Easy Trimming with Nuby Nail Clippers

As a Nuby Parent Blogger, I received the Nuby Nail Clippers for review.

I must admit, trimming baby and child nails is the one thing I dread.  I’ll change a hundred blow out diapers, wipe up a thousand dumped saucy dishes and cater to our crazy picky eaters over trimming nails. When it goes well, it’s great.  When it goes badly, it goes miserably badly.

But, I’m a pro with three kids now, right?  Well, maybe not a pro, but I’ve learned a few things that might come in handy for the new or desperate mom.  Here are my 3 tips to get those little nails trimmed:

1. Trim while they are confined and busy.

I know it sounds nuts, but what I like to do is trim toward the end of snack time.  I make sure that BGB, who just turned 2, is strapped in her booster seat and I’ll give her a cracker or two to hold in one hand while I trim the other hand’s nails. I say to do this toward the end because then clean up is easy and you don’t have to worry about where those little nails may have flown.  For the older boys, things got easier around 3 years of age which was great timing because they were no longer in a booster seat.  I turn on a show and let them sit in my lap and watch while I trim.

2. Find the time of day, or activity, that works for you.

I’ve read so many baby books that say to trim while the kids are sleeping or at bathtime. In fact, most things I’ve read in a book or the sage advice from friends just didn’t work out for us.   It’s all trial and error with parenting, folks. So find what works for you and if it happens to be in a booster seat at mealtime I won’t judge 😉

3. Use the Right Tools

Just like other tasks, having the right tools can make all the difference. I’m sure you’ve placed your baby’s hand in yours and just stared at how tiny it is by comparison.  Having nail clippers that are the right size DOES make all the difference.  I loved the Nuby Nail Clippers we received because they were the ideal size for baby and preschooler alike. They are also easy for me, the parent, to hold and use.  I didn’t feel like they were too small for my hands and yet they did a great job on BGB’s fingers.  There was even a nice little cover for the clippers themselves which is ideal here because I have 3 sets of little hands that could possibly find the clippers.  That bit of extra protection gives me that split second to grab them should they ever reach the clippers in storage!
