Titleļ¼šTrimming baby's nails

Narrator: Babies' nails grow rapidly. You need to trim them once to twice a week. Find a place with good lighting. The best time to trim your baby's nails is when she lies quietly especially when she is asleep. Hold your baby's fingers with your thumb and index finger and separate her fingers when you trim with a baby nail clipper or scissors. Be careful not to cut your baby's fingers. The easier way to trim baby's nails is to push down on the skin of her fingertip and trim along the curve of the nail gently. Don't trim too close to the skin. Don't leave any sharp edges on the nails to prevent babies from scratching themselves. You may shape the sharp edges with an emery board.
