A photo of a baby with long ‘’stiletto’’ nails is trending news that occupied media attention. People are worried because the long pointy nails may cause severe injuries.
An unknown person is experiencing global criticism because she makes her baby’s nails long and sharp. The woman, on her own, took a picture of her child’s hand and shared it on social media.
The baby has a manicure with long plastic nails. Twitter is among the media platforms where the image circles. The mother wrote: ‘’I can do your babies nails…cheap rates.’’
As always, so as this time, the comments started appearing, and they weren’t soft.
One user wrote, ‘’ Baby nails are sharp enough as it, I can’t imagine equipping my daughter with claws. Hard pass.’’
But, the mother didn’t share only one picture; she shared many, where the baby has various designs of fake nails. In one pic, the nails are sharp. On the other, they are a little bit rounded.
What this woman did, has spread worldwide, and people are more and more concerned that it would become a trend.
One worried social media user wrote: ‘’You’re supposed to keep your baby’s nails cut short, so they don’t hurt themselves… this is trashy and f***in stupid.’’
And another one: “This is highly dangerous. Babies often times will poke themselves in the eyes or face, and even without nails, they’ll leave scratch marks. This is straight-up stupid and will only harm the baby further.”
There were more comments. Read this too: “I could understand painting a babies nails, but giving them fake ones? It’s too dangerous! They constantly are touching their faces, so it could really do damage to their eyes. It’s better to wait until they are a lot older.”
However, this wasn’t the first time that such a picture has emerged on social media. A couple of months ago, one woman posted a photo of a baby with sharpened nails. It shocked the entire world! If we get back to those comments, people commented about how the baby can hurt itself with those claws.
Read some of those comments below.
“Baby nails are sharp enough as it is, those things would tear your face right up,” one person wrote.
“I hope they did this just for the picture, but then again, they let the baby’s nails grow this much. Either way, it’s not good. I feel for the kid.”
Moreover, comments said that it is a mistake because the babies have fast-growing nails, so we need to check them daily.
“If your baby was born after her due date, her nails might be quite long and sharp.
Keeping them short helps prevent scratching of the face, which is common in small babies.”
