Hi, it's me, Aizay. This used to be my parent's blog, for when we were kids. Me and Coraline, my sister, are still kids, but we've taken over, and we plan to dominate the blog.
Never, ever let a first-time father use the nail clippers. Aiden didn't seem to mind much after the initial wail of pain, but I felt like Daddy Dearest.

I think that the latest thing is not to use clippers just for the reason you found out. You need to file the little one's nails. I saw cousin Jani do it with Sydney.MOM
Yeah. The only thing I can't understand is: his nails were so long they were curling around under his finger. How are you supposed to file that? Anyway, that nail clipper is retired. Buh-bye.
The author of "The Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy" suggests biting the nails off yourself. Maybe dads have much bigger teeth than Mommys do, so maybe you shouldnt try that one, Dave.I still bleed Sophie's fingertips once in a while. Doesnt seem to hurt the cuttie as bad as it hurts the cutter. And it doesn't get easier as they get older- they're stronger and know how to fight!Marjie
And sooooooo....it seems you have enough advice so won't add.....(I was gonna say file but Grandma beat me.) You get points for doing it....Enjoy....hugs and kisses especially under the chin to Aiden....Auntie Chuckles
Frank: Dude! Use a nail file!
Frank: Well, but if you chop off the finger, the nail won't grow back. So, that's easier.
