No: Two phrases that should not in my opinion be used in the same sentence: babies toes and superglue. You might consider taking the child in to the pediatrician to be seen.

No: I would not recommend applying super glue on a baby. Their rate of healing is much faster than an adults and an cuts will typically heal within a couple of days. Protect the toes and if you are concerned with non-healing or infection please see a specialist immediately.
