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

I am doing Jacob's nails about every two weeks or so. I just wait until they get long. The last time I did them I used the nail clippers and had no trouble at all. I was using a file but now I will just continue to use the nail clippers.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I use a nail clipper most of the time (though if I notice she has a torn nail, I just rip it off with my fingers). I cut them once a week or so, but I complain about her little sharp razors of doom every day, so maybe I should trim them more often.

I use clippers. I've had to do it twice and Jax is 3 1/2 weeks. I bring out the clippers when he starts to scratch himself.

I file or tear them off every couple of days. Using nail clippers scares me until they're old enough to understand to hold still!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!
