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 didn't paint my DD's nails until she was about 3.  It never occurred to me to paint them when she was a baby and I definitely wouldn't have wanted her putting her fingers in her mouth.

The concern I have about painting a baby's nails is that they do gnaw it off. I believe there is some baby safe nail polish, but really, the baby is not a doll. Wait until she can get some pleasure from painted nails.

What is LMFAO?








Quoting Jaycee878:

 





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





Quoting moniagee:

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.

That's a dumb comment. If we were meant to wear clothes we would be born with them. If we were meant to be born with higher intelligence we would be born that way.

Meanwhile, you give your babies plastic toys and things that have toxins.....

Not you in particular.... But you as in all of us.

Uh, wouldn't call it dumb, some people just think its cute. I wouldn't do it though til my child is at an age where her hands aren't constantly in her mouth.

 I did it once with my youngest now 17 months, was for a photo shoot and baby safe polish. But it went on and came of with in an hour. lol

I usually start to paint my girls toenails around 12 months old, older 2 are summer babies. lol ny 17 month old gets her toes, I wont do fingers till almost 2 yrs old.
