I really loved my Safety 1st steady grip nail clippers! I brought these over 4 years ago right before my son was born and they just broke a couple weeks ago so I'm getting a new pair of these soon. I love these nail clippers to use on my son because regular nail clippers can be a little dangerous when you're attempting to trim a wiggly kids nails no matter what their age. I felt very comfortable using these on my son even when he was a newborn because they are very gentle but also really effective. It's easy to achieve a nice smooth edge with these clippers. And the large part on the end of the clippers really helps me hold onto them so I won't accidentally lose my grip and hurt my son by clipping into the skin. These are very easy and and safe and comfortable to use. The clipper part also folds down for when they are not in use and I don't believe a little kid would be able to twist it into cutting position very easily if they were to unnoticeably get ahold of them. Although they should be stored where a child can't reach them but accidents do happen! Would recommend these to all mothers with young children especially newborns!
