Come on! Its almost impossible to cut them, takes 20 years to file them! But as much as I try to put a barrier between baby and I, he just. Claws the crap outta me! I have bloody scratches all over, ppl would think I have a cat!

 Hes 16 months teach him not to scratch you. Tell him no and move his hand. It may take a while but it will click sometime

Mine too! Hannah is 9m also, she finds it fascinating. My 3&4 yr old love thawing their fingernails & toenails done.

I just do it Gabe is sleeping, and probably will for awhile. He's 5 months.

My 11 month old sits happily and watches until were done clipping his...he's so fascinated by it. We've trimmed his nails weekly since birth so he is used to it.

Try when baby is sleeping. It's the only way I can do it. My son is now 3, and still fights me like crazy.

 i know, i can only cut them when shes sleeping, and sometimes even that doesnt work, and then she loves to touch peoples faces now.
