Mother got slammed for giving her baby a manicure with inch-long nails

An image of an infant with long pointy nails has been circling the web and people are concerned these sharp ‘claws’ can be extremely dangerous. 

An anonymous person has faced wide criticism after sharing a photo on social media showing an infant’s hand. The baby seems to have a manicure with long plastic nails on it.

The mother even advertised her creation on Twitter:

“I can do your babies nails…cheap rates.”

Some people immediately started criticizing what she had done, with one commenter writing:

“Baby nails are sharp enough as is, I can’t imagine equipping my daughter with claws. Hard pass.”

The photos show a little girl wearing different kinds of fake nails.

In one of the pictures, she has sharp claw-like nails, while in another, her nails seem to be more rounded.

The woman’s tasteless advert has since been widely shared by disturbed followers worried about the dangers of starting such a trend.

One person 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.”

Another chimed in:

“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.”

And a third said:

“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.

And it isn’t the first time something like this has emerged online.

A few months ago, a picture of a baby with sharpened nails shocked people around the world

Back then, people were talking about the dangers of the baby’s sharpened nails.

“Baby nails are sharp enough as it is, those things would tear your face right up,” one person wrote.

Another commented:

“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.”

Some people believed that it could have just been a mistake saying that their own babies had fast-growing nails that needed to be checked regularly.

Baby website Living and Loving said:

“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.”
