a baby's fingernails is dumb. What do you think? Is painting a baby's fingernails okay?

I wear open toed shoe's all the time and don't paint my nails. Am I not a lady because I don't put paint on my body? I don't think it's the polish that defines a women and if it is then I should throw away my education, my morals, my sensitivity, my selflessness, my compassion, and get a sex change! LMFAO!!!




Although I'm sure it was cute as hell

I painted my dd's toenails when she was 8 days old. It's cute. Besides, she's a lady, and ladies never get caught wearing open toed shoes without her toes being done.

we didn't paint her fingernails, just her toenails. she didn't stick things in her mouth, still doesn't so it wouldn't have been an issue for us.

I never did fingernails as I was worried about the polish being chewed and it's got all sorts of gross chemicals in it. I did paint my dd's toenails when she was little and my eldest niece's, with my sister's permission. I've also painted my boys' nails, but not until they were older and could ask when their sister and I were doing our nails. To me it's just a fun thing to do and explore colors we like.

I think painted nails is dumb. If we were meant to have it, we'd be born with it. :/

 I'm with you. I think it's fine when they're toddlers and less likely to chew the paint off, but when they're infants, why bother? There are some polishes that are designed specifically for children because they know the kids will likely chew them, but most of the others aren't really safe for that. I'd just say wait until they're older and paint them with the safe polishes rather than doing it when they're babies and don't even know what's going on.

Ditto here.  For my dd, it wasnt till she was 4-5 when I did her nails because she asked.

Lol, s/o paints our 7 month old's nails at least once a week. We have special "piggy paint" just for her.
