How often are you having to trim your LO's nails? Do you use nail clippers, a file, your teeth?

I trim Jacob's nails about 2 times each week. At first I used a nail file but now I am using nail clippers.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I now cut Finn's once a week, and Moose (who's 4) gets her's cut every other week. It's amazing how fast kids' nails grow!

I feel like I need to cut Addy's every day - lol! But, I cut them a couple of times a week, although it probably isn't enough, I swear they grow as soon as I cut them! I hate cutting the toenails...they are impossible!

I cut Reagan's about every other week, she picks at her nails, bad habit and I am working on getting her to stop, but it's hard!

I cut them maybe once every 2 weeks. Sometimes once a week if I can get him to sit still long enough. I swear I have a wild child who flails all crazy like when I nurse him (that is usually when I clip them with the clipper). I have never been able to bite them. I've tried but they were too thin.

Thank you Shortcake for my beautiful siggy!

I had to buy scissors for Nattie's nails. Her nails grow so fast I am trimming them weekly, and somehow, she is still able to scratch me.

I use a clipper and just do it when I notice his nails are getting long.
