    Hiya everyone,i did something very bad :nope:
    I was cutting LO's finger nails and usually he sits still while i do it but something big and red on a cartoon came on the tv...:dohh::dohh:(He loves the tv and anything red:dohh:) so he turned quickly and i chopped too far down on his thumb nail and it bled quite alot:cry:

    He cried for a few minutes and it doesnt bother him too much now but i feel soooooo bad!:nope:

    Now he has a tiny little finger nail left and he keeps looking at it and wiggling his thumb.

    Hope i havnt done too much damage:cry:
    Silly mummy!

    Oh dear... I did this to my baby when he was still in hospital ! He was born with reeeeally long fingernails and I tried to cut them but just nipped the top. Of course my hubby had to show everyone what I had done.. shouted at him in the end lol I felt bad enough with out him making it worse.

    Did it before by accident of course and it is possible that I may do it again by accident. However, the little guy does need his nails trimmed or he'll scratch his face (or ear) something fierce. So, that being said, will be trimming the nails again whenever needed.

    I did this when Poppy was 2 days old. She was born with such long nails and wouldn't keep her scratch mitts on. Since then i've done it 2 more times and every time i cry for longer than she does! I think everyone has done it sweetie, don't worry xx

    I did this to Noah when he was tiny, he still has a scar now and DH always brings it up lol! I remember it like it was yesterday, blood was everywhere, I wrapped it up in a tea towel and ran for the bus to the doctors, got there and doctor just put a plaster on it :dohh: I phoned DH in tears, felt like the worst mummy in the world but its a really common thing to do!

    I can sympathise - i did this to my first son when he was a week old. The nails and skin are so soft and small! From then on i always do the babies nails when they are asleep and i use small scissors rather than the clippers coz i feel i can control them better. From what i read of the other posters there are lots of us who have cut the babies finger by mistake so dont feel too bad! x
