Baby Manicure

Trimming baby nails can make anyone a little nervous. As a licensed Cosmetologist I’ve done my fair share of manicures and pedicures, but when it comes to trimming my little baby girl’s nails I do get nervous. So I thought I’d share some tips that help me when Seleste visits our in home salon šŸ™‚

Tip 1: Trim nails after a bath because the nails will be softer and easier to trim.

Tip 2: Gather your supplies

I use a nail trimmer a flashlight and a file. I also trim her nails while she is laying down since she loves to kick! I hold the flashlight in my mouth and shine it right on her little hands and feet this way I can see the white free edge much better as I trim.

Next I file the nails and then clean the nail dust off of her fingers and toes with a wet clothe.

Last Tip: I place her feet flat on the surface on the bed this way she doesn’t kick.

The end result is a happy baby and a happy Mommy! No scratched faces no sharp nails.
