I tried trimming her nails and I cut one of her fingers. It's a huge chunk, and bleeding. She screamed for awhile but is now sleeping. It bled for 30 min, I just put pressure on it with a paper towel. I feel sooooo bad. Has this ever happened to you? How can I avoid it? Her nails grow so fast and she scratchesher face
I'm so scared of this. I never use the clippers for this reason. It may sound odd and a little gross but I usually just bite her nails it works so much better and I never worry about hurting her. I started doing it because my cousin did it for her LO and told me about it.
Don't worry, it was an accident. It's happened to a lot of us. I did it once when ds was first born, and I felt terrible too, but it healed and he doesn't remember it at all. It's just so hard to cut their nails at that age as they're so tiny and they grow SO fast. After the one incident, we ended up just filing his nails down until he was about 6 months old bc it was just too hard to use the clippers.
Yes me! I used nail clippers when DS was a little baby, and was cut his finger with them. It was horrible! It only bled for a couple of minutes to be fair but I was all for calling an ambulance .
I switched to nail scissors and it hasn't happened again. Everyone told me to just bite their nails but it doesn't work for me- I think I have defective teeth! But could be worth a try for you
I've accidently cut too far down My LO HATES having his nails trimmed so he makes it very hard, he tries pulling his hand away while I am trying to do them. I used to bite them when he was little and didn't take much notice of it and they were a lot thinner and easier to come off. But not he just moves way too much :/
