Mum Slammed For Giving Her Baby A 'Dangerous' Manicure

Mum Slammed For Giving Her Baby A 'Dangerous' Manicure

People have been outraged that a parent would do that to their child.

A mum has been taken to task on social media after she posted a photo of her baby's manicure.

A person on Reddit uploaded a photo of the aftermath of the job and people were not one bit happy.

One person responding to the image said: "Baby nails are sharp enough as it is, those things would tear your face right up."

Another added: "My wife and I just had a baby and this is soo true. The amount of times I've seen him scratch his own face and cry in the first weeks is like in the double digits. Most of the time he wears gloves now. Also does she not breast feed? My wife screams regularly from our son pinching her nipples and breast with his nails, even through gloves."

A third said: "As a parent who cut both children's nails from birth on mostly because mom was fearful of cutting while trimming them - this has to be some sort of joke a parent did with press on nails. A waste of time in my opinion but no way would anybody smart enough to conjure this up would leave them on - at least I hope."

People were worried that even if the baby didn't manage to injure a parent, there was a big chance they could injure themselves because they haven't formed the skills to know how sharp their nails are.

Living and Loving states babies' nails grow very fast after they're born and need to be looked after in the early stages of life.

People have put the manicure in the same category as parents getting their baby's ears or other parts of their bodies pierced.

One mum came under fire in 2017 for posting a photo showing she got her daughter's dimple pierced.

Enedina Vance wrote in a post on Facebook: "It looks so cute, right? I just know she's gonna love it. She'll thank me when she's older, lol. If she decides she doesn't like it, she can just take it out, no big deal.

"I'm the parent, she is my child, I will do whatever I want. I make all of her decisions until she's 18. I made her, I own her!

"I don't need anyone's permission. I think it's better, cuter and I prefer her to have her dimple pierced. It's NOT abuse!

"If it was, it would be illegal, but it's not. People pierce their babies every day, this is no different. MY BABY, MY CHOICE! PARENT'S CHOICE, PARENT'S RIGHTS! Don't judge my parenting, we all raise our kids differently, it's none of your business anyway!"

The photo quickly spread like wildfire over Facebook with hundreds of people calling the mum out for 'piercing' her child. Comments like, 'this is disturbing' 'what the f**k?' and 'who would do this to a baby' were, understandably, pretty common.
