I need hints and tips on how to go about cutting my 6 month old ds's finger and toe nails.
Obviously he's too small to understand that Mummy might cut his fingers if he squirms too much and will fight with me and dh if one of us holds him and one of us tries to cut his nails. Can't really do it when he sleeps either as he tends to wake up.
No idea - we wonder whether social services will be called when we cut DS's (he's 16mo - they get more wriggly and louder IME!). He loathes it with a passion - hates his hands and feet being held tight enough for us to do it!
Do know a couple of people put the TV on with an appealing programme or video - that might work? Doesn't for mine though!
i sit jess on my lap, facing away from me, bear hug her and hold each finger individually and snip away.... literally just done it too! DH was trying before calling me through but he just cant get her to sit still.... mummy's magic touch?
I have bitten them when he was tiny, but he's far too squirmy atm to even bite them. He's got scratchy bits on the corners again so when he rubs his eyes or ear flicks when he's tired he marks himself.
