It's funny because while cutting your baby's nails seems like a little thing, many parents I've known get freaked a bit when the time comes to do it. That time will come soon too because baby finger nails grow super quick. Because your baby's nails are very sharp, and his skin delicate, you'll want to trim them about once a week to prevent scratches. Here are some tips...

Have the right tools. You can use adult clippers, but it's so much easier and safer to use a baby-safe pair like The First Years Arc Deluxe Nail Clippers or try a soft emery board to file the nails down a little. Keep it chill. Make sure your baby is calm, not fussy, tired, or hungry. Keep it EXTRA chill. Sometimes, if you're very nervous or your tot is cranky, it's easier to cut your baby's nails while he's sleeping. Get some help. Have your partner hold your baby while you cut his nails. Keep it steady. Hold your baby's palm and the finger you're working on steady. Stay calm. If you accidentally cut your baby you may see a bit of blood. Try not to panic - it happens. Dab the area with a sterile gauze pad and leave it to dry in the open air. Bandages are not recommended because if your baby manages to get it off he could chock on the bandage.
