Finger & Toe Nails

← Newborn Child

The baby’s nails will grow rapidly and may be trimmed. Do this with great care and caution since the skin that grows up along the underside of the nails may be joined to the nail much further out than on an older individual. Trimming too short may cause bleeding. It is also Ok to file down your baby’s nails. Try not to keep the hands covered all the time. Your baby needs to explore the world with his hands.
