How often do you trim baby's nails? every couple days... when she gets upset, she claws her face so I have to keep them short at all times.

What do you use, clippers or nail file or both? mainly clippers but I try to use a baby nail file to smooth them.

How does baby tolerate getting there nails trimmed? Depends on her mood... I try to talk and sing to her but sometimes have to cut a couple then wait a bit!

When do you trim them (like while baby's sleeping or awake)? usually when she is awake... I always forget when she is sleeping lol.

How often do you trim baby's nails? I trim them every other day, to every 3 days tops. Sometimes its a few days in a row. People have talked about his sharp baby nails but they don't realize that they don't grow like adult nails!

What do you use, clippers or nail file or both? I use clippers. If he is extra squirmy I will use a nail file. But I am bad, I use MY nail file, not the baby one that barely even files the nail.

How does baby tolerate getting there nails trimmed? He loves playing with his hands, so as you can guess, he does not like it when you hold his fingers out and he can't move them. He doesn't cry though, he just squirms and tries to pull his hand back.

When do you trim them (like while baby's sleeping or awake)? I do it when he is awake. He naps in his crib in the dark, so I am not going to try to use a flashlight to do it. Plus, half the time he sleeps with his arms up and bent so that his hands are under his head. lol
