My 3 months baby just dosent let me hold his hands to cut the nails when he is awake and im so scared that ill hurt him with the nailcutter. He also has a very light sleep and i cant do the same when he is asleep as well. I havent been able to cut his nails at all so far and am worried he may hurt his face since his nails are too sharp. I do want to keep his hands mittens free. Pls share some tips !

I feel the only possible way is to cut the nails while breastfeeding and the baby is sleeping.

Try cutting nails using a small pair of scissors... Children have very soft nails so u can use a blunt scissor as well( available at any baby shop)... And cut then when your child is asleep...
