Tips for nail cutting
It is best to cut the nails with the child's hand open, but simply fix the baby's fingers with his own thumb. The NUK Baby Nail Clipper's special design with finger ring and extra contact surface offers more safety. Due to the stable position in the hand, parents have more control in the execution. The anti-slip perforation on the back of the handle helps to prevent slipping when cutting. Midwives also recommend cutting nails when the baby is asleep. This prevents it from fidgeting when cutting. The nails are particularly soft and easy to cut immediately after bathing. The NUK Baby Nail Clipper is made of stainless steel and delivers high quality even if it should fall into the water.
Nail Clippers or Baby Nail Scissors
Many parents ask themselves whether they should use clippers or scissors. Both tools are suitable for cutting. But it is important that they are rounded at the ends - so nothing can happen to the child. The advantage of the baby nail clipper: The whole nail does not have to be shortened immediately. Especially at the beginning the nails grow very fast, so it is not uncommon to cut them several times a week. The holder of the NUK Baby Nail Clipper is removable and easy to clean. A separate nail collecting basin also offers maximum hygiene.

Cutting fingernails and toenails for babies and toddlers
Cutting fingernails and toenails often turns out to be more difficult than expected. However, this is necessary because small fingernails often grow very quickly and regular cutting can prevent unpleasant scratches. Also toenails must be shortened regularly, they do not grow as fast as fingernails, but the cutting offers protection against ingrowth of the nail. For fingernail cutting there are special scissors, clips and files especially for babies and toddlers.
In the first weeks
In the first four weeks after birth it is not necessary to shorten the nails. However, if you notice that they are getting too long, you should start cutting your child's nails twice a week on a regular basis. You can also check your toenails each time, but they only need to be cut about twice a month. The shape of the toenails should be kept straight to prevent ingrowth. The fingernails, on the other hand, should always be kept short and round so that no sharp edges, the baby or you could hurt.
From the sixth to eighth week of life, special products make sense, as the nails then become harder.
It can quickly happen that the little one fidgets, the scissors slip off and the fingertip bleeds. This is not only painful, but can also lead to the fact that your little one in the future no longer or only with much resistance the nails can be cut. Therefore, you should always use a moment when your baby is as calm as possible.
Soft nails can make shortening easier - if the child is tired and relaxed after bathing, use the moment as an opportunity to shorten the fingernails of your child. Always hold your fingers carefully. You can push the fingertip a little away from the nail and use scissors with rounded ends to make it work best.
If a little blood nevertheless flows, don't worry, simply stop the bleeding with a piece of gauze and light pressure. If after some time it has still not stopped bleeding and generally in case of larger injuries, seek medical advice.
The usual means of nail care are nail scissors, clippers and files. There are special instruments for babies and toddlers, specially designed for the baby.
Baby scissors: The nail scissors should be made of high-quality, rustproof materials and have rounded ends. The handle should be pleasantly large for you, so that it will not be uncomfortable for you to hold the scissors in the long run, but the cutting surface should be smaller than with normal nail scissors.
Nail clipper: As an alternative to scissors, you can use a clipper suitable for babies and toddlers. Both have the advantage that the tip can be pushed a little away from the nail by placing the instrument on the finger.
Nail arrows: A file is particularly suitable for smoothing irregularities and protruding edges. Care should be taken that the skin is not injured and that a softer strength of the nail arrows is selected.
