Why you shouldn’t bite a newborns nails to keep them short


Have you ever asked yourself how to trim your baby’s nails without nipping the fingers or toes?

Don’t be tempted to bite your baby’s nails to keep them shorter.

That’s simply because germs from your mouth could get into any tiny cuts on your baby’s fingers, possibly causing an infection.

Plus you also won’t be able to see what you’re doing, and you’ll find your baby’s fingernail is tiny compared to your teeth.

To keep them nice and short, try these tips instead

Press the finger pad away from the nail and keep a firm hold on their hand. Try not to trim too low as the tip of your baby’s finger may bleed, which can lead to infection.

Newborn babies’ toenails are so soft they tend to curl over the end of the toe, which means it’s hard to tell which bit of the nail growth is still attached to the quick, so go slowly.

What if I cut their skin?

If you accidentally nip the skin, don’t worry. Gently hold a piece of clean, damp cotton wool on the cut, apply a little pressure and the bleeding will soon stop. Don’t use a plaster though, as if it comes away your baby may choke on it.

New borns tend to have soft, flexible nails that grow quite fast, sharp and dangerous to them. This means they can easily scratch themselves and even claw their faces, so you’ll need to learn how to keep your baby’s nails clean and short.


It’s not easy trying to hold a cross, wriggly baby while you delicately trim their teeny, weeny nails, but if you take care and use the right products it can be done.

The good news is, when your baby’s very small you can gently peel the ends off with your fingers. But then as your baby grows, you’ll need to start using special baby nail clippers; tiny, round-ended safety scissors or a fine emery board. Some parents also like using emery boards to smooth rough edges after cutting.

Get help with trimming nails

Trimming your baby’s nails is a whole lot easier when you’ve got another adult holding your wriggly baby still and distracting them. You might also want to pick a time when your baby is calm or distracted – for example when they’re feeding or even sleeping.

7 common questions about sensitive skin

How often do I need to cut them?

Fingernails grow particularly fast so you’ll need to cut them more than once a week. Toenails though grow more slowly, so a couple of times a month is fine.

At some point I kept avoiding coz I didn’t know how the first experience traumatized me, so here we are

Husband hangs self after discovering wife is pregnant by another man

Two men have committed suicide in Naivasha in two different cases as police expressed their concern over the rising cases mainly involving men.

In the first case, a 65-year-old man took his life through the rope in Kinamba estate in Naivasha after learning that he had a chronic disease which would not be curable.

The body of the father of four was found hanging in his home in the estate located off the Naivasha-Kirima road by his kin before police were called.

Emotions ran high among his kin and friends before the body was collected and taken to Naivasha sub-county hospital mortuary.

A witness John Mbugua said that that the man had been ailing for some years and was on and off medication and treatment in various hospitals seeking treatment.

He said that this had adversely affected the family financially and psychologically before the man decided to take his life.

“After learning that he could not heal he decided to take his life using a rope and police have been informed and collected the body,” he said.

Elsewhere, a man has committed suicide in Karagita estate in Naivasha after learning that his wife had been impregnated by another man.

The flower farm worker took his life in their house to protest against the pregnancy which according to him had caused irreconcilable rift in the family.

Members of the public in the sprawling estate were left in shock as police moved in to carry away to the lifeless body following the midday incident.

According to a neighbor only identified as Michael, the victim’s wife had a four month pregnancy which was the main source of conflict in the home.

He said that the man had on several occasions denied that he was responsible for the pregnancy before deciding to take his life.

“The man had on several occasions contacted us claiming that he suspected that the pregnancy belonged to another man,” he said.

He told of their shock on learning about the suicide adding that the couple had a two year old child who was at home when the incident occurred.

Naivasha OCPD Samuel Waweru confirmed both incidents adding that inquests files had been opened and the bodies taken to the local mortuary.

“In the recent past we have recorded several cases of suicides either related to family disputes and depression and the trend is worrying,” he said.

Tanasha proves her son was born on Diamond’s birthday (Documents inside)

Tanasha Donna has come out to speak out about the rumours that she and Diamond made up the fact that her son was born on her baby daddy’s birthday.

The mother of one came out with receipts to prove that her son’s story indeed started on the same day as his father, something I must admit I wasn’t fully convinced about too.

The scenarios were two; Either Tanasha purposefully got induced on Diamond’s birthday or she gave birth earlier and faked her delivery date. After growing tired of the constant attacks, the beauty went on Instagram and cleared things up.

She wrote, ‘What kind of mother would I be to let my son celebrate a false birthday each year? I would be a foolish mother to do that. Aga Khan would never post a fake birthday because it would be very easy to sue them.’

She said that it would be impossible for a respected hospital to play around with birth dates because that makes them liable for a lawsuit.

Again? Rihanna confronted with pregnancy rumors for the second time

Rihanna threw another starry soirée: The Diamond Ball 💎 in support of her Clara Lionel Foundation, which supports programmes focusing on global girls’ education, humanitarian aid and climate change.

She even got up on stage to sing #Lemonade with Pharrell—a first-ever live performance in the 5 years of the ball.


It was during this performance that a video of her singing has got tongues wagging.

Rihanna spots what seems to be a baby bump.

She has been dating boyfriend Hassan Jameel for a couple of years. Rihanna was first spotted with her boyfriend Hassan Jameel in 2017 and the two have been going strong ever since.


Back in July, 2017, Rihanna at the time appeared to be pregnant, and her protruding belly set the internet abuzz. She never addressed the matter, and much later appeared in public with a flat belly.

What sparked the rumors are the pictures from the premiere of her latest film, Valerian.

She wore an elegant flowing red dress and while some suggested she might have put on weight, few went on to speculate her pregnancy.

Pregnant women moving houses in first trimester are 42% more likely to have a premature baby


Pregnant women who move house during their first trimester are 42 per cent more likely to have a premature baby, research suggests.

A study of more than 140,000 women also found relocating in the early months of pregnancy raises the risk of a low-birth weight by 37 per cent.

Moving house can be stressful, noted the scientists at the University of Washington, Seattle.

Past research suggests feeling frazzled early on in pregnancy causes more harm to an unborn baby than when its mother struggles to cope later on.

The physical strain of moving, along with disruptions to healthcare when arriving in a new area, may also be to blame, the researchers wrote.

‘Major life transitions’, such as having children, often prompt people to move house, the researchers wrote in the British Medical Journal.

Studies have shown between 11 and 25 per cent of women relocate while pregnant.

Frequently moving house as a child has been linked to poor health, however, less was known about whether it leads to pregnancy complications.

Pregnant woman
Pregnant woman

The results further revealed moving house raised the risk of having a small baby by nine per cent.

However, this was not statistically significant after other factors were taken into account.

‘The negative impact of moving [could be] driven by the stress from the move itself, stressful situations leading to a move or disruption of care because of the move’, the researchers wrote.

Women's eNews
Women’s eNews

‘Asking patients about plans to move and using that as an opportunity to counsel patients on stress mitigating techniques and care continuity may be beneficial.’

The researchers stress they did not look at the reason for the move, or whether the women entered a more or less affluent area, both of which could influence pregnancy health.
