Cut Babys Nails
Sandpaper: I find a simple piece of find sandpaper is very effective at taking off the excess without risking cuts or removing skin. Scissors have taken the end off infant's finger when they moved unexpectedly and nail clippers leave sharp edges. Emory boards remove as much skin as nail. A 1 inch by 2-3 inch sheet of loose sandpaper will last forever and do the job well. ...Read more
Nails: I like to use either a safety scissor or file. I have several parents a year who use the clipper and accidentally get the skin, which is a highly vascularized area which can bleed easily.

I cut my baby's finger with the nail clippers. It bleed for a while & i think it has stopped. I put a bandaid on it. How to i know it's stopped bleed?
Bleeding finger: As with any abrasion or minor scrape, most of this bleeding stops when bandaged as you have done.

I was clipping the baby's nails (4months old) and i nipped his finger tip and couldn't get it to stop bleeding. How do I get it to stop?
Pressure: The primary way to slow blood flow is to place pressure on the wound. In this case you can put a band-aid lengthwise with the pad over the tip and the ends running down the finger.Check it every half hour until you are sure it has stopped, but you can keep the band-aid on to keep it stopped. In the future toss the nippers, use a small sheet of fine sand paper to sand the nails, takes just seconds. ...Read more
