Hi, just wondering if you can post question to other mums. I would love some tips on how to cut toenails of a toddler who won’t let us near her feet. Thanks.

  • bride and distraction and gentle persuasion?



  • yes distraction but sleeping is great if you remember to do it then



  • wait until there asleep which just reminded me to cut master2 ‘s nails.



  • when they are alseep or if that does not work after a long bath while watching a dvd they love



  • I wait until my 3 year old is in a deep sleep.



  • Cutting them whole she’s asleep is a great way..



  • wait until she is asleep and do it then



  • My son and I sit outside on the deck so that any mess goes on the grass and he is distracted by the birds in the trees and other noises I get him to focus on and identify – it also feels like a more relaxed environment than the bathroom :) good luck!



  • Its amazing what you can get done while they are asleep..or take her to get her ‘nail done’



  • Try to do it when they are asleep. Goodluck!



  • How did you go in the end with cutting the toe nails?



  • wait until they are asleep – that is how I do my daughters at the moment
