How do I file using BabyNails®?


Detach one of the included nail files by gently tearing along the perforated line.


Peel off the backing to reveal the adhesive layer. When removing the backing from the adhesive part of the nail file make sure you do not touch the adhesive. The natural oils found in your skin can affect it’s stickiness.


Press the nail file firmly onto the Thumble® Make sure the nail file is applied to the Thumble® correctly. Follow the contour of the Thumble® and make sure it doesn’t catch the raised lip above the 3 small holes.


The Thumble® is worn on the thumb. Whilst cradling your baby gently take one of their hands with the hand you are wearing the Thumble® on and gently place their hand between your first two fingers.

Starting from a corner of the fingernail, file in one sweeping direction along the nail. Once you have smoothed the nail in this direction then move to the other corner of the nail and gently file in the opposite direction. File in one direction at a time along the contour of the nail until the nail is short.

Do not rub or saw the nail file back and forth along the nail. Keep the nail file on the nail making sure you file the nail and not the tender skin under the nail bed.
