Hello Fitri,


To cut baby nails, you have to be careful not to hit the baby's finger skin. If your baby's skin is exposed to nail clippers, you can do the following tips:

Rinse your fingers under clean running water
If it is bleeding, press the wound with sterile gauze for a few moments until the bleeding stops
Dry the wound with sterile gauze
The wound is small and doesn't bleed anymore, just keep it dry

You don't need to worry just yet. If the wound is small it will generally get better on its own. However, if the wound is wide, deep enough, you experience bleeding that doesn't stop, the wound is festering, or the child becomes in pain and fever, you should check your child to the doctor so that they can be given proper follow-up treatment.


Henceforth, you can use special baby nail clippers and it's better to trim the nails when the baby is sleeping and with sufficient lighting.
