Not cool at all in my opinion.  And I’ll say why: Babies stick their hands in their mouths.  Nail polish is toxic.  And yes, it’s completely unnecessary but apparently making sure other people know the gender of your kid is sooo important. Undecided

I painted my daughters toes but not until she didnt stick her feet in her mouth anymore but I have never painted her fingers…

And I also would like to add that age does not determine anything about a mother… I had my daughter at 17 and I never dumped her on anyone and me and Fi took care of by ourselfs…

I see people all over facebook painting their babies nails and I don’t get it AT ALL!! Of course I understand wanting your little girl to look girly, but nail polish is toxic and it chips!! Babies constantly have their hands/feet in their mouths..so, personally..I do not think that it is a smart thing to do at all.

Personally, my daughter will not have polish on period. However, that choice ironically enough is up to that childs parent. It may not make sense to others, people may love it, people may hate it… However, at the end of the day no matter the mothers age or how she chooses to live her life… it’s her baby and she may be tickled pink to paint the babies nails.

Nevertheless, I would probably think like you… what in the world?

I dont agree with it but as an fyi there is non-toxic nail polish.

No, simply because I don’t think babies should be sporting any kind of makeup.

I wouldn’t paint my baby’s nails.

Nor would I pierce her ears until she’s old enough to decide for herself that that’s what she wants., but that’s another thread entirely.

@Pinksapphire: No I don’t think that painting a babies nails are appropriate. But I don;t think her age has anything to do with it. Common sense does. I was a mother at 19 and wouldn’t have dreamed of painting my babies nails even with the non toxic nail polish that they make for children.

I wouldn’t for the reasons listed above. But not only would I worry about the baby eating it, their nails are so thin, I would worry about chemicals and toxins getting absorbed through the skin. Besides that, I think it’s just inappropriate. Babies are not little adults.
