2. Baby Nail Clippers
The prospect of trimming your baby’s nails can be scary. Those fingers are teeny tiny and their nails are even smaller. If you’re like me, you might be paralyzed with fear of hurting them with the big ol’ clippers you have around the house.
While a lot of people recommend baby nail clippers, the best solution I’ve found is baby nail scissors.
They’re far safer and also easier to use. Clippers seem like they’re fine at first, but it’s so easy to accidentally cut your baby’s sensitive finger skin with them. A sudden movement and things can go downhill quickly, and you’ll end up drawing blood.
My favorite baby nail scissors are made by Piyo Piyo (click here to see them on Amazon). They’re curved, which makes them easy to use, and the blades are rounded making it almost impossible to accidentally cut the skin.
If you’re thinking that scissors are more intimidating than clippers, don’t be. They’re actually MUCH safer than clippers. What makes them way safer is that because they’re scissors, you can see what you’re cutting. This isn’t possible with clippers, so it’s much, much safer.
These clippers come with a cute little storage case that keeps them from getting rusty, but you should always clean then after use anyway to make sure no rust happens.
Even the best baby nail clippers don’t compare to these scissors. Well worth it!
