Cuticle Scissors. Thank you to my friend Anne. The first time I almost ruined my son’s life was when I clipped the tip of his pudgy little baby finger with the baby nail clippers. The nail clippers came with our thermometer, another pair with our baby first aid kit and another with some bottles. You’d think that means they are the best way to cut a baby’s claws… I mean nails. I swore I’d never cut them again. He wore adorable baby mittens. Eventually though I started worrying about the impact of the mittens on his self esteem and social development if I sent him to kindergarten in them. Anne recommended I try cuticle scissors. What makes these THE ANSWER is that you can see with your own eyes what is between the two sharp pieces of metal. You can also slide them around into just the right position. If you’re giving someone a baby gift that comes with baby nail clippers, rip it open and replace them with cuticle scissors and a note!
