    Aw I'm sure she will be fine I always bite my babies nails for this reason, until they can sit still for me to cut them

    DH did that when DD was 2 days old - she came out with claws and kept scratching herself. I chew DD's nails as well.

    I'm sure she'll be fine. We all do it I gather from this thread.

    I was so nervous with my first child to clip her nails so I asked my mum to do it and BANG - she cut her little finger. So we had a mumma and a grand mumma that felt terrible. As per pp I now also use little nail scissors and have never had a problem with them. Im + 3 kids now do that's lots of nail cutting. Out some first aid cream on it, and a bandaid for a day or so until the sensitivity is gone, then take the bandaid off so it can air and heal quicker. Don't feel bad - these things happen xoxo

    I've done it. I think DS now recognises the clippers and squirms even more when he sees them coming. HGe didn't fuss too much at the time though. Nails is now a two person job. DH holds his hand and I hold his finger to trim the nail.

    I did it once to DD Threw out the clippers straight away and got baby nail scissors, they're so much easier.
