Baby nails

My baby is 11 weeks old. I have cut her nails so that I can wean off mittens but her nails are still sharp enough to scratch her face. What can I do? Use an emery board? but her nails are quite soft still.

Hello there. Initially i was like you too! Wanted my baby not to wear mittens as he can explore more on his own and touch things but i encountered the same thing as you. He will wake up every morning with new scratch on his face. Their nails are so tiny and yet sharp. I just put on his mittens back till he turned 3 months old. I felt that it was easier for me to trim his nails once he was 3 months old as i was able to get in the corners and trim it nicely.

Perhaps day time dun wear and then wanna sleep, wear. Initially there will be few scratches, after that they will adapt to it. :)

I use a baby electric nail file! It’s easy to use and won’t accidentally cut baby or anything

may i know what brand it is?

No too young to file... just cut as close as possible and hope no scratching

I use a nail trimmer. Very very safe.
