How Soon Can I Cut My Newborn’s Nails?

A newborn’s nails are so delicate that moms are scared of cutting them. But these nails grow about 0.1 mm every day. Since babies do not have control over their arms, they may scratch their faces. Question is, how soon can you cut your newborn’s nails?

Answer:

As soon as you can. Even after giving birth. Do this in a well-lighted place so as not to cut his skin. Also, it would be best if you do it after bath while the nails are soft. In addition, try clipping while he’s asleep our you’ll just wrestle with him when awake.
