How do you feel when your daughter is bleeding because instead of nails you cut her flesh? Horrible.; But as a new mother I did , that too not just once but twice.; I cried and cried the whole day and I still feel guilty if I think of that. I thought nail cutting was easy task but it wasn't,; So I started fretting over when I had cut her nails. I delegated the work to my mom but she wasn't comfortable as well. I had a small clipper to cut her nails , which wasn't helping me.
Babychakra was (is) my companion throughout my journey, I asked fellow moms and many suggested Baby Scissors. The scissors is 1 year old still does a perfect job, It is very safe to cut her nails. For me breastfeeding time was perfect to cut her nails as she was busy milking me, but when she turned one and understood things I started telling her that I'm cutting her nails and she must show. I also cut my nails in front of her so she was sure that the scissors is not going to hurt her.
I also use a small brush and clean her nails while giving her bath. I see many mommies applying nail paint to their babies, Never do that. The toxins in nail paint can harm the baby.
