Clipping toddler's nails Fertile Mertile + D & C 2 kids; Sumter, SC, United States 37083 posts

Does anyone else have a toddler who freaks out when you try to clip their nails? My son has started lately and it's practically impossible to get them trimmed up. I am getting very frustrated and ready to have my husband start doing it, because he won't let me.

My BF does. She clips them while he's sleeping.

DD does, she says it hurts but half the time i haven't even clipped her nail and i make sure i don't get her fingers, she's also started jerking her hands away. She won't let DH clip them either.

My daughter is 4 and she is horrible. She has been like that since she was born. She will fight and we have to hold her down to cut her nails. If I try while she is sleeping she will wake up.

Yeah he acts like i'm hurting him, and pulls his hands away and says no. I have tried just using my fingers to get it, biting them off, and clippers. He hates all of that.

No, but he does try to play with them.

He only had one or two that were long, but he was scratching me and it hurt.

DD will actually bite hers off and usually she'll let me get anything she missed. But that's rare.
